Calling the GardenClickers Techie Geeks…..
Dandlyon asked me a very pertinent question yesterday – which was, “Is there some way we could have an easy way to find tips easily, and some of the really valuable stuff that has been lodged on our site, by people who really know what they are talking about.”
Tony had wanted to refer someone to mickyp’s composting DVD, but could not find it, or a link to it. When I saw this, I tried the Search Box which has been sitting at the top of the page since Day 1 – but it doesn’t seem to go anywhere at all.
I think what we are really asking is for some sort of reference system, whereby items worth keeping are tagged by captions which can be recalled through an alphabetical system. I am no nerd, and it may be that this represents hundreds of coding hours – but it may also be possible to buy an add-on which would enable us to do this.
I know Gibbon and Owdboggy have been doing their best to use the Chat facility, but it seems to me that it is not much used by our membership. Is it a possibility that our treasures could be lodged here in a retrievable fashion? I don’t know what others think of this idea, so please make your opinions known.
Is an alphabetical reference system a possibility? What would it entail? Are there any additional costs? What would be the best way to do it?
