[ACP - Manage bots] - [pagination & search-box]

Post by lol »

i think its a good idea to put pagination and search-box on [ACP - Manage bots].
i have a long list of bots and it takes time to load.
and for adding a bot, i have to go all the way down the long list.

I can agree with the idea of pagination but not sure what use searching would be. May be being able to order by bot name would be a better option

when we put a pagination, how can we find a bot and edit it? with a lot of bots we have to check all the pagination one by one to find that bot to edit. but with a search-box, we easily could search that bot and find it and edit it.

How often do you edit a bot? - I cannot recall the last time I edited one, if ever

Your right but its not only for editing the bots. Sometimes you're not sure that you have added a bot or not. That's why you need a search-box to search that bot to see if its already added or not.

And that is why I suggested that there was the ability to order the list by bot name. Search is all well and good as long as you know exactly what you are looking for.

Imagine you have hundreds of bots, even though it is not usual it can happen. The search makes it much easier.

Order the list by bot name is not a good idea i think. Sometimes there is a lot of bots with the same alphabetical order. And causes the same problem.
Pagination is good i think. And only search system will match with pagination. With ability to find the bot with partial search. Then you don't have to search the bot with full name. Searching the part of the bot will list and show all the bots containing that word.
