Giving the practical example: how to move quickly to Lounge posts going one, or two, or N months back? Just clicking the navigational "Next" button gazillion times does not seem practical. Some additional navigational options, allowing to move back in time faster will be nice to have, i.e. going directly to the date, or at least page number.
Not sure about date accuracy, but essential logic works. My suggestion to Chris, Sean and dev folks at CP is to implement this feature (which actually already exists) in a form of GUI navigational control.
1. If my assumption is correct then page num is approx a quotient of that query param (rows offset) and number of records displayed per page (it's drop-down selectable).
2. I would agree that their might be better navigational, or filtering options, for e.g. based on the date of posting. I simply don't know internal details of your site implementation, but it looks like a simple parameterized SQL query can do the job.
3. Permalinks are fine; this suggestion is not a mutex to permalink, but rather a complementary one, useful for e.g. in case someone didn't make a permalink, and now trying to travel back in time to particular POI.
I was reluctant to report this. This [^] screen shot shows I was awarded rep points thrice for answering a question. Was it because the answer was posted on 12/12/12 at 12:12 PM.
Will i get some extra rep points for being honest and reporting this ?
If someone reports a real bug, he/she will get 30 points.
Although I think that doing it could help finding bugs, I also think that members should report them not because of a "prize", but just because it helps to make CP even better than it already is.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpfull answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
