    Daily archive of (forum): INDEX

    I like the new format for the text version of the Daily archive.

    I like the index up front that lets me eye-ball at once the broad subject matter of the day's postings.

    I like that the messages are grouped by subject.


    Reading daily archives is WAY faster than reading thge threads on-line; it has the disadvantage that you read only the one day's contribution to any thread. Grouping postings by subject alleviates some of the disadvantage.

    A good fix.

    Re: Daily archive of (forum): INDEX

    I like the index too, but have one suggestion. When I click on one of the index links, it takes me to wopr.com, but not to the post, or even the Lounge itself. However, instead of the link going to the lounge post, would it be possible to have the index link take the reader to that post in the daily archive message, which in turn does have the link to the Lounge.

    Again, in any regard, it is nice to see a recap of the post titles at the start of the archive. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Daily archive of (forum): INDEX

    I tried the Daily Archive bit. I still had to come to the lounge to see if there was anything on that I didn't have sent to me and then ended up rereading the ones I had read in my email. Especially since you frequently have to review the earlier parts of the thread to see what an answer refers to. I am down to only two days active.

    I like the categories for a starting place. But I wish there was a way to mark all forums read from the categories page. Actually I wish there was a way to mark each forum read without marking all forums at once. But I think that has been discussed before.

    Anyway another tx to Eileen and all the others who put in so much time and work. This lounge is so well organized it makes it makes some of the others I have come across a real pain to have to dig through. While I am clicking, scrolling, digging, etc I am wondering why they can't be more like WOPR <img src=/S/exclamation.gif border=0 alt=exclamation width=15 height=15>

    We don't use a Categories page. Which page do you mean?

    Tonight, it will - they will take you to the relevant place in the Digest.

    The links in each digest post have always taken you to that post on the Board.

    Do you want the main page to list categories or forums?
    categories

    Set this way I don't have to wait for all the boards to load. But to clear all I have to change the setting back to forums. No biggie.

    Oh <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15> how embarrassing! I had completely forgotten that option.
    I never imagined anybody would use it - I actually thought I'd removed it...

    I wonder how many others there are out there suffering because of my oversight?
    I'll set about bringing it up to par as quickly as possible.

    Re: Daily archive of (forum): INDEX

    "Suffering" might be a little extreme. Like I said I like it because it loads faster. Mostly I just ignore the posts I am not interested in. But ever so often the numbers mount up to thousands that I haven't read and I get nervous. Like I might miss something vital if I don't read them all. Then I make the change and clear them all.

    I've pretty well stopped doing that. The digest gives me a handle on what's going on. I can always get the thread. If nothing else, the digest lets me do most of my redaing off-line. I like that.
