Thanks everyone for all the new input. What's really a bummer about this? This discussion is almost 2 years old. And the search is no better than it was when this discussion was created.
Shame on you, Ning.
Jen, that's the point. That's why I lit it this discussion up again. (Once I found it, that is.)
Horrible UI. False positives up the kazoo - a list of false results as long as your arm. Most are false negatives (searching for absolutely nothing else it can't find a danged TAG for pete's sake crying out loud). It's completely incomprehensible.
t's only because my network is currently populated by mostly-lurkers who are tech-afraid that this hasn't become a huge problem yet. I and the others in-the-know just have workarounds. We actually keep lists!
Thanks for your input. Definitely a discussion that needed a little fire. I've come to realize this is not an easy endeavor. However, doesn't matter how complicated, costly, or what it takes. It just needs to work.
I am so totally with you on this, Jen! All the amazing things we can do with our Ning platforms -- but the search sucks!! Many of members don't even know what a tag is. I'm tired of teaching them. Then, of course, things that I have tagged, of course correctly, I can't find.
How about if you guys don't do anything else for awhile and fix this? Anybody else with me on this?
I have the same issue and it is very important for me too :-(
hmm..I think almost 2 years after this post is searching very weak element in every Ning network
PLEASE HELP ME TOO,
Unfortunately..... I really agree with you Jen.
Ticket n° 00711722 : Profile question-based searches not working
Ticket n° 00614882 : Events don't show up in my calendar
/events/event/listAllTypes is not sorted and numbers are not working and tags from old events are showing up.
Hey Ning... Why don't you spend some time on that before changing the admin section ???
