Correct on both counts. Revisiting it after the post and doing a bit more testing, I decided it was too hacky to want to put it up as an option. I didn’t really want to push new users to try it and then think Bubble was slow or bad or whatever, not understanding the implications of the method. Your reposting of my removed message is a bit of a breach of confidence, but whatever, I guess I should’ve had all those thoughts before pressing send and that’s on me.
If your database is not large, it works. It will work for pages like “support” and “login”. But I would no longer would recommend using it for user pages or any “thing” with more than a few entries. Apparently putting it on apps where the database has many “things” is also slowing it down? That’s by feel not testing (disclaimer). Allright I hope that answers the question “I don’t know why you withdrew your message”.
Also @danielowega you’re right, but UX-wise, I mean, pretty inconsequential. Who would navigate to a custom url from a page they want to go back to. CTRL+T then add URL is what most people do. Otherwise you got wherever you are from a link and DO OBVIF_(*OUSLY NOT use those urls for navigation from within the app… So back button is probably not an issue here, even if Bubble opts to do redirects that way.
Now @ Bubble. When I first opened this forum this was a discussion I was interested in. That was 2 years ago and I know you said it was difficult for your infrastructure to support such a change. Seems to be a pretty hot topic, and I’ve seen firsthand how you listen to your users. Looking forward to seeing this implemented.
