What is "S7.addthis.com"?

This site is identified as the main delay in loading some pages on iSpot on my PC. Is it "one of yours", or some piggybacking site?

AddThis

It's the third party site that provides all the 'Share on Facebook' type options when you mouse over the 'Share' button.

I'm not sure how many iSpotters would want to share a forum post on social networking sites. I just find it annoying when it pops up and gets in the way of what I'm trying to read. But then maybe I'm just a grumpy old so-and-so! ;-)

Yes, really annoying but maybe I'm a grumpy old so and so too!

Me too

I'd like to think that I am not generally a grumpy old so-and-so (others might disagree), but this 'feature' regularly turns me into one.

Noted. It does get in the way. We will look at using some alternative that is not so annoying.

No -

I started my browsing, as usual, with "My Spot".

Reply Option

There is something I've noticed several times which might be connected - there is no 'Reply' option on the first post of a given thread, only 'Add New Comment'. All others posts offer a 'Reply' option instead.

If My Spot - Changes is only triggered by replies, that might explain it. (The replies to my added comment did show up in my Changes.)

Perhaps the first post should offer both options?

Thanks for this suggestion.

Thanks for this suggestion. The forum and comments are, I think, all based on standard Drupal modules, so there may be some options we can use to fix this.

I'm sorry, but you have not said exactly what the 'same problem' is. The thread is a long and old one, so if you are referring to something there, please indicate what it is.

Thanks.
