Possible Bug: next and prior arrows are backwards.

I realize that they are like that because they are labeled “earlier” and “later”. But that is unique to FBI and confusing. Everywhere else you go on the web you press the right hand one for the next set, and the left hand one for the prior set. It doesn’t matter which time frame or any other way the set is ordered in. It’s just “more of these” and “back” … and that makes good sense here too.

It would take you some time to get used to I am sure, but if they are set to standard newbies will love you for the ease of it!

This is fixed. Arrows now work on all room types. (that’s room types, not news clearly). And they always go the same direction instead of mixed depending on what page you are on. Next is right. Back is left.

Arrows are also standardized with queries and won’t show goofy blank rooms.

In another phase, could improve the queries to skip missing items, especially in the item room.

i liked the old message, “item does not exist”, otherwise a person ends up on a blank screen with a WTF feeling.  

i even likey saying, “item is private to group xxxx”,  that is upeful somtiems to when a administrator is troule shooting.

Yes. That’s great for debugging. It could be turned on for debugging. You could even have a group with private pages that allowed all kinds of features like that … set your cookie with them. 

But for the end user it is annoying to be shown things you can’t go to and just invites hacking if anything.

I agree about totally blank pages, if they are possible then it should show item deleted.

well ok on the private items.  

but if a browser ends on a item which does not exist, they should not just get a blank screen.

I think that’s exactly what I said there in the last line of my comment.

and you also have the same problem with a private item … you cannot show a blank screen … you must show something.
