In-page "expand thread" needs "fetching" message RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • When expanding a thread on the main forum page (as opposed to opening the thread as it's own page), there are some times when fetching a post isn't instantaneous.  Unfortunately, there's no indication that the page is attempting to load the further responses to the thread.  In fact, if I'm attempting to get more information by clicking on the "1 replies" "opener", it actually makes the "1 replies" marker disappear before attempting to fetch the reply.  If the reply isn't fetched quickly, it leaves the impression that there is no further information in the thread, as it appears to be the end of the thread.

    Can the page display a "loading..." or "fetching..." message as it's attempting to retrieve the reply to a thread?

  • Agreed. It's something we've got on our list.
