    Today I got the following alert:


    After clicking on "Daniel Hood's profile post" I'm shown this:


    And as you can notice, I can't see the comment by Russ. I need to click on "View previous comments..." in order to see it.

    Since I clicked to see the profile post comment that Russ leave on the profile post... shouldn't the system automatically expand the previous comments and show me directly Russ's comment?

    @Daniel Hood deleted his post likely right before you clicked that.

    That has nothing to do with it, as he could still view the profile post at the time. He's saying, if the alert isn't connected to one of the last 3 comments, you have to click view previous comments to view the comment.
    Amaury and imthebest like this.

    Got it. I misread his comment. I thought he was saying it wasn't showing when he clicked the view previous link.

    So is this as designed? If so, it results very confusing.

    Yeah it is as designed. We only show the most recent 3 comments (these are cached for performance reasons). If you receive an alert on something that isn't one of those 3 then you will have to click "View previous comments" to see it.
