Posted by Nyiah [send private reply] at July 31, 2002, 06:00:45 PM This is just a suggestion, but can you do me a favor and put personal webpages or "non-related" sites such as irc.openprojects.net in a new window? It makes browsing a little easier...
Posted by Nyiah [send private reply] at July 31, 2002, 06:14:02 PM Oh and another thing, can you put the locked posts on the bottom and everything else on the top?
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at July 31, 2002, 06:50:20 PM No. At least for the opening links in a new window. Just right-click "Open in a new [window|tab]" in your favorite browser.
As for showing locked threads at the bottom of the page...you can't do that exactly, but you can set "only show threads in the last N days" to something like 7.
Posted by Neumann [send private reply] at July 31, 2002, 06:59:23 PM I kinda agree with Nyiah. Extra site links should be opened in a new Windows. I believe it's no big deal and it ease navigation on the site.
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at July 31, 2002, 06:59:40 PM Elaborating on what u_l said, having the links open in a new window by default makes things harder for people in the usual browsers to open them in the same window if they so desire, while most browsers have "open in new window" options. If you have a 3 button mouse, Netscape/Mozilla browsers will even open something in a new window if you click the link with the middle button.
As for the locked threads bit, I think an option to just reverse the order of listing threads would be better. Perhaps it will appear some day soon. =)
Posted by Nyiah [send private reply] at August 01, 2002, 12:57:26 PM I guess I'm just used to seeing linked sites opening in a new window and I have a habit of thinking that the opened site is in a different window and I tend to close the window before I realise that I closed everything.... did that make sense??
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at August 01, 2002, 02:40:32 PM Yes, but that's not our fault. =)
Posted by metamorphic [send private reply] at August 03, 2002, 12:39:49 PM I would have thought at least, most if not all people that visit a programming website would at least be proficient with their browesr of chioce. Maybe you could have the links, but above them put something like "These links will open in a new window".
Posted by Nyiah [send private reply] at August 03, 2002, 05:29:58 PM hmm, I dunno... that kinda sounds tacky, I don't see too many sites that have that
Posted by eXorcus [send private reply] at August 06, 2002, 07:51:40 AM In IE (I'm not sure if it's the same in Netscape) you can make the link open in a new window pretty easily by holding down the shift key as you left click on the link. Way easier that always having to right click. =P
Posted by Nyiah [send private reply] at August 06, 2002, 08:34:50 AM oh hey, that's spiffy, I didn't know that...
Posted by Linux_Penguin [send private reply] at August 06, 2002, 05:20:01 PM I think in mozilla you can specify what the modifier key it, like alt or ctrl instead of shift. Im really starting to like mozilla :)
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at August 07, 2002, 11:58:09 AM The gesture support in mozilla is supposed to be nifty too. And you can middle click on a link to open it in a new window or tab (or really any other button, but it defaults to middle) on X at least.
Posted by Linux_Penguin [send private reply] at August 07, 2002, 09:05:17 PM I tried gestures, and it just doesn't work for me. Most of the time I'll do the wrong one and get pissed.
Posted by CodeRed [send private reply] at August 08, 2002, 12:59:20 AM Thats the stupidest thing ever. Ever play Black and White? That game uses mouse gestures and it is the reason I stopped playing it, I can never get it to work right
Posted by unknown_lamer [send private reply] at August 08, 2002, 11:00:06 AM I just said they were supposed to be nifty, I never used them before.
