in thread Looking for "Nodes You Wrote" [A Beginners Inquiry]

First, thank you everyone for your input on the issue.

tye, is "go=search" causing system issues? Is this why you are canning that particular option? I'm not sure I understand your premise for this. Are we experiencing problems now a days from too many people doing this?

I only ask because as I see it today, (tomorrow I might be smarter) it is incredibly convenient to have a link that can do something I plan on doing somewhat frequently. Would you consider adding a "My Top Level Nodes I Wrote" link in the "Find Nodes" sidebar? My premise for this is a cleaner result screen when I search for the nodes I created, rather than seeing not only the nodes I started, but each and every response also. I am aiming to create a result in a more timely fashion with as few a site interactions as possible. Some days, being new at this, the site seems so far above my head when I am trying to find simple assistance, and I am trying to find processes that will make it a bit simpler for folk in my same shoes today. And possibly, having this option on the sidebar, can eliminate some overhead so others don't duplicate this option in their home nodes.

Again, thanks everyone for your time on this issue. Regards, - Bruce

    The feature to make it easy to build links to Super Search has only existed a very short time. I doubt it is being used much at all at so far. What was unclear about what I said: "I foresee too much potential for problems from willy nilly links kicking off super searches every time that anyone clicks them" ? I'm a bit baffled how you could read that and ask your above question.

    And I wrote "and yet I'd like for people to be able to easily set up links for their own use that skip loading the Super Search page". I also outlined several ways to do what you asked without even using go=Search, though not quite as conveniently. So, if you are going to do this one thing often, then I don't see a big problem with you taking a few minutes and making a button in your Free Nodelet that does that for you without using go=Search in a URL and so will always work.
