Re: New hints.... (launching super search on the posts title)

in reply to New hints....

just my .02

When one wants to post to SOPW wouldn't it be possible that when he hits the preview button to start a (super) search on the chosen title of his post and to return the top ten most relevant matches from former posts to SOPW entitled as: "Have you had a look at these previos Questions/ Threads?" on top of the preview page.

But those results shall only be root nodes and not replies as it happens to be when you actually do a search.

In this case one could still hold finishing his post while examining those results and in case cancel his post or proceed if he didn't find an answer.


Have a nice day
All decision is left to your taste

    Big ++ to demerphq!! I hope it gets approved!

    I would also like to give a thumbs up to little's idea. I remember a time when I used to have no idea that I should search before I post.
