Issues log

As requested, here is a list of currently identified issues. It's not exhaustive but I've tried to capture most of the main bugs and requests for additional functionality. Please don't use this thread to discuss issues but if I have missed something then post here with a link to the original thread.

Issues Log

A status of "Open" means there is no work being undertaken at this point. This may be due to other priorities, timing or cost. If it is decided that no further action is to be taken, the status will be "Closed".

Please could NPD furnish an explanation of why, if I type Management team into the search engine,the top three results are: motorsport team, British team and team-mate?

This is just being very simplistic because I know I could that I could type "Management Team" but I may be searching for key words which are not in association. It illustrates that the search apparently seaches a Boolean OR not a Boolean AND command. So adding detail to your seach enquiry gives you more irrelevant results not more specific ones, I have found this on previous occasions but just gave up. Working in a substantially different manner to that most successful of search engines, Google. It takes a brave company to diverge from known methodology; if successful it is brilliant.

Did I mean Management test? - no I didn't, why does the script imagine my typing would be that poor - m and t are separated by a large area of keyboard, it has different meaning and is not a spelling mistake.

GJT 

you are correct - the search defaults to OR. If you type:

Management AND Team

it will return posts that contain both words in the post (in any order and not necessarily consecutive words). If you want a defined term, just include it in quotes. 

Simples!

Simples! - Yes. But the opposite to the main search engines we are used to so a pain to remember that. When just using the search infrequently.

As Roadsport: AND has logical force as well the force of other search facilities. OR: please could NPD or the individual responsible please explain the rationale behind this decision?

 

Issue: Did we ever receive an explanation of why the last five posts of page 1 appear at the top of page 2? I am sorry if I missed it.

Well I added a few from previous bugs lists that don't seem to have been addressed, and was hoping the table would work so it was open to all to see, however, no.21 should be "Resize tables to fit forum width"!

Ref. no. 7:  "No longer an issue - location is truncated" "Closed".

Sorry, but it is still an issue on a PC running Win7 and Chome as screen shot below:

Ian - I don't know what settings you have applied but I have checked this in Win7/Chrome along with many other browser/OS combinations and it is not a problem. Unless someone else can replicate the issue it will have to remain closed - we can't fix an issue that can't be replicated and affects only one person.

The unable to edit post bug is also resolved - it wasn't a bug at all merely a setting issue. Some people previously had Full HTML posting rights which were subsequently removed and hence they could not edit previous posts that were created with Full HTML. As posted on the bugs forum, I will fix any post found to be in that state.

Shaun, no idea what settings are different on my PC but I haven't changed anything knowingly from standard.

However as I use the PC, or an Android hanset, and neither are being very user friendly I guess I'll just post less Cry

The table formatting would be helpful to resolve though, so at least we can see progress on items Thumbup (thought a thumbs up on it own might be more appropriate there but . . . Wink ).

21 - Resize tables to fit forum width.

22 - "Add to bookmarks" only appears on first page of a multi-page thread.
