premiere forum search.png

If i click on one of the links i am back where i started. More Options does not help either.

Is it me or do i not understand how this search workes.

I also would like to find all (not just the last 25 or so) the posts of one Person. How do i do that.

Thanks

May be related to this http://forums.adobe.com/thread/776423?tstart=0 (or may be a different Jive issue) but I have also noticed that the forum search function is broken

Until Adobe/Jive fixes the problem, I don't think there is anything you may do

Ann,

Several others have experienced the same thing, in the last month +/-. I have only gotten that once, and in moments (actually just adding a Search Option) it cleared up.

On Google Chrome and XP-Pro SP3.

Most definitely, no. People have been complaining about the search engine since the implementation of this new version of the forums about two years ago, and improvements have ben few and mostly partial.

I'm getting the same problem as well.  I'm sure it worked when I tried it a couple of months ago.

It may well be that the search engine is worse than usual. It wouldn't be the first instance in which things deteriorate instead of improving. The most recent example to come to mind is the loss of most formating features in messages in order to reduce spam. I wonder how many important sites have adopted measures such as this...

This is extremely annoying. This is a fairly new error: for certain queries the subject name is not showing, and the links in the so called result leads to the unfiltered forum roots.

I get it as soon as I search on more than one word, but also on searches like INDESIGN\_MARKUP (the underscore has to be "escaped" by a back-slash character). Perhaps the same goes for searching on words ending in digits, like your mp3 search. Searching for "mp" only, returns a more normal looking result.

Adobe, please do something about the search function!

I have a shortcut to page limiting the search to the InDesign scripting forum, and that works fine, but it's not user friendly to let the users build their own solutions just to search in your forum threads. I've read that people develop plugins for firefox just to be able to make a normal search in a forum.

Please Adobe, prioritize this! Adapt the forum to what the users want. Talk to the company behind the forum code, and pay them to make it good. And most importantly pay attention to pure errors like this:

... and fix them.

Best regards, Andreas Jansson

PS. I just filed this as a bug in the Feature Request/Bug Report Form.

I can not reproduce this on multi-word queries. I can reproduce it on

every search that has a character that is not a-z or a space.

Jive is supposed to have a fix ready. We are waiting for their Hosting team to push it out. I'll post a note when we have an eta on the fix.

I can't say it will be an improvement, it should be a fix to get it back to where it was.

Still, thanks! That will work for now, while everyone is working on making it better...

Sometimes, one should probably be thankful for what they have, as when even that breaks, it is really bad.

PS - years ago we were at a large, self-contained resort. At each evening meal, in a different restaurant, I complained to my wife about the limited wine lists at each - always "the usual suspects." On the last night, we sampled the one remaining restaurant. That wine list was horrible! I whispered to her, that despite my complaints, I'd have been happy with any of those other restaurant's wine list. Cheer up, things could be worse, and often they soon are.

Bill, if you lived here, you would have no problem with the choice o

f wines. Not even in the cheapest restaurants. The selections -and the prices- will be different, but you will find good quality wines in all of them.

So when is this going to be fixed?

I wanted to post a documentary topic on that Flash Player "kill-bit" that keeps popping up time and again.  I wrote a detailed reply a couple of weeks ago, and I am trying to find that post, but searching for "kill-bit" still just brings up a list without any post links in it.

What is the point of a search that just returns unusable results?

Thank you for your suggestion.  Unfortunately the "Recent Activity" only goes back a few days, and the post I was looking for was a few weeks ago.  (I wanted the info as reference for the post that you mentioned, which I wrote after my post here.)

Something odd today. I more often use Google Search, than the Adobe Forum Search, which does seem to be smurfed for all, and the results all went to the forum, but NOT to any of the articles. Something major is happening, and not just with the Adobe Forum Search. Even Google is getting wonky links.

Oh well, maybe all the recent slowdowns will result in a new, improved and usable Search? Or, maybe not.

I'm new here...this is my first post.

But I've also noticed the same problem...and every search in this sense does nothing but improve the system.
