Is it possible to have a preference pane where a user in these forums could optionally check to auto populate the discussion title and body with the search parameters that get them to an automatically created blank discussion post as a landing page when there are no results from a given search?
the title could pull out the first 10 words, or as many characters as fit before 3 periods in that title field. The body could house the rest, and the user would also get the option to edit prior to submitting.
When creating a new discussion; it would save a lot of time if when the auto redirect occurs after you search and nothing is found; the search was brought to this window.
When you are doing a lot of searching it can kind of throw you the user (me) off in a dis-jointed way to arrive at a blank landing page.
Suppose the phone rings or a dog barks and I forget (since I'm usually juggling a few tasks) what it was I searched for...
I had some other reason to search or start a discussion and will remember in a moment; but for now all I could think about was this since I've felt this way numerous times after a search.
Like, whoa, what just happened? And what was I searching?
Please excuse the loose narrative. Have a great day!
