    Default Questions and Comments on our Catalogs

    Just wanted to let you guys know I have finished creating articles (threads) for the catalog forum and wikified it.

    I am going to try all kinds of advanced functions that come with the product like "table of contents" and stuff like that. Perhaps be able to divide the books out by state for that.

    (Hardcover, First Editions..and so on)

    I welcome any comments here of course but this thing is very much a work in progress.

    I want to once again thank Jerome and all the other collectors that have contributed to this. Making the threads was amazing because I got to see and read about every one.

    That is excellent Matt. I just checked it out. What is the [Top] Something else text next to King's graphic?

    Its me trying to do a table of contents, I seem to be getting closer now

    My goal is to not only have the titles below but a Table of Contents divided by state.

    Not to be picky-but I am. Should the Table of Contents not use THE when being alphabetized IE The Colorado Kid goes under "C" not "T"?
    Or am I just screwed up.

    I wondered about that all the way through man, not sure what to do with it. "the" is a part of the title and I hated to put it at the end.

    like...Colorado Kid, The

    That may have been better, they can be systematically changed though

    I don't know if you can do it, but leave the "The" at the beginning of the title, but put the book where it would go if the "The" wasn't there.
    The Colorado Kid would follow Christine and preceed Creepshow.
    Also "Salem's Lot would go under "S".

    that cannot be done, the program automatically alphabetizes by article (thread) title.

    Its a very strict code.

    Then the The's go where they are. No big deal. The results are excellent.

    Thanks man, we can maybe play around a bit with the titles to organize them better, I think most folks kind of assume "the" so it may not need to be there at all. And I had no idea 'Salem's Lot had that thing on the front

    Right now I am organizing them into "books" by state--you can have a look at that here. http://www.thedarktower.org/palaver/nuwiki.php?do=book

    It will just be another way to cross reference them

    Did you want to go through and try to change them? I'd be happy to throw it open for that.

    Okay folks, this thing is done for how.

    Not only do we have an entry for each but they are also grouped into "books" by state which generates a table of context for each at the bottom of the page.

    Looks like some of the tables of contents do not include all the entries.



    It's a known bug and I am working to get it solved.

    I was just checking it out, Matt. Very cool. Great job!

    Will people need to sign up for TDT.com's free membership in order to view it? Or will it be available to anyone who wants to use the site without ever even joining up?

    Perhaps I'm missing it, but in reviewing the catalog I've seen all the versions of The Talisman except this gift edition (similar to the S/L, but different):

    I would love to have a new entry that isn't there Patrick. We'll let Jerome tell us for sure, I may have missed named one somehow.

    And any visitor to the site can see the entire forums, just not post without signing up.

    Got it covered, I'll slap those on here in a sec.

    I changed the format for the "book index" page from the table of contents to an alphabetical listing. See what you guys think.

    It all looks great, Matt!


    By the way, my vote is to make membership with a minimum post count of "1" to see the Catalog. But I'm just trying to drum up numbers so you get a truer sense of how many people are using the site.

    Oh hey, the book entry titled 'Salem's Lot-Trade Hardback First Edition is actually the Illustrated edition that came out years later.

    Also a typo on the introduction page to the Catalog: You may also browse our Catalog using out Edition State Book Directory
