Easier Access to Bookmarked Topics in WSL

#1

Post by SirEdric »

So, let's try this as an idea...:-)
It would be cool to have faster access to bookmarked topics.
Maybe as an extra option in the 'Forum' dropdown.
That link could open an overview of bookmarked topics similar to the one we find in the user control panel.
(But without the extra clicks of actually opening the UCP)
A button 'manage bookmarks' in that overview could then take one to the UCP to do exactly that.

Would a direct link to the page in the UCP do? Or are you wanting something specific like the unread posts page?

One is simple, the other not quite as :)

The direct link would do just fine for sure.
The 'unread posts' variant would be the Mercedes of UX...:-)

Well, let's see if we can get you your Lada first, and I'll investigate what it would take to get the Mercedes... :)

OK so the Lada is not a problem and I'll take care of that - I think it's a good idea.

Marking as In Progress

The prospect of being able to build your own private knowledge base on WSL that way, and have it available almost like a proper forum, is pretty attractive... so I've done some research and talked to developers.

The Mercedes is possible, but rather expensive (well, it's a Mercedes). I'm a little hesitant to commit to this right away, especially since there are some other immenent challenges to be tackled (perhaps more on that later).

In short, frankly I'd like to see a handful more Patrons to help cover such an expense, but I will sleep on it :)
