# Gary Hewitt's Numberplay Commenting Enhancer

Drag this link —Numberplay enhancer — to your bookmark bar at the top of the browser. For more information on using bookmarklets, marklets.com has this FAQ.

Use the enhancer bookmarklet when you're reading Numberplay and it will enhance the comment interface ... It actually works on most of the NYT blogs, but performance is best when there are under 200 comments.

January 26, 2014 The NYT redesign has broken a number of features of the enhancer. Watch as they get restored.

March 23, 2014 Most of the features have been adapted to the NYT redesign.

Former and current enhancements include:

• Numbering each comment
• Auto-loading of all comments to make the rest of this useful (really works now). Now with progress bar.
• Search-as-you-type comments. Restored March 22, 2014
• Autolinking references (e.g., #35) to the referenced comment. Restored March 22, 2014
• Autolinking back-references. Restored March 22, 2014, with better design

$e=mc^2$
(for display).

Now improved! - courtesy of MathJax. Click on equations to zoom, right click to do other things.
