Newest Nodes length limit

by jagh (Monk)
on Dec 20, 2008 at 07:24 UTC ( #731728=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

After being mostly (ok, entirely) inactive since around January, I checked Newest Nodes and received a(n extremely) long list of 'New' nodes since my last checked flag from ~2008-01-18. While it's certainly an edge case (and easily dealt with, at that), perhaps it would be worth the effort to only display a few of the more recent nodes if it looks like the returned list is going to be very (very) long. The rest could be displayed if that is truly the user's intent. Or these flags could be cleared after some time (probably suboptimal), or something else, or nothing at all..

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    That's the penalty for not participating for so long. :-)

    You can clear the flag by going to Newest Nodes Settings, but if you click on "Recent Threads" first, then it's too late.

    There were already limits but I added another limit and made one of the previous limits consistent with the new limit. Now you can't get more than 60 days of nodes whether specifying "number of days" or "since this point in time". It is still the case that asking for more than 7 days of nodes means that the list of notes (replies) is omitted.
