Solved Did anyone notice post searches won't go past the first page?

Post by lmm on April 23rd 2012, 8:19 pm

First topic message reminder :

I have tried to look up a few items and even thought my search may yield 200 or 300 posts, only the first page will show. As soon as I hit 'next' or 'page 2', I get a message similar to 'no posts match your search'.

A glitch with search???

Oh no way!!! This is the only way we are able to find current posts. Please bring it back as it hasn't caused a problem for the few years that we have been using it so why would it cause issues now all of a sudden?!

We didn't have to make an announcement because it wasn't an update.
There were a bug which required the intervention of our technicians and now they decided to make some changes for the good running of the existing system.

If another solution is found in the meantime, I'll inform you, but for the moment you need to fill at least an username or a keyword.

Find it hard to believe that this so called "bug" had gone unnoticed all this time as I've been using the "search function" with the * wildcard since I created my forum without any problems whatsoever...

It may not seem important to you personally but like others here and myself have said, having the ability to display the "latest posts" on our sites is very important to us and our members...

The widget version for this is not suitable for most of us due to it's very limited layout and members when they visit our sites require any easy way to keep up with the latest posts and having to type something into a search box is definitely not an easy or user friendly way to do that...

If for whatever reason the techs do decide they wont revert back to the old wildcard method then can you ask them to at least provide a way for us to display the latest post without having to use the widgets, otherwise for myself and a number of others here we will have to find a company/ site host who does provide such a service...

It's not very helpful or nice just to be told by you that we will have to put up with this or that you didn't have to inform us... please show a little bit more respect and be helpful to your members Rolling Eyes

You didn't seen any error in your forum, but here on the servers the technicians had to face some bugs that you aren't aware about. You are very numerous on the community, so the messages are numerous also. This is a very heavy burden for servers.

If they have took this decision, there's a good reason.
This character is no longer accepted by the search function to preserve the current system so I'm really sorry but you'll have to find another solution for your HTML code...

I told that I didn't have to inform you because I wasn't aware of this before some members warned me, as you have certainly seen this previously in the thread. So I can't inform the users of something I didn't know. Now I know why the wildcards doesn't worked anymore, because I've asked it to the techs, so I inform you. That's my job to answer your questions and doing my best to help you. Wink Smile

Thanks for your understanding thumright

The 'techs' are too lazy for that, any way. They haven't update their 'project/product' for some time now

Ryanz,
Spoiler:

Our devs, along side with Leeloo actually care about us, the company and it's various 'products'. The Devs have been working quite hard lately -- Sure you haven't noticed it because their making sure it's not noticeable. What their doing right now is called a 'Bug Blitz' where they focus primarily on fixing bugs, which they would do even when their working on new features, which they are doing at the same time, however they focus on the bugs. An example of a day spent would be 4/5 days on bugs and 1/2 days on updates.
YES THEY DO OCCASIONALLY WORK ON WEEKENDS

Sure, they haven't pushed out anything major recently, but they are focusing on other just as important things, security, server side upgrades, bugs/glitches and re-coding things that were taken out of our forum, for example, a previously attempted replacement reply editor based on the CK-Editor.
ForuMotion has HEAPS of languages they MUST develop all of their coding for and if it doesn't work on just one, they HAVE to start again until they get it right, ofcause, if a community doesn't like it, it can usually be removed. It has been done a few times already Wink

Leeloo does what I am sure is her best to pass information around, but if she doesn't get it, she can't do anything about it. She also does a pretty darn good job around here, in my opinion!

If you wish to discuss this, my PM is open, feel free to utilize it.

Franko, an alternative work around, which I don't notice any difference is, not having the '*' in it, so it just searches for any username... just like the wildcard does...search for any name.
If there's a difference, I apologize however I haven't noticed one yet.
