Errors and Issues on this site

If you guys have noticed, I have made some changes to the Charcha Search Functionality.

- Improved the search results page layout. Previously it was a table with narrow tables, so reading the content was not that easy. Also the summary that returns with the result is improved in terms of content and look.
- Added an option to return results for Last Month, Last Year, Last 5 years, Last 10 years and All
- Previously providing a search string was compulsory, so it was difficult to search on all the posts by a given poster. Now you can leave the search string empty and just provide the username.

Please try it and give me your comments.

Thanks.

GG Thanks a lot !

Initial feedback . Will add more.

a. The cell may look better and more meaningful with a Title above 'Text' .. Something like 'Find Here' or 'Search the Forum' or a magnifying glass image ..it would make it more intuitive for new users.

b. The default in the drop down should be 'ALL' as a person would most likely press search w/o changing that option and it may not give him the result .. Happened to me as I did not realize the LOV.

c. A line of space after username textbox and another one before 'Search Records for ' and one before the Search button may lay out better.

d. The search is working much better and results are well laid out .

e. When we click on a user profile , it does show how many topics started and discussed by the user , but when clicking on either link , it does not give correct results ... shows other user started topics for eg. Used to work correctly before ..

1. SQL error
2. Getting logged out automatically on your own.
3. Not being able to post a new topic ( sometimes ), although you can reply to other posts.

Are some of the technical issues. Doesn't happen a lot, but does happen a few times .

Fido,

Thanks for the suggestion. I fixed the lay out little bit. I also fixed the profile issue. Please check and let me know how it works.

Thanks for your suggestions.

1. SQL Error, as that is a random thing, It is hard to trace, but I am including a logic to log the error and send an email to me to see when the error happens.

2. Logout Automatically. I don't see a huge value in it and so putting low on priority list.

3. Again a random thing - hard to trace.

Looks much better GG :) .. I can even see the Time text box brought up which makes a lot of sense.

A few minor ones (sorry for being a pain) ..if possible

a. Titles left aligned

b. 'Search in Charcha' ... Can we replace it with 'FIND IN CHARCHA' as Search already occurs on the button also...... This may be subjective so please don't do it if it does not appeal.... but capitalizing would help.


The profile thing is working 'PERFECT' ... Thank You !!

(One more unrelated thing - when we access the site on a mobile device , it opens the desktop version rather than a mobile one ...Is it something we are doing incorrectly .. like not adding the m before the website or that feature would come later on )

I rarely have used capitalization on the site, so I am not considering it. I have made titles left aligned.

On the mobile one, it should detect the cell phone automatically. May be the code is not sufficient to detect it. let me check.

Forgot to add: m.canadiandesi.com works fine, if auto detect doesn't work.

For mobile devices, I updated the script. As obviously I can't have all the cell phone devices to test, can you all please help me by opening it from cellphones and see if it opens a mobile version of it?

If it doesn't please post here you devise OS and version.

Thanks.
