Grrr. Aarrgh.

Does anyone know where I can find out what S2 is supposed to do - so I can tell if some of it's more annoying aspects are bugs or 'features'? At the moment I am actually considering taking people who use it of of my active friends list, because I refuse to leave comments on posts which give me no way of deleting them.

If you really need to delete a comment on an S2 journal, it can be done but it's a pain. Here's the "link" URL from an S2 comment:

http://www.livejournal.com/users/zotz/88873.html?thread=620073#t620073

And here's the URL for deleting a comment I made:

http://www.livejournal.com/delcomment.bml?journal=adjectivemarcus&id=1420927

So presumably the URL to delete that S2 comment would be

http://www.livejournal.com/delcomment.bml?journal=zotz&id=620073

I haven't tried this yet.

Well that seems to work, but it's hideous. Do you know why the link to delete comments isn't shown in these pages?

Well it would be nice if you would add that delete link, but for me the biggest disadvantage of S2 is that I have to persuaude *everyone* on my friends list to do that instead of changing my own style. But I've said that before, so I'll shut up.

Tell me, madam, what is this "S2" of which you speak?

New LJ style system. Currently a system for making comment pages as ugly as journal pages.

I've my own issues with S2 (see here). As far as I can see, at the moment it looks nifty, but doesn't yet (unless you do lots of workarounds) offer the functionality of S2, and as some of that functionality is bloody useful, I certainly shan't be changing.

I changed to S2 but then used the option to keep my comments in the old style as I couldn't unhide anaonymous posts I in the newer version.

Does that mean I get to stay :)

Re:

under the other tab when you go into edit customizations there is a drop down box labeled
Enable to use the old comment page instead of the newer style specific view.

Change that to yes.
