    Smile Thanks for the Improved Printing!

    As far as missed articles... we don't have an easy way to search by date. But between the dates showing in the "Recent Headlines", "Latest From" areas and in the Top Menu headlines, it shouldn't be terribly time-consuming to spot the articles you missed. Also, if you're reading mostly daily, the links on the site that you have already visited should be purple, and the non-visited ones are orange. So that's a good visual queue to what you've missed.
    Ray, thank you for fixing the printing. Your decision to only print main article was perfect. Thanks for listening to my request. Thanks, Tools of Ignorance

    Facts/Flukes still has wrapping lines of text when printing. So have to copy and paste to print :-( All other articles print fine.

    Are you using Safari as your browser? The only place I see this is on my iPhone.

    I just printed out of IE8 and Firefox. No wrapping on today's Fact/Fluke.

    I'm struggling with this as well. I'd love to see a new link off the top menu that says something like "timeline" and it lists links to all articles in a simple order of when published. Sometimes I can't log on for 3 or four days, and this would let me easily see what I missed.

    On another issue, when you click on the new user guide, it has not been updated for the new format. It still talks about the left navigation. You may want to update that as well.

    Yes, on my to-do list. Thanks for the reminder.

    Anyone else having problems printing? Or am I the only one complaining about it? Today the only article to NOT run off the right page margin was the NFBC article. The Research and Facts/Flukes articles both off the right page margin.

    Also, just because an article has a date stamp of 12:01 am, whatever date - doesnt necessarily mean they all come out at the same time - correct?

    I just printed today's F/F, no issues.

    And we schedule most (but not all) of our content to hit the site at 12:01am.

    if they post at different times - could the date stamp reflect that? they all seem to have the 12:01 stamp regardless of when they actually show up.

    I believe you, but it's not something we're doing on this end. I can't really help you debug your printer's behavior, sorry.

    There really isn't much point to the timestamps of the articles, only the date matters. If I had my way, we wouldn't be displaying the timestamp at all. I guess I don't understand what the concern is that you're raising in that regard.

    it is just frustrating ... some pages print fine, others (F/F) not so much ... then i am back to copying/pasting in to Word to print ... is it my printer (drivers? - dont know, cant tell/troubleshoot) ... it seems to happen on pages where the font size changes in the body of the article

    yesterday AM i found, i think 3 new articles dated 2/29/12 12:01 am, and printed
    last night i noticed a new article with a 2/29/12 that wasnt there when i viewed/printed the articles in the AM ...
    so if i hadnt noticed, or not visited the site last night or today, the (4th?) newest article from 2/29/12 would have been missed

    We release most of our daily content at 12:01am, but occasionally do slip other pieces out during the day. There's no hard-and-fast rule there.

    and thereby a reason perhaps to have a date stamp for when the article actually appears ... ?

    One of the things I am adjusting to is that the conversation about an article is now mostly contained within the article, rather than out on the forums. Then if I go early to an article, there is limited discussion, thus I have to go back to the article to see further discussion, without knowing there is something new such as occurs on the forum discussions. Any advice on keeping current on discussions that are going on in the articles, rather than the forums?

    Whistler - almost every website that lets people comment. Is run this way. If you go to a rotowire by jeff erickson. There will be hardly any comments when it first goes up. A few hours later there will be some more comments and Jeff might explain something further in the comment. This really isnt anything new.

    Thanks Circle, just because other sites do it this way doesnt answer my question. I guess I am more linear. Was just asking for advice on how to negotiate, other than hijacking an article discussion into the forums.

    Sorry Whistler. I personally don't think it's possible. Would you want an update every time someone commented on an article? Your email would get flooded then. Im not sure that answers your question either. Just my two cents on it. I was using rotowire as an example that's all. Just saying that this isnt a new concept. That's all.

    Weird, I still can't see that. I'll try out of a different browser next week.
