One on the most frustrating issues you told us about with the new-look HfP (except for lack of dark mode …. which we’re working on) was the over-sensitivity of the ‘Reply’ button in the comments.
This wasn’t a problem on desktop, obviously, but was an issue for mobile users. The comment box would open up when you were simply trying to scroll down.
To be frank, we have no idea if the sensitivity was worse than it was on the old site. Technically, it shouldn’t have been. It might be that the larger ‘Reply’ button made a difference. I don’t think it was anything to do with placement.
Anyway, Neil @ Enbecom has written a fix for us. I have tested it side by side, flicking between the live site and a ‘dummy’ staging site, and it does seem to work.
On mobile, you now need to give the ‘Reply’ button a decent prod for the box to open. Simply swiping up or down shouldn’t do it.
Let’s see how it goes. If this was an issue for you, hopefully things are now a bit easier.
