Problems with Newest Nodes

by roho (Chancellor)
on Jun 14, 2021 at 13:19 UTC ( #11133844=monkdiscuss: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I cleared "last checked time" in "Newest Nodes" and now it only shows questions for the last 24 hours. I went to "Newest Node Settings" to change "last checked time", but found no setting for it.

How do I get "Newest Nodes" to permanently show more than the last 24 hours of questions again (i.e., get back to the way it was before I cleared "last checked time")?

    You can't - once you've cleared the "last here" time, it resets to showing you the last 24 hours worth of nodes.

      Hmmm - somehow that doesn't seem quite right - what is the procedure to request a change to PerlMonks to allow this to be changed back? I feel like Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole.

        what is the procedure to request a change to PerlMonks

        Technically, your first step would be to come up with a use case and discuss it in the Chatterbox and possibly here in PM Discussions.

        If your case has good arguments and other monks mostly agree that this would be a good thing to change, a PmDev has to decide if your request is technically possible (the PM backend is quite different than your average this-is-my-dog-forum).

        After that, your request will probably land on the Todo list, until someone implements it or not.

        I'm the most junior PmDev, only got promoted last week and i'm still reading the docs and the code. From what i could glean in a quick code search, it should be possible to implement a one level "undo" function. I'd be willing to invest the time since i had the same problem before (and this seems to be a good first project). But before i do anything, i'll have to check with my mentor.

        perl -e 'use Crypt::Digest::SHA256 qw[sha256_hex]; print substr(sha256_hex("the Answer To Life, The Universe And Everything"), 6, 2), "\n";'

    In our ongoing series

      "How to hack the monastery"

    For permanent retrospection, try bookmarking this for 10 days backwards

    https://perlmonks.org/?node_id=3628&numdays=10


    As alternative

    add [href://?node_id=3628&numdays=10] to your Personal Nodelet Settings (if activated in Nodelet Settings) ...

    ... this will always keep you logged in! :)


    NB:

    • Choose your preferred web-address to keep you logged in.

    Did you see

      Show nodes created within the past [n] days [SUBMIT]

    on top?

    edit

    Though it doesn't seem to be "permanent".

      You are correct - it is not permanent - rather frustrating when one click forever changes an option that cannot be changed back.

      "It's not how hard you work, it's how much you get done."

        > one click forever changes an option that cannot be changed back.

        I suppose a revert is only possible if the last check date was saved instead of being overwritten.

        Once the data is lost ...🤷🏾

        But if the links I gave you° are not handy enough, I could also provide you with a form dialog to build that link.
