Added "Similar topics" to forum

Unread post by Saul » Mon Apr 15, 2019 3:59 pm

I have added a new feature to the forum called "Similar Topics" and as the name suggests it will show a list of similar/related topics at the bottom of each thread.

Hopefully this will make it easier for site users to find the info they need and save people searching through the forum. It won't always throw up threads related exactly to the topic but mostly they should be similar.

I’m on another forum that also has this feature turned on. My only (cautionary?) comment is that it seems to make it easy for people to necro-post because some of the similar topics might be really old and they might not be paying attention to the fact that they’re replying to a 10-year old post! Not that necro-posting bothers me in the slightest (it doesn’t), but it seems like there are always people who can’t resist making snarky remarks whenever they see someone else necro-posting.

Well there will be no sneaky or snide remarks on this forum Peter. Doesn't matter if a thread is 5 weeks or 5 years old. There are NO dead posts on this forum. Everything is useful in one way or another and reviving old threads is just fine with me.
