Going to try something new with the site. At the end of each thread will be a section with links to related content on the site. For example, if you have a thread about JBP decandling, you should see links to related content. I will let it run for a few days to see how it does, and then would like to get peoples' impressions.

(Is this to be added only to posts since you made this change or will it be in old opsts as well? I don’t see it working as yet).

Never mind, looks like it just kicked in.

Just noticed......probably a bit superfluous. And makes for a cluttered, claustrophobic feel.:)

Personally I find it potentially very useful. I often search for related posts after reading a thread so having it at the bottom of the thread saves me a step. Just because its there doesn’t mean you have to look at it.

I am hoping that it does a better job relating content... because right now it seems somewhat random. Also the images are too large, and the text is really ugly. It doesn't fit with the look and feel of the site.

/EDIT I have turned it off for now - because I can't get it to do what I want. I make what I consider to be reasonable changes to the code, and it breaks the module. I will have to explore further outside of the site.

I thought you were setting up a dating site. ?

With the Smoke and his pink thong leaving I thought the demographics would no longer be very even. ?

I did something a little different. At the end of each thread you should now see a widget titled "similar threads" with similar content :) It works best if you keep your thread title short and specific.

I put my name in the thread title, or I try to. All the links at the bottom of the page all link the viewer to my other threads with my name in the title.
Everyone will be able to see ALL my mediocre work!! Huzza!!!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D
10-15 folks post regularly that have top info to share, the rest of us are more like, "Open at your own risk";):D:D:D:D:D:D:D
Probably, however, an easier route towards information for a newer member of the community.


Channeling some negative vibes, sorry......been a long week. Must be "hangry"!!:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

Although the search feature was easy enough, this is a great addition.

Super awesome. I’m trying out a new species of tree, and found all the info and design ideas I need with minimal effort. Don’t even open a thousand tabs, just keep going deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole :p
