I have added a feature at the homepage and thread level where 1-4 Insight entries are listed randomly picked at each page load from the past 20 recent Insights. The homepage lists them under the featured thread and the thread level lists them under the editor box. I'm trying to get these amazing works the most exposure possible! Some tweaking design wise is still in order.

Er... Greg, have you tried viewing it on a mobile device? It looks horrible on my iPhone, and it is nasty on my iPad in portrait mode.

There is one annoying feature of Insight that I want to bring up. Maybe it has been addressed on here, but I'm too lazy to look at 5 pages of comments (sorry).

If I read an article on Insight, and decide to write a comment to it, I have to go back to the forum to find the relevant thread. Is there a simpler way to find this thread? It would be nice if the Insight article itself has a direct link to that thread. Otherwise, I have to hunt for the right forum and look for the thread, or do a global search for it.

Or maybe there's already a simple way to do this and I'm not seeing it.

Most should have a button at the bottom. Which Insight were you looking at that didn't have one?

Greg,

Oh, never mind. After seeing your post, I went back and found the BIG BLUE RECTANGULAR link that said "Discuss in the Community".

I probably scrolled past that to the very last comment, and I knew that the space for comment doesn't work on Insight. So that's why didn't see a way to go back to the thread on PF.

I am a great fan of the series of articles by Urs Schreiber, even though their content is almost incomprehensible to me. I like to know that this very valuable part of Greg's website contains high-level, technical contributions, too. So many thanks from my side to the writers. Keep them coming, guys!!

He'll keep writing if he knows you enjoy them. Drop a comment in his Insights that let you know you enjoy them :)

Keep them coming, guys!!
btw, we're always looking for new writers :)

When I click on my "Insights Author" badge in my profile page, I go to a page with the following message:
Nothing Found Sorry, the post you are looking for is not available. Maybe you want to perform a search?
I don't have a plan to write anything for now, but this doesn't feel right!

Suggestion: make the "Insight Author" badge in the forum
link to that author's insight-author page (which lists their insights).

We had that for awhile, but there is an issue with members that have spaces. Spaces aren't allowed in wordpress accounts so it would become a broken link. I couldn't find a workaround so I removed the link.

Is it more than replacing all spaces? str_replace(" ","-",$username) Admin Is it more than replacing all spaces? str_replace(" ","-",$username)
I'd have to create a little addon as that isn't allowed in templates, but I might rather do an htaccess rewrite.

Fixed it, thanks for the motivation :)

I just figured it out! The problem is, I changed my username. So when I click on my badge, my current PF username is sent but my wordpress username is still my old PF username.
