  • Feature:90165Open The magazine listings are getting a bloated look from the level of detail we are now including. I would like to ask for several features to make the listings more visually presentable. First; the indentation of "interior art" records, as is being done with book reviews. This would make the format of the interior consistent with the reviews, as both are subordinate to the story/article. Second; make all indented entries appear after unindented entries having the same page number. This would take care of the reviews appearing before the book review column, and illustrations if the first feature is implemented. Finally, adding a button to toggle the default setting between "Full" and "Concise" listing, and placing it in a more prominent location, such as next to the "Content" header of the listing.--Rkihara 17:53, 22 October 2008 (UTC
Example of a detailed magazine listing, which the first two requested features would make much more readable.--Rkihara 16:44, 23 October 2008 (UTC)
I'm not sure what you want the "Concise" format to do - would it remove all of the indented items? -Marc Kupper|talk 04:08, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
There is an existing "concise listing format" look for the link on the left. I don't think any change to its behavior is being suggested, just a more obvious interface for it, adn that it persist across multiple record displays. -DES Talk 04:30, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Currently it seems to hide all interior art and all reveiws. I'm not sure about interviews. It appears to leave all fiction and essays displayed. -DES Talk 04:33, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
Thanks - Rkihara is right then in that it needs to be in a more prominent place. :-) I'm sure I've tried the concise listing mode before but as I usually don't work on magazines I've never needed a view that stripped out interiorart. -Marc Kupper|talk 06:53, 29 October 2008 (UTC)
