Jan 2022 Site Fixings


Rychan AHH, this thread was the right thread....

Finding old threads can be(e) a right pain.
We've posted thousands of threads for over a decade,
The search function isn't great. I should probably bulk that up.
Maybe a "list of the threads I've started" page might be handy..?

I DEFINITELY need to paginate comments, too. I've looked into it a couple of times, but usually give up after an hour staring at badly coded comment code!!

Any other thoughts, let me know.

Today's Fixings


Added a "Message" placeholder to the shoutbox's input.
For ages, I'd considered adding Shout there, but Shout probably won't help that much, 'cos it looks closely enough to Search that it'd still be easy to make that mistake.. hmmm..
This morning, I thought "FFS, just put a different word in there, then!!" and it all went much better.
Now hopefully we won't get a "constant" influx of searches in the shoutbox
Woot!


The "My Threads" link is at the bottom of the right hand sidebar, next to the "More" link.
"My Threads" is recent threads you've started. "More" is your recent posts that have been replied to.
I need to word those better, but also keep them tiny enough to fit down at the bottom of the sidebar.
Suggestions welcome.

What I Didn't Do


Paginated comments are still baffling me, mostly because it also requires me to tweak the sidebars to link to the right thing, depending on what you've already read.
I might need to add extra base functionality to the site for that to work correctly.
AARGGghghhghghh!!!
