GreaterWrong now has a new feature: image zoom / slideshows.

Whenever a post contains images (such as this recent post about embedded world-models), you can click on any image…

Clicking an image to enlarge

… to show an enlarged, “lightbox” style view of it:

Enlarged image in “lightbox”

You can then page through all the images in the post with the arrow keys, or by clicking the next/previous image buttons at the left/right edges of the screen:

Going to the next image

Use the scroll wheel to zoom in or out:

Zoomed in on an image

When zoomed in, you can drag around the screen to pan (just like Google Maps, etc.).

Hit the space bar to reset size/position.

Hit Escape to close the slideshow/lightbox.

Edited to add: You can also hit accesskey-L to start or resume the slideshow. (On Mac Chrome, for example, that’s Control-Option-L.)

I have a bug report.

I'm trying to sort by 'top' or by 'comments' on ea.greaterwrong, but the page breaks and says

Cannot query field "tag" on type "Comment".

Any chance of fixing? I quite appreciate the sorting on GW, has features we don't have on LW.

(I can't recall the schelling place to give you guys bug reports, so I just picked one of your recent posts...)

Should be fixed now. Evidently EA forum doesn't (yet?) support comment threads on tags.

Yeah, the EA Forum often lags behind a bunch of versions behind us. Sorry for the hassle this probably causes for supporting both the EA Forum and LW.
