Another call for volunteers...
As Greg pointed out on his excellent SearchIdeas page:
...it would be nice to present the result in batches similar to Google.
His notes are under "Paging". This is a nice, bite-sized chunk of
work for a ZPT person.
Paged batches for search results.
As noted on SearchIdeas, present batches of results as pages of results,
1. Continue making the search pages look as much like a familiar
facility as possible.
2. Allow the user to quickly navigate between one of several batches.
This should be a straightforward use of ZPT batches, although it is
likely to take a bit of thought. The Advanced ZPT chapter of the Zope
Book (http://www.zope.org/Documentation/ZopeBook/AdvZPT.stx) has a
section devoted to batching. Look near the end for "Batching Large Sets
I'm sure the zpt list is willing to help on this. In fact, I'll wager
that someone has already done something like this. In my book, you get
extra credit for stealing the answer from someone else. :^)
