...but what about adding a “search” field on the main page so we could see if an eggcorn’s already been suggested for the database?
Just a thought, in the spirit of saving space.
Yeah, never mind.
Why, though, do the redirect links seem to “disappear” when I hover over them? It’s very late and I am tired.
You’re talking about adding to the forum page a search button that would search the whole site, right? I think that would be a good idea—I spend most of my time on the forum page, but when I do a search, I always use the second box on the Database page so I can see every relevant hit on the whole site. Sometimes I find myself resenting the extra two seconds that takes.
Chris has said before that she’d like to redo the whole “back end” of the site, so I doubt we’ll get many changes before she has a chance to remake things more fully.
I’m not sure I understand the question in the second post—I’m going to go hover over some redirect links right now.
Regarding the disappearing links: when I’m in the forum and I want to go back to see all the posts, I’ll move up to the “Forum Index” to click the link, and they all disappear. However, the link is still there; I can click it and still be redirected.
