Hi

On every LDDB listings page, there is a choice of
  • Highlight titles available in shops
  • Highlight titles in your collection
  • Highlight titles in your wishlist
  • Highlight titles in all collections
  • Highlight titles with a cover picture

What would be really nice is if all that information (using the little symbols) could be displayed always.
Or, failing that, could (... in your collection) be the default?

Cheers!

It's something I already had to consider when writing the underlying code...

That would put too much stress on the database, making 5 parallel JOIN queries, for EACH search display.
I had to trim it down to one query at a time.

That only works if you are a registered user with a collection, but a lot of visitors are guests with no account.
That's why the default view is "available in shops" because this one works for everyone.

Sorry to return to this, but if a listing is on multiple pages, then going from page 1 to page 2 resets the selection to the default.

If the user selects "In your collection" (for example) on Page 1, could that choice not be carried over so that the page 2 results show "In your collection", rather than the default?
