Recent Comments Feature

Categories: General Dave Rathbun @ 10:52 pm

I have added a new option on the right sidebar menu today: Recent Comments. I have been quite pleased with the initial participation, and I do hope that my random musings will provide some education or perhaps even some entertainment along the way… and I hope that some of you (not spammers, no, stay away! :-D ) might be inspired to leave a comment or two.

From time to time.

In any case, now if you just want to see the recent comments the last five are listed for you in reverse chronological order. Only approved comments will be on the list.

    I like your posts and explanation in this blog, I am really grateful to you for sharing your tips and techniques in Business Objects with all of us. I would like to see more posts in this blog explaining @aggregate_awareness in detail with examples, Index Awareness with examples…. and other important tips and tricks..

    In my opinion, @Aggregate_Aware() is one of the most useful features Designer offers. We have quite a few presentations already posted on the Integra Solutions library page that cover this subject in some detail. I do plan to cover it here on my blog but probably not for a while. The index aware feature was an interesting idea that seems to have failed somewhat in the implementation. From what I understand it is only functional in certain very strict situations. I generally don’t try to spend a lot of time working on “index awareness” in my universes.

    Thanks for your comment.

    It has come to my attention that the formatting of the “Recent Comments” area on the right sidebar is a bit off when using Firefox. It looks fine with IE, which is the brownser I use to test my initial developments with. Firefox seems to have a different way of interpreting the style sheet entires for the nested lists used to display that information.

    It doesn’t change the information, but it doesn’t look nearly as nice. Hopefully I will be able to figure it out. :-?

    Edit: It’s fixed, Firefox users should now see the recent comments block laid out as expected.
