In reply to: Recover lost password bug?
I noticed this bug as well (0.8.3) and came across another one (see below).
The whole password workflow seems a bit clunky and confusing. There is no link for a password reminder or reset, and the only way to get to the reset function is to attempt a login. Many users who have forgotten their password may not try to log in, and will look for a “password reminder” or reset function instead. They may not work out that they have to click log-in anyway to get to the reset!
On my current install, if I initiate a password reset with an empty user id field, the system simply exits and displays a blank page. It would be better to trap this and indicate to the user that they must enter a user name to execute the reset process.In reply to: Paginated search results
Thanks for the replies (haven’t been able to work on this for a few weeks, hence my late response). As I said previously, I’m not keen on the 3 list approach at all, because I think most people expect a search function to return a single list of results (regardless of the strategy used to generate the results). Search is particularly important for the site I am working on, because the forum will be used to store race results, and users want to be able to search through several years of past results using an event name, for example.
I have used Google site search on an existing website. I wasn’t aware of the custom search engine, and it looks interesting but I would like to keep the search more tightly integrated with the site if possible. The Google solution also appears to be JS dependent for displaying results in an i-frame.
I think that modifying the relevant post search to provide pagination, as suggested, might be an acceptable solution. I’m not sure that I require the title and recent post searches, so I could simply discard these and go for a single list solution.
Thanks again for the advice.
