Subject [jira] [Commented] (ROL-1982) Tree View for Archives
Date Mon, 30 Dec 2013 10:34:50 GMT


Glen Mazza commented on ROL-1982:

If you can focus on ROL-1981 first (at least getting us to the flat table), that would be
great for the team, it might take me several days to review all the changes before I can commit
it, giving you all the time you'd like to enhance ROL-1982.

If someone has 100's of blog entries that could be quite a resource hog for a blog server
that might need to manage many blogs, I might be inclined to lift it to about 200-300 or so
(whatever the team thinks), that would take care of most users while not burdening the Roller
server due to chatty bloggers who just blog one-sentence daily blogs about winning lottery
numbers, their running times, or their weight each day.  Even at my bloggiest before deleting
many old blog articles, I reached 267 blog articles before moving back to a more manageable
100-150 articles.

Another issue is that even if we allowed loading of several hundred or thousand blog articles,
the page load response time would be so long that the blogger may not want that anyway.  For
example, former Roller user (while he was at Oracle) Arun Gupta not only had 1400 blog entries
(, he easily had 1000's of blog readers
each day, not just those wanting to read his blog directly but Googlers taken to his many
articles.  If we had to dynamically generate that huge tree view for each of his readers that
would be quite a resource demand on the Roller server, risking out-of-memory errors (then
again, servlet containers do some caching so maybe that's less of a concern.)

I think archive tree views are most useful for technical evangelists who need to show their
bosses (who may not really care about or understand the blog contents) that they're blogging
lots and lots for their company, so, yes, displaying number counts would be very good.

this macro can be easily added to the Side menu of the blog.
