Someone with more admin access than me will have to finish the job, but check this out:

CLICK HERE: B

This will take you to entries that start with B.

Now we can place links for each letter either on the Categories page or the main page, that will let you browse by letter, instead of clicking 'next 200' for all eternity! Simply take this url:

http://superman.nu/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Entries&from=B

and replace the letter B at the end with whatever letter you'd like to link to.

On the other hand, http://superman.nu/wiki/index.php?title=Category:Entries&until=B

will show only the A entries. The problem right now is showing one letter at a time (except A.) I haven't figured it out yet, but doing that would make the process slower anyway. Better to start with the letter in question than to limit to only that letter.

I've placed a temporary, experimental template on Supermanica, so you can try this very thing. Let me know what you think:

It looks good and is something that a lot of people wanted, so I place it in its proper place.

Nice work, I think it will help visitors to the site out a lot, too...

Thanks! I think I may still play around with the code some more, to make it more pleasing to the eye, but at least it's there.

To answer your earlier Monkey question: The reason I added "01" to the beginning of the "Browse by Letter" entry was to make it appear at the top of the entries category instead of somewhere down in the B section.

If you want to tweak it, please post the code here and I will add it there.

One final arrangement, and now I feel all fuzzy and satisfied inside. Cool

Now we can enter new articles (hint, hint) until Kingdom Come or a server crash, and we'll still be able to locate them in the Entries category.
