Highlighted Search Terms
Saturday 5th September 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

On the Quotes and Search pages, your search terms are now highlighted in the list of results.
Highlighted Search Terms
This should make it easier to spot what you searched for.


Multiple character quotes
Saturday 29th August 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

It is now possible to add quotes from multiple characters. When submitting quotes from multiple characters, separate the names of the characters with a comma, for example, Jack,Locke. Searching for quotes by a specific character will also return quotes by multiple characters, if the character you're searching for is in that quote; for example, a quote by Jack and Locke will be found if you search for just Jack or Locke on their own.

Please contact me with any ideas or issues you have with the changes, using the feedback, report or contact pages.


Highlight centric quotes
Tuesday 28th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

A new feature has been added to the Quotes and Search page today; you can now choose to highlight quotes from centric episodes. For example, if there is a quote from Jack in one of his centric episodes, it will be highlighted.

Single quote view complete
Sunday 19th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

The single quote view is now complete. To view these pages, click the 'More' link from the quotes page or search results. Here, you will see the quote, the character, episode details, the number of times the quote has been loaded, and a link to post the quote to Twitter. If applicable, there will be a 'more quotes from this character' link that will give you a list of other quotes by the character of the main quote you are viewing, which you can click; if there are no other quotes by the character of the main quote you are viewing, this link will not be shown. Also, the name of the character is click-able; when you click it you will get the character's full name, a picture of them, their state, and their centric episodes; if the main quote you are viewing is from a centric episode of the character, the episode name will be bold in the list of centric episodes.

Advanced search page added
Sunday 19th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

The new advanced quote search feature has now been made available.

Advanced Quote Search

This differs from the search options on the normal quotes page as it gives you more control; you can choose multiple characters and episodes, whether a quote contains or starts with a certain string, and other options to help you find the quotes you want.

It's tagged as 'beta' currently as there are some issues that should be resolved soon.


Clickable table column headers on Quotes page
Monday 13th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

The column headers on the Quotes page are now click-able (click image to enlarge).
Clickable table column headers on Quotes page
If any of the first 5 headers are currently unordered, or are ordered in descending order, clicking the column header will order that column in ascending order, and if it is already ordered in ascending order, clicking it will order it in descending order. For the Twitter column, if quotes are being shown regardless of whether they can be posted to Twitter or not (i.e. all quotes), clicking the Twitter column header will show only quotes that can be posted to Twitter; if only quotes that can be posted to Twitter are being shown, clicking the column header will show all quotes.


A short guide to lost-quotes.com
Saturday 4th July 2009 --- Category: Site Information Site Information

Index
This is the homepage for the site, where you can see the random quote generator signature image, the code to add it to your site or forum signature, as well as counts of the number of quotes loaded and the number of quotes in the database. There is also a quote from the initial LOST advert shown in the UK.

Quotes
This is where you can see every single quote available in the database, that are shown on the random quote generator image. You can see the character, episode number, episode name, the quote itself, the number of times it has been loaded and, if the quote is short enough, a link to post the quote directly to Twitter.

There is also a basic search feature for the quotes page. You can choose to filter quotes by character or season, order them by character, episode number episode name, quote, or times loaded, in ascending or descending order. You can also choose to search for a particular word or phrase to narrow your search.

Submit
The submit page allows you to submit a quote to the database. Only the quote is required, however the character, episode number and episode name is useful to add if applicable. Quotes are then added to the moderation queue. Below the submission form there is a list of the last 10 approved or rejected submissions made; pending submissions are not shown. If your quote is approved, it will be added to the quotes list to be used in the random quote generator signature image.

Feedback, Report and Contact
These three pages are for you to submit any feedback you have about the site, to report any problems you have with the site, or to contact me personally. All correspondence submitted here will be seen and considered.

If you have any suggestions for the site, feel free to use the feedback or contact page, or leave a comment.
