Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Handling large numbers of users

Posted by Vadim Makarov on
I'd like to see this type of ui used more in openacs

I just want to voice my vote for moderation here. For people on fast connections, it is often more convenient to have the whole list downloaded and then scroll or local search to the desired item, than to jump through extra forms/pages/links every time just to get to the thing.

The way the content is split on most sites nowadays, makes me think the whole purpose is to show more banners, not make user's life easier. Oh yes, if their designer can't figure how to make a page which is not one big <table>, then it's about the only remedy to show ten posts per page. Don't copy them blindly please.
