Search function not working correctly

Post by Nightshft » 10/06/2019 - 1:01

Hi LMan and all,

I just registered to show up that the remix64 search function isn't working correctly.

Examples:
"Nexus" finds no title, although there is a release by zyron. (try searching for "nexus blue")

"Spellbound" finds no releases - which is a real shame :wink: :?

Guess many other searches fail too.

Thx for watching into this

Hey Nightshift,

thanks for the heads-up. The search jumps to a user's profile if there is a direct match, as in the examples you provided.

I'll have to rewrite the search concept, it's ages old.

I've rewritten the search function. It will now give an overview of song and artist matches, member directory matches and the manual option to proceed with an article search.

Most welcome; unlike some other necessary changes I need to make to the site, this was not a lot of work. :cheers:
Glad people still care about the site.
