New way to tag characters on a post by searching

Got loads of characters?

too many characters

Ok yeah this might be quite a lot! The screenshot above was taken by Leon from his game Spellbound, which has quite a few characters! 

In OngoingWorlds, you can tag characters that appear in the post, which will show them down the right-hand side (more about this here). The problem is, selecting characters from this long list can be quite difficult.

A solution – Search!

Locke from Blue Dwarf has created a solution for us, and implemented a search option which shows if there’s over 15 characters in a game. The search box will autosuggest characters based on what you type.

And if you still want to see the list you can by clicking “Show all characters”.
