[Note Additions at Bottom]
(2) Several people have complained that the blogs lacked any “table of contents,” providing a quick overview of the recent posts. This already existed, but to make it more obvious, I’ve added a “Teasers” link near the top. It provides convenient access to the full list of posts with short teasers.
(3) I have recently added new columnists, and will be doing so again in the future, gradually producing a list which may be inconveniently long for some readers. Therefore, I have also built a feature allowing the selection of columnists to be “customized,” with individual readers choosing which less interesting or agreeable ones they wish to demote to the bottom. The selection popup is accessed by clicking the menu icon ☰ next to the Columnist heading on the Home page, and the settings are saved in a cookie. With this feature in place, perhaps readers will stop objecting so much to those columnists they dislike.
(5) One or two people missed the standard Sidebar on the old Mobile version. Therefore, I’ve added a Summary selection at the front of the top menu of the Mobile version, taking you to a page providing a convenient list of all the columnists and bloggers, together with their most recent writings.
(6) Based on reader requests, I’ve restored the old Facebook Share button.
(7) Comments in a long thread may be accessed in various different ways, including via the hover-popup windows in other comments to which they are connected, and this might cause users to waste their time rereading comments they’d already examined earlier on the thread. Therefore, after a comment appears in a hover-popup window the body of that comment in the main text becomes slightly grayed out.
(8) Since most readers are now already familiar with the nature and purpose of The Review, I’m removed the block of descriptive text below the “Why The Unz Review” link on the Home page. This raises the location and visibility of the column of bloggers.
(10) Since people found the “Teasers” view of the various blogs convenient, I made these more easily accessible via links on the standard Sidebar.
(11) Full HTML page-caching has greatly reduced the load-time for pages, including those with long comment-threads, so I’ve reenabled embedded Tweets and YouTube videos in comments (see below).
