... there is, and always has been, imho, a bit of a problem in viewing all the projects on LJ.
You go away for a week (or even a couple of days), and the last project you viewed is now many (possibly many many) pages back in the list, somewhere, but you don’t know where. The problem is that “Page 1” always contains the latest projects, and the last one you viewed last week is disappearing backwards, and at speed.
Well, whilst looking around yesterday I discovered an undocumented feature (well, it may be documented but I don’t recall ever seeing it).
Underneath “Woodworking Projects Gallery” you have the choice of “most recent” (the default), “most viewed”, “most discussed”, and “most favourited” (OK, it says favorited, but I’m English) – these do what you expect them to do.
What it does not offer you is “by project”, but the underlying LJ WebServer can do this.
is the projects gallery, ordered by project number – ie, by oldest first. The last such page contains the most recent projects.
The key advantage of viewing the projects this way is that page 178 stays the same – new projects are added, but page 178 stays the same. If you’re viewing all the projects and you’re up to page 3750, say, in a weeks time you’ll still be on page 3750.
So – you can either leave a browser tab open at the latest page you’ve looked at, or remember/jot down “3750” and restart from there.
This is, of course, subject to change without notice.
