More Recent Comments

Per a request by a frequent BJS commentor, I’ve added a “More Recent Comments” option under the Recent Comments section of the sidebar.

I’m curious how our readers find articles on our website, and if there might be other improvements that would help you find posts or articles.

About Norm Fisher

Norm was raised in the UCC in Connecticut, and like many fell away from the church after high school. With this background he saw it primarily as a service organization. On the miracle of his first child he came back to the church. On moving to Texas a few years later he found a home in Lutheranism when he was invited to a confessional church a half-hour away by our new neighbors.

He is one of those people who found a like mind in computers while in Middle School and has been programming ever since. He's responsible for many websites, including the Book of Concord,, and several other sites.

He has served the church in various positions, including financial secretary, sunday school teacher, elder, PTF board member, and choir member.

More of his work can be found at


More Recent Comments — 7 Comments

  1. …just wanted to be the first to comment on the most recent comment thread about the new “more recent comments” feature and thereby have my comment posted in the feature as the most recent.

  2. I’ve had a comment emailed to me that the new page should use the same format as the “Recent Comments” section of the sidebar. It’s supposedly easier to scan.

    I’d like other comments on whether you think that’s true .. I personally find the sidebar feature irritating, because it ONLY gives the commentor name and the title of the post that it’s on. Having just a bit of the actual comment on the new page seems much better to me — you can perhaps figure out which comment you are looking for. I can change the format to make specific items easier to scan if I know what people are looking for when scanning this list.

  3. I like it better the way you have it now, so that you can see a little bit of the actual comment. While you’re at it, I wish that there was some way to search for someone’s comments and see them specifically.

  4. I personally just scan the list for my favorite topics and my favorite commenters such as Mr Pierce, Mr Halvorson, Pr Scheer, Pr Noland, etc.  These folks “always explain everything in the kindest way.”
