Spellcheck


Spellcheck is now more user friendly. It works more like most web mail programs instead of having to paste the entire block of corrected text back into the post.

Excuse me, but where did the "advanced search" go? Today all of sudden it stopped working in Opera 8.5. If I press the "search" button I only get the simple search.

It still does work in Mozilla Firefox.

It might be a bug in Opera, but uhm... why has it been changed. My Opera is still the same as compared to yesterday.

And where is the functionality in "advanced search" to search for
key1 AND key2 AND key3?

The search now returns key1 OR key2 OR key3, even if I enter
+key1 +key2 +key3 as search, or
key1 AND key2 AND key3

This doesn't make the search any useful, and doesn't exactly encourage the user to do a search before posting a thread.

Nothing about accessing the advanced search has been changed, and if you want to use boolean operators you of course need to select "Boolean" search and not "Natural Language".

It's weird. Downright weird.

In Opera 8.5, when I click in Opera on the "search" label (on the blue bar) I get a drop-down list with:
1. An input box where I can specify my search string
2. Below that, a hyperlink with "advanced search". This takes me to the search page (search.php)

This afternoon when I wrote the previous message the hyperlink would NOT appear below the input box. I have not restarted Opera, KDE or Linux since the time I wrote this 18:00 UTC and now (24:00 UTC). I have not been drinking, I have not seen any little green penguins.

In Mozilla Firefox, when I click on this search label, it takes me immediateley to the search page. I heard about browser dependencies, I wish they were not there.

Boolean search instead of natural search? Hmmm.... I can claim that this radio button was not there before, but I am afraid then I lie... I must have uhm... well... you know... uhm... overlooked it.

The only way you should go directly to the search page is if you have javascript disabled.

I have Javascript enabled in Firefox, but still the search button takes me directly to the search page.

Never mind, search works, that is what is important.

Great mind!, Great and innovative work!, Congrats!!!!

This is a clean and neat work. You have done a very good work here.

My only problem is that I have to scroll horizontally which is a bit stressful on my path unlike before when it fit horizontally well with my 15" 800 by 600 pixels resolution monitor.

Well, enough of my complains. You have done a great job, I am happy for you.

Is there some way to get a list of threads where I am a participant on my MyLQ page? Or a list of my posts? I can get this info if I click on someone else's name on this page (presumably me too once I've posted this) but I'd think that sort of personal tracking info would be apropos for the personal portal page.

the first thing I noticed is how the pages no longer fit on my laptop/vnc screens, but maybe that's a good thing seeing as the advertisements are now all pushed offscreen to the right

the other thing I notice is the session timeout is very very short; in the time it took to post the first revision of this and then run to the bathroom, then click on "LQ blog" linked to my name here (although it's not my blog?) I was logged out and had to login again to save my edit.

and what is with the little Tux below the author details?

The timeout is the same as it used to be - 15 minutes. You may want to see this thread if you are having a problem staying logged in. I agree that the feature you described would be useful. Can you add it as a feature request to the bug tracker? Thanks.
