Avant Browser Tips section

Post by yoleonard » Thu Mar 10, 2005 8:34 pm

I'd like a Tips section where people can tell how they use the cool features of Avant Browser.

Yeah - to me the "Help" section is more for people researching a specific problem.

The Tips section (as I was envisioning it) would be a section where people can learn all the useful cool ways to better use the Avant Browser.

I agree with this idea

I just posted a "tip" about using Grokker search engine to Avant discussion, where it probably doesn't belong, and it was moved to the Avant request section at the end of another thread on using Scroogle where it also doesn't belong

A tips section would allow people to post their settings, Adblock additions, search line additions etc in one place

To be fair, your tip was nothing but the Quick Search string and it was merged to the QUICK SEARCH Suggestions thread, exactly where it belongs. The Quick Search suggestion ahead of yours was the Quick Search string for Scroogle, but if you had read any of the other posts, you would have found that it wasn't a "Scroggle" thread at all.

in your Avant options search section will do it

Merged to this topic.

A simple line on how to use a particular search site doesn't belong in "Avant Requests" which is intended (if I read all the other requests there correctly) for requests for changes or additions to Avant's functionality.

So, you're agreeing that it's in the correct thread, but that the thread is located in the wrong place, correct?

I'd agree that now it could be moved. I believe it was originally left there when we were getting requests for search engines. Putting it in the Requests forum allowed people to see it before they "requested" one.

Now that Avant's quick search is no longer a new feature, it'd probably be a good idea to move it.
