Library Idea

Recommended Posts

My idea is the following-It would be nice to be able to search for repaints by searching for and selecting the original aircraft and then clicking a "see available repaints" button.This can sort of be done now, but this would be a more direct link as many authors neglect to include the original file name or author, making searching more difficult. If they could search for it and click on it when uploading, I think it would make the process easier.I think this could be achieved by adding a few more lines in the upload process. It wouldn't be easy to go back and change those already in the library though.Thanks for considering.

The search engine is very powerful as it is. And wit the use of wild cards you can really help narrow down the search. The trick is to know where to put the wild cards. Granted it can sometimes bring up a lot of results that are not what you are looking for sometimes. You just have to be creative with the wild cards.But your idea is not bad though, but like you said to many files to change, and then either the author or a library manager would have to add the extra code to each upload and that is a little more than we want for now. I believe in the K.I.S.S method(KEEP IT SIMPLE STUPID) Regards !Gary Buska Library Manager Forum Moderator
