New added-value information feature added to the site
« on: November 26, 2010, 09:58:48 am »
If you see a name or word in any forum thread that you want to know more about, just highlight it and click on the box that appears saying 'Learn More' and you will be offered loads of interesting information.

To test it, just highlight the following name - Brookmans Park - and see what happens.

Yes, it means that when one of our more verbose correspondents is off on one we can check what they are on about without leaving the site.

LOL!!  I just highlighted Crikey from your post and see it's an Australian magazine!!

I think this is going to be an interesting feature from now on - especially with some of the unusual spellings we see from time to time! ;)

To quote Henry Gibson of Rowan and Martin's Laugh In - that dates me! (for those too young to remember it was an American comedy show running between 1967 and 1973)  Veery Interesteeng!

I only put this feature on the site a few days ago and the first data is in about its success.  

For those who missed it, you can now highlight any word on the site to reveal instant added-value information.

In the few days it's been active people have spent 3.1x longer on the site searching 150+ words or phrases.

Try it with any word, it's fun.

Great to see this feature being used by so many people. Just had the latest stats in and it's being well used.

A reminder to those who missed it, you can now highlight any word on the site to reveal loads of added-value info. Try it and see. Great fun.

Hi Alex, good spot.  That will be due to the upgrade. Will put the code back. Thanks for the feedback.
