( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've noticed that in OBFU and CUFP, the "Next entries-->" link is at the bottom. With all the posts that are entered, there may be only a days worth on the first page. I like to scan through the posts of past weeks and even past years to get ideas and to learn things that I would never have thought about unless it was shown to me i.e. in a posted node. This brings me to my point, can we put a "Next entries-->" link at the top of the page in the sections?

I can think of two arguments against this, and I have posted my rebuttle along with them:

  • Why not use search?
    • As I mentioned in the main paragraph, I like to find and learn things that I wouldn't think of and that makes it difficult to think of search terms.
  • If you're scanning through the posts, don't you get to the end of the page anyway?
    • Yes, that is initially true. But, what if you want to go back to the place you left off with? You have to scroll to the bottom, click Next entries, and then either repeat this process or alter the URL to substitute in your last page number.

Cheers!

Title:
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.
