idea for sorting items on blacksmith page (in General)

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 4 2009 8:20 AM EDT

i am not sure if others would find this helpful, but i wanted to throw it out there just in case!

i have upgraded my corns and uc gear to certain level and am now just putting money into the cheapest ac items as i have enough. it would be very helpful to have a sort by upgrade cost button on the blacksmiths page.

i also suspect that others may have ideas on some other sort criteria that might help them out as well, so please feel free to add those here as well.

since we already have tabs there, perhaps it could be integrated as another tab if the idea is used.

hmm, i guess i am the only one that wants sorting on the blacksmith page?

I kinda like it as it is now.

Based upon the minion using it.

Admindudemus [jabberwocky] May 4 2009 1:06 PM EDT

yeah, i certainly didn't mean replacing it, just adding another tab that would filter/sort it differently when clicked on. much like showing all minions or a single one in the equipment page and such.

I would find that button useful, particularly now that I'll be using a wall gear set.

If it is an option that does not replace the current method, sure.

This is the kind of thing that would be better done in an external user script a la Verifex's greasemonkey script.

in this post i thought jon disallowed those:

if i understood his posts correctly that is!

AdminNightStrike May 4 2009 2:56 PM EDT

Hmm.. I didn't see that post the first time around. I guess it's one of those don't ask don't tell things :)

I think I remember Jon saying that due to the bugs it was causing when he was switching to the new style of CB.

I never got a firm handle on whether outside scripts were banned forever or just for that time while Jon fixed the bugs.

AdminNightStrike May 4 2009 2:59 PM EDT

It's probably along the lines of "If you use outside scripts, don't report bugs". A lot of people would experience site issues due to fex's script, and report them as CB issues.

i thought i actually remembered him blocking scripts but do not know enough to assure that is even possible. is anyone still using it and if so, does it still work?

Someone just fixed it recently, there was a post about it. For some reason the name doesn't pop in my head right now.
