Yet more! An enhancement to make things even easier on us adding stuff in (no, I'm not being lazy, I'm just thinking of ways to make it better for all of us to contribute here and get this database built!).
add2item - when typing in the name of the item, it requires that you type in the name from the beginning. This is also true for the big search box up in the upper right of the screen. In order for it to populate a drop down list, you have to have the start of the item in the search field. I'm fairly used to wowhead, where if I was looking for all the metal bars, I could type in "bar" and it'd drop down or populate with everything with bar in the name, not just things that start with "bar."
Would love this functionality in the add2item part. A for instance -
Adding the grinding stones to the npc's that sell them. Currently, have to go in and type "Coarse Gri" "Fine Gri" "Superior Gri" and "Premium Gri" into the field and select the items that way.
If the search was not so specific, I could type in "Grinding", it'd populate the selection list with all 4 stones, and I could very quickly choose each one to add.
I hope this makes sense! In the grand scheme, this is a low-priority type enhancement. Would make things a bit easier, but also going forward for the general search function, would be nice not to have to be so specific in order to get a drop down box with what you are looking for. Sure, hitting enter on the search will give all results, but a selectable from dropdown (ala wowhead) would be just awesome.
Thanks again! I'll keep plugging away at vendors!
