using the Search Threads and Posts tab, I was just trying to search Open Bug reports to get a list of all of the threads with prefixes as Confirmed but got an error since I didn't specify Keywords, Posted by member, or Newer than.
Seems to me that if I specify which subforum (Open Bugs...) and the prefix, I should get the list.
Thot I'd ask. I'll be happy to post a bug, a tweak needed, or function / feature request if appropriate.
Please advise. Thanks!
Makes sense of course and thanks, but by the same token, why EXCLUDE that option from the "advanced" form?
And to me it wasn't intuitively obvious to click on the prefix of any prefixed post (still isn't) to get a list of all of them.
I'm one of your crash test dummies!
What I'm understanding you to say is that I can click on any prefix in any post to get a list of all posts with that prefix.
Is my understanding of that correct?
I will check it now of course.
Thanks again Brogan.
Also thanks for the heads up about the suggestion thread, ragtek. I couldn't find it easily when I search, so that's why I just started a thread rather than posting it as a bug.
If you happen to know the link to that thread it would be good for one of us to post it here, to point others to it.
How is that obvious to a new user (such as I)? Esp when there is no option shown for this in the "advanced" form.
I naturally tend to use the advanced form, but the option is not there. That's my issue.
Nice of course to know that there's another way to get the data, but I think that option still belongs in the Advanced form.
Ok, good to know.
How is a naive user supposed to know that it's only available in such and such view?
Do they have to read a manual, or what?
Again imho that doesn't meet the typical highly intuitive usability standard that XF has spoiled us into expecting.
It's a GREAT feature / function. Just unfinished imho on the intuitive usability standard.
