All pages button

Post by Logan » Fri Sep 19, 2003 12:58 pm

Sometimes when browsing the forum a All Pages Button on a thread would make understanding that thread more convenient and for those with broadband a nice little choice.  Having to click each page and going back and forth is sometimes a little bothersome.  If it is possible I would like to see this feature added to the forum.   ;)

I second this request... if it can be selectively set - not globally. I would want all BUT the Word Association thread expanded by default.

Or... had a "thunk"...

Clicking on the thread title opens all pages, but clicking on the page number link (instead) opens just that page (and keeps that thread set to 'a page at a time')

Yes it would have to be selective or those on dail-up would kill us.  I was thinking along the line of having it put at the end of threads with mutiple pages.  For example a thread with 3 pages would look like this <<Pages 1 2 3 All>>.

Yes, that works even better.

Just wondering if this feature is even possible using YABB?  And if so would it be too much trouble to incorporate?

I would be quite surprised if it was completely and totally impossible to implement it.

I would NOT be at all surprised if it were too much trouble, though. ;)
