New Overflow Mode in Talkback Forums

Thursday May 27th, 1999

If you check out the talkback for the recent ChromeZone announcement, you'll notice that we have a new overflow mode for articles with more than 75 responses. Above the responses is a dropdown menu where you can choose how many messages to display (10,20,30,50, or All). The default display, when you first visit the forum, is five messages. Give it a try, and report any bugs you find.

Nice! two things

Put "last 5 messages" (the default, whe overflow kicks in) into the list too...

Also, is there some way of putting a "Previous 10"(if not viewing the oldest messages) and "Next 10" (if not viewing the most recent) so that people can flip back to to older messages, without having to load the whole darned list. (we're never happy are we)

Do you have the php3 code in a "viewable" state yet? No pressure, just wondering. I wouldn't mind slogging through the existing code, as ugly as it may be, just to get a feel for how this works...
