in reply to Getting Complete Listing Of [Super Search] Results

I also have seen a need for this. And as long as we're in the "if you don't ask, you never get" mode, along with the individual check boxes, I'd like to see a "check all" and a "clear all" pair of buttons.

If that is feasable, could it be included on the newest nodes page, also? There are times when I don't have time to go through all of the newest nodes and they start to pile up. If I could check off the ones I'd read, there would be a shorter list for next time.

(so many nodes and so little time ... )

    Theo, theres a checkbox at the bottom of Newest Nodes which says "I've read all these" (or similar), maybe you overlooked it? As soon as you hit that once, however, NN will always show you all nodes since you last used it, instead of just the nodes for the last day, which it defaults to otherwise. If you'd like to turn it off again, theres a "Clear newest nodes flag" (or something), on user settings.

    C.

      Thank you, castaway. I use that button every day that I finish all of the NN. It's just that some days I get behind and it takes several days to catch up during which I can't hit that button or I'll lose the nodes I haven't seen yet.

        It's just that some days I get behind and it takes several days to catch up during which I can't hit that button or I'll lose the nodes I haven't seen yet.

        Even if you don't look at the site for a few days, the nodes you haven't seen aren't lost for ever: there's an input on Newest Nodes to set how many days back you want to list the nodes. (It's however limited to max 8 or 14 days I don't know which one.)

        Update: I see that it's also skipping the list of notes if you're querying more than a few days.

[haukex]: I figured that POD tests make sense, but only as author tests
[choroba]: I mean, the slides are, but not the makefile with scripts to create them
[Corion]: haukex: I've only now arrived at that revelation ;)
[Corion]: choroba: I use spod5, which also has that support, and also implements its own kinda-make stuff
[haukex]: But that module I just linked to assumes that most verbatim blocks are runnable code, I have other modules where that's not the case, so there I just copy-and-paste the synopsis into the author tests...
[haukex]: not the most efficient, but then again, I don't have that many modules on CPAN :-)
[Corion]: haukex: Yes, but if it's only supposed to run on my machine, I can be far more liberal with how I extract the code etc.
[Corion]: haukex: Yes - I see the benefit of using Dist::Zilla for people with 150+ modules on CPAN, but I don't see it for myself, and I'm always put off from contributing to such modules because they require a lot of toolchain setup that I don't want to ...
[Corion]: ... spend time on if I only want to provide a short patch
[haukex]: Corion: Yes exactly, in the author tests I don't worry about portability as much, I also don't list the author tests' dependencies in Makefile.PL
