Jon W submitted a new resource:

Strands by Waindigo - Breaks longer threads into separate strands, making discussions easier to follow.

This add-on adds a "Strand" link to the bottom of every post so users can reduce noise in larger threads and just see the particular part of a thread discussion that they are interested in.

Strands are created automatically when members quote each others posts. Only the first quote in a post is taken into consideration.

Strands can be created for existing posts based...

very clever :). I just checked your example here:
Wouldn`t it be better if the strand-button only appeared when the resulting strand-view contains more than one posting?
I agree. Needs more caching to be able to do that though which I haven't gotten round to coding yet. It is very very basic at the moment but I thought I'd share it in case it was useful to anyone.
any impact to SEO ? because some how it repeating the content, can we have option rel="nofollow" on the strand(s) link please ?

And about the title, can it follow the real thread instead only "Untitled Strand(s)"
interesting ad don, small problem is though that nobody knows on what post people posted a strand i think when you are in the main thread? would be nice to show the amount of strands or show links to the strand replies in the related post when in the main thread.

From the description:
For example, the opening poster is quoted by the second and third post. The fourth post then starts a new sub-discussion and is quoted by the fifth and sixth post. The seventh post quotes the third post and the eighth quotes the sixth post. This would create two strands, consisting of posts 1, 2, 3 and 7, and 4, 5, 6 and 8. Note that if the 4th post had quoted the first post then there would only be one strand.
So, could it order them as 1, 1A (2), 1B (3), 1B2 (7), 2 (4), 2A (5), 2B (6), 2B2 (8).
@Jon W

did you know.. if you are have a big board, rebuild the strand will really matter, there is anyway to doing this with CLI when rebuild ? 24M posts here :(

anyway, I got this error when our moderators copying inline mod
