I've been thinking again about the way the site is organised and how we navigate round it. This is almost an extension of the node I wrote about update times but not quite.

Here's what I want:

  • This concerns the newest nodes page. I would like, as an option, to get a page that had the fully expanded text of all the newest nodes, rather then a series of links to them. (I don't want new monks included in this).

    This would mean that one could load all of the newest nodes and browse them without excessive clicking back and forth.

    Note: I'm not suggesting replacing the current newest nodes section. I think that if this was to be implemented, it should also be possible to get a listing in the current format. Then those who want to continue with the current format would be free to do so.


  • I would also like to have each node contain a link to the "root" of the discussion that it is a part of. Then if one wanted to see the node in context, a simple click would load the entire discussion to that point. It would be nice if the node you came from was highlighted in a different colour - to make it stand out.

I suppose these are really separate, but implementing them both would make the site much easier to navigate.


Baldrick, you wouldn't see a subtle plan if it painted itself purple and danced naked on top of a harpsichord, singing "Subtle plans are here again!"

In reply to New format for Newest Nodes by nuance

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
