Recently Active Threads: limited maximum node depth

G'day All,

This morning, I saw in "Best Nodes" a link to "Re^12: Perl XS binding to a struct with an array of chars*". I looked in RAT to get an idea of the activity in this thread: there were a number at "Re^9" but nothing deeper. I went to the Page Settings (bottom of the RAT page) to change the maximum depth but the selection only provides 0-10.

Scrolling through (the very long) "Perl XS binding to a struct with an array of chars*", I found a couple at "Re^10" as well as the "Re^12" (from Best Nodes). So, I haven't lost access to any content; however, it would've been preferable to get a high-level view via RAT.

Can that "maximum depth" selection be extended? I don't know if there are other factors involved, so I don't know what to suggest beyond arbitrary ranges such as 0-20 or 0-99. Alternatively, could there be a "no depth limit" checkbox? I imagine a text entry box would be another option, but I suspect that might require a fair bit of validation and other work which pmdev's may not want to undertake (although, I'm very much guessing about that).

    Hi Ken

    I can't comment on the rational behind this limit, but

    > Scrolling through (the very long)

    As a tip: you don't need that, those nodes are still in RAT - well depending on the ancestor settings° - you just have to expand the folded parents.

    I can only see one˛ Re^9 with an +/- to the right, after 3 unfold-clicks I saw the Re^12 in question.

    °) my view settings show:

    Current View Mode is Node Ancestors, switch to Root and Node , Minimal Nodes or Full Thread .

    ˛) OK after switching to Full Thread I saw 2 folded Re^9 but still...

      G'day Rolf,

      My settings (top of RAT page):

      Current View Mode is Full Thread, switch to Root and Node, Minimal Nod +es or Node Ancestors

      There's been some activity between posting this morning ... long work day ... logging back in this evening.

      Now: 5 "Re^9" entries; 2 have "+/-"; 1st "+/-" gave "Re^10"; 2nd "+/-" gave all "Re^10" to "Re^13" with one click.

      That's still fiddly when a quick top-level view is wanted; however, and with reference to your "second reply", setting "maximum depth" to zero gave a full hierarchy of all nodes in all threads: I'll stick with that as it seems to do what I want. Thanks.

      — Ken
