remembering settings

Postby marce_sgForum » Sat Aug 22, 2009 8:01 pm

Hi!

Each time I review my addresses status, I sort the addresses by "remaining". Then I modify some address (increasing the "remaining" count), and again I have to sort by "remaining". I would appreciate very much if such setting could be remembered... Would that be possible?

Thanks!

I would be pretty easily do-able with a new persistent cookie, but I have a philosophical objection to persistent cookies, and they don't travel to other computers. To save it on the server, we'd need a database change, I think -- we could do it with the prime number hashing system we use for other features, but I think we'd be retiring one prime number per sort-able column, which is kind of awkward.

I'll keep thinking about it.

Thanks for thinking about this problem and replying.

The problem I described would be even solved with session cookies. Permanent cookies would be even better (regarding this problem), and saving data in the server ideal (but I have no idea about implementation difficulty or implementation time required).

Thanks again.

Hi Josh,

I wonder if you decided what would be best regarding cookies...

Thanks!
