           Summary: comment replies are always hidden until clicked;
                    defeats searching and direct linking
           Product: WineHQ Apps Database
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: appdb-unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: winehq at tibit.com

Comment replies in the appdb are hidden by default, requiring one or more
manual clicks under each comment to reveal the whole conversation.  As far as I
can tell, there is no single link or button to expand all comments on the page.
 Not even disabling javascript in my browser gets me a complete view of the
page.  This creates two problems:

1. It defeats the web browser's find-in-page feature, which would otherwise be
a very effective way for a user to find others experiencing (or solving) a
particular problem, and is just plain useful on web pages in general.

2. It renders useless the direct links that appear in appdb comment
notification email messages, such as this one:

If there is a way for users to configure away this hide-by-default behavior,
please make it more obvious.  Regardless, please consider adding an
expand-all-comments link.
