About commenting in very long galleries

It happens that if you want to comment in a gallery and that gallery is enormous (like mine :giggle: was before I changed the settings) is that you have to scroll an incredible amount of time just to reach the comment box.

I provide here two solutions:

  • First
One thing that works is to press tab button: Tabulator Icon (this button from the keyboard is called "tab").

When you press, the "focus" (that is the place that is active for your keyboard) changes to the comment box, so you can comment. This don't work in profiles if the users have "statuses" (like I do) as the focus moves to a status post comments' and not to the comment section.

For example, try to load this: batjorge.deviantart.com/galler… and then press tab. And start typing. Although it will continuosly charge more and more deviations you can write the comment. For publish a comment without the mouse you can press "Alt+Enter".

  • Second
One thing that works better in profiles rather than galleries is to write "#comments" at the end of a url.

batjorge.deviantart.com/galler…

It was a doubt asked by WerewolfPuppy in her profile. I used as an example the gallery of the awesome batjorge one of my favourite artists here with the permission of Yesterdays-Paper :D

I found an easier way.  Just Type something in the Search Bar of the gallery you're looking at, that is probably not in the gallery you're looking at, and the majority if not all of the gallery images will disappear, allowing quick and easy access to the Comments section.

There's more.  If you want to find your comment later: after searching in the gallery like above, open the comments page that your comment is most likely to be on by right-clicking and selecting the page number at the bottom of the comments section and opening it in a new tab.  Then copy the portion of the URL that's after the /gallery/ portion on the cleared page and paste it after the new specific comments page's URL.  That will not only clear the images in the gallery out of the way and make it easier to reach the comments section, but will also put you on the page with your comment, making it easy to find.

Examples:
linux-rules.deviantart.com/gal…
