( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
After doing a search and super search on replies on the User Search page, I decided to venture forward, at least knowing that if this topic has been suggested before, it's not readily apparent to me.

I noticed a bunch of requests for number of replies to Newest Nodes. I want to state that for the record, I don't tend to need that, but if you do, good for you. What I want is a feature that lets me see how many reply branches are extending from a node if I go to the Perl Monks User Search page and type in footpad. Then I get to see that 2 replies have been made to his latest node. This gets useful when you consider that the best way to keep track of all your postings is to hit the writeups link and, voila, there's a list of your nodes, their rep, and, if fate guides the hand of vroom in this direction, the number of replies shooting off of it.

Like I said, I probably wouldn't use the number of replies on Newest Nodes as I generally browse it for top level nodes anyway. But I do generally use the user search to find specific writeups where I want to know if more activity has been generated.


In reply to Places where number of replies would be nice. by PsychoSpunk

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
  • You may need to use entities for some characters, as follows. (Exception: Within code tags, you can put the characters literally.)
            For:     Use:
    & &amp;
    < &lt;
    > &gt;
    [ &#91;
