5.3 Backend - Pages - Search - somewhat unexpected result

  • 5.3 Backend - Pages - Search - somewhat unexpected result
  • Look at the screencast here http://www.marktold.com/screencast/sf_search_53.swf

    1) Cancel Search is hidden on smaller screens (might be because of german translation)
    2) Going to search and then cancel leaves the pages in unexpected order. Like to go back to tree view.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback

    1.    1. There is indeed an issue with the close search button, which I have logged in our system

    2.    2. This works as intended - the items are returned as a search result, which is not arranged hierarchically like the standard pages view

  • @Markus in a WAY, it's a nice (unintended perhaps) feature

    Lets you view your backend sitemap flattened instead of having to drill down into everything (like lets say if you were going through every page to set some common property)?

    ...but yeah I can't imagine an empty search returning everything is by design :)

  • Dear Krasimir 

    Sorry but 2. does surely not work as intended. If I DO NOT perform any search (because I click cancel) why should it return all pages as if I searched with no search term?

    You might expect this from what you programmed. I don't expect this from a client side.

    Here comes another one of my car anologies. 

    Put the key into the ignition with the intend to start the car. Now cancel and remove the key -> engine starts.

  • Dear Steve

    You are right. It's not a bug it's a feature. It's just depends on how you look at it :-)

    Your google example 

    No search term not search result, but in this case it's a cancel button. So its not even like hitting the search with no terms but the stop loading button in browser or back button in browser.

    I am looking forward to the time when I really need the flattened sitemap - hope I remember that feature then.

  • Well since it was opened as bug 1/2 year ago I assume that it might not be so intended after all.

    Very small issue, anyhow.

    But lots of small stuff can amount to a pile as well.

  • Hi,

    After further investigation I found that there already is such an issue logged in our system. You can view it here.
    Thank you for your support and feedback.
