(NT) it works:)
(NT) wtg! impressed :-)
It is very impressive. I like the way it gives the wording with the finding. Much easier to use and finds things quicker
maybe needs a little ''fine tuning'' Lee?
using this link and putting jonah in the author box, i get the could not find user jonah page
but on that same page,(with the additional "all CNET forums" button) putting jonah (or jonah jones)in the search box gives me a list of all posts with my name in them, but not authored by me...
a search for vega (J Vega) will give all posts with the word (Los) Vegas...
That is the expected behavior for this search feature...
With this search it only allows exact username to be inputted in the field. Jive's native search for some reason doesn't allow wildcards for usernames. I guess it's because it hits the username database directly to surface the results, rather than scrapping the site like Thunderstone does.
I know it is a minor draw back, but ultimately this will help solve the issue with the problem we are currently seeing in some profile pages where some members' posts are not surfacing as theirs.
Here's how the newer profile will look for you Jonah:
awwwwwwww shucks! [i]my very own page[/i]
ok Lee, as i'm not familiar with Jive, i thought it was "teething problems", if it's 'normal', then i like it!
ok. . .
Looks like if I do an advanced search for authour it works.
1. 'u have no focus with the Enter key after typing your last parameter -- only works by clicking "Search", that darned mouse again.
2. If the displayed input for a found item happens to be underlined and the default length reached before that underline terminates, all subsequent reveals will be underlined also.
Additional fault == "sort"
The listing is not sorted, latest first. With it set the way it is now, users are going to be reading messages months or years old. I'd hate to have to scroll through multiple pages to find just one I had posted -- say yesterday.
Click on the "Date" sort.. by default the result surface
by relevance. Not by date. However if you search by Message Author, it will sorted from newest to oldest post.
Suits me fine...
but I have yet to find a search engine that is as intuitive as I would like. But then again it might be because I'm too much of a perfectionist.
And life goes on...
I think default should be ...
... to sorting by Date, since Relevance seems meaningless the times I've tried.
Also, the search seems to be for "or" rather than "and" -- e.g. if I search on Rhode Island, I get a ton of posts that refer to Long Island or any other Island -- even sorted by relevance.
BTW, this new font is too small :((
