    Default Added a Similar Threads block

    Just an fyi - there is now a "Similar Threads" block at bottom of each thread.


    Also I forgot to publicly thank Starlite for her cool self-made Smilies donated to the forum.


    Thank you Starlite

    Maybe a stupid question but how does the Similar thread block work? I can see the box with similar threads below the thread but I don't understand how to use it. I think it's a good idea though

    So nice of you to donate the smileys, Stalite

    Yes - it is a pretty basic system

    It uses whatever the title of the current thread is and does a quick search for matching titles
    Since this thread title has the word "block" in it
    the search found - "new kid on the block" and "sunblock"
    - not the best matches but give it a C for effort

    So it is best to always use a good subject title rather than a generic "I need help" title
