Empty Rooms

About: tagindex now shows correctly in group rooms and group tag rooms

In the process of testing out 2145 I ran into an empty tagroom.  This happens a lot & is confusing, particularly in this test because I don't know whether there is a bug or what is going on. I started out with the tag "elaine" in the common River & subsequently selected "childhood" from the tagroom list on the left & ran into an empty room.  Now naturally I wondered why a list of all tags on all items in the room would end up empty! (I know that it is because the item is private, but that doesn't help me much).  I'm sure it will confuse the hell out of a newbie if we ever get one.

Subsequently I tried to find an item as a bug or a wish that wants the group name on a private item and at least gives a nice "The item you are looking for is marked private & is in group xyz" or something like that. At least I could then sign on to that group.  I don't think the should wait until we have global authors etc to fix this one. I am a member of maybe a dozen groups, & while I know their passwords, I don't want to have to sign onto each one in sequence to find an item marked private (possibly by myself).

Incidently if you know where this $wish has previously been documented I would really like to know how it was tagged.

well now this item is it ... $wish,private items. What i will do is to show the existence of private items when they appear in rooms ... no data, not even the title, just the group name, author, date, and permalink. Some people are going to complain, so maybe that should be a domain option.

Seth says
... maybe we should not show the author, just item, date, and group ?

Mark de LA says
yep, the only thing I need is the group, usually I know enough of the rest from the link.
