|Summary||0017545: Uncategorised lists, confusing name? Could we have a search?|
|Description||Uncategorised lists seems is a little confusing, we have a few note this in the manual testing:|
it sounds like it would show all lists regardless of category, but actually it shows lists that are not yet categorized. There MAY be a translation issue?
Assuming showing all lists regardless of categeory would max out page, perhaps we could have a search? So you can search for list names.

||not sure this is still necessary. I'm hiding the dropdown if there are no categories set up.|
||I think a search would be really great if it's possible|
I don't see why "Uncategorised" showing "all lists that are not yet categorised" is confusing.
That is exactly what the term means.
It could be misunderstood as show "show me lists regardless of category" - I think it's partly because of the nature of the dropdown.
It defaults to "uncategorised" and then from there you zero in on a category. I would assume that this works just like in WordPress, where they have "All categories" by default and then you zero in by using the dropdown to filter by category. Indeed in WP there is no way to show posts with no category usin the filters (though there are posts with no category) - you would have to use the search. The same for dates, "all dates" or June 2015, July 2015 etc.
I can see that the meaning of uncategorised could be interpreted "your way", and that may even be more sensible if someone knows phpList well, however "my way" is also plausible as a meaning, especially in the context of other software like WP, and the this issue did come up in the documentation process as a point of confusion.
We could perhaps change the text? Not sure what too though... Maybe "Without Category?"
I do think a search would really help clarify the situation. Then you would have
All lists, Uncategorised lists, categories... and a search bar next to it.
Realistically, the issue here is that there is a bug in that phpList can't display enough categories right? Maybe we should fix that, have a search, and then all will be more standardised :)
||the reason to have categories is that the "list" page is very slow when the number of lists increases. So, I would want to avoid an "All" option.|
||Yeah, I know that's what I mean by bug.... Is there nothing to be done about that? It seems to me like Categories are useful in their own right, but that view all is just a normal sensible thing to have. In WP they just have a "next 10" system, like we have for campaigns. Can't we do that?|
||that already happens automatically when you have more than 50 lists. I'll drop that to 30.|
Sure or even 5 or 10? The system for campaigns sorting is great (see image).
Also I notice it says "filter" so I never used it, but it's actually a search for the title of the campaigns, which is really awesome.
||mmm, odd, so if you have more than 30 lists it groups them into 10's.... why not just group them when there are more than 10! :D|
||because it's annoying to have them in two pages when there are eg 19, and you would want to have them all in one page. But this page is slow once there are a lot of lists. That's something else I should work on.|
