Suggestion: Remove "Delete All" button

Postby Dork » Tue Sep 14, 2004 10:16 am

Right now in the private message area, the "Delete" and "Delete All" buttons look very much the same and it might be easy for someone to select a couple of messages then click delete all and find that ALL of their messages are suddenly gone instead of the two intended ones. Not that I would be dumb enough to do such a thing myself, but someone less observant could. Since there's no trash can something like that could be really permanent.

I don't think the button is really necessary since it's easy enough to "Mark All" then "Delete".

Sorry...

Meant to say that this may not be worth bringing up as a sep topic but was thinking that....

Given the sheer number of posts - especially post-event - it'd be nice tolog out without having all unread topics be erased (or marked as read). It'd be great to come back and log on and be able to continue where you left off rather than scroll back a few pages.

I don't disagree with either suggestion, unfortunately we are without an available php hacker and the tool itself cannot be altered through the admin interface.

Know anyone with some php foo and time on their hands?

I haven't used php yet but I've been waiting for an excuse to learn it. The syntax looks pretty simple.
