[Survey Discussion] Article Category Icons & Features
« on: November 06, 2015, 11:14:48 AM »
Dear Members:

In the "Article Category Icons & Features Survey Topic" we asked you to let us know what you like about TinyPortal Articles Categories and how you use them.
We hope that you filled out the survey questions and would love to hear any other comments or questions you have on the TP articles categories.

I'll go ahead and start with my favorite part about the TP articles categories:
If you use very many TP articles you'll find after a while that things can become rather cluttered in your TP articles admin screen. Your article category system will solve that issue by giving you the ability create as many categories as needed to sort your articles into neat groups.

Now it's your turn, so post away.  O0

I agree. I'm a very organized person with a lot of articles on my sites. Category grouping helps me a lot with my site and the many other sites I help.

Reading can seriously damage your ignorance!

Another part that I like is the Article Categories control panel, it's clean, simple and gives you a great jumping off place to find and edit an Article, or start a new one.  O0

one thing i think is missing is a clear edit option on that page. not everyone knows or can easily find how to edit the categories listed on the page.

Looking at this and you are right. The 'spy glass' icon is generally understood to be an edit symbol, but a novice user might not be able to readily understand how to navigate here.

The editing is done by clicking the name, I think? Unless I forgotten lol..but yeah, those were created a lot of years ago, almsot one of the first things I did in TP. It should been improved since, but wasn't.

This just made me realize that the magnifying glass icon does not have a tool tip saying "Preview" like the other 3. And, yes, editing is done by clicking on the cat name.

Tool tips are one of the elements that we need to more fully develop as we work on improving TP.
