  To achieve that, there needs to be a search box in Blogs specifically for that purpose: "Search Blogs". Actually John, there is a search in blogs, videos, etc.  What it does is takes you to the keyword search page with all elements deselected except for the particular area you want to search.

Someone asked me for some custom code changes in search.  There are a lot of things that uses the /inc/classes/ChWsbSearch.php as one navigate around the site.  Enter https://my-niffy-cheetah-site.tld/member-name in the browser URL bar and ChWsbSearch.php is called.  I can't make changes in ChWsbSearch.php so that means perhaps cloning the class.

I guess I have a different slant on some of these things. If you wish to do a limited search for items, such as stuff in a blog, the best and obvious place to do that would be going to the blog and searching there. To achieve that, there needs to be a search box in Blogs specifically for that purpose: "Search Blogs". This is what happens in Facebook groups and as much as I detest Facebook, the group search does what it's meant to do.

These are suppose to be sticky buttons.  Normal action by users is to push a button to select it and in the case of a sticky button, it stays pushed until you push it again to release it.  Back when I built HTML websites I would create two sets of icons for buttons; one would be the pressed state of the button and the other would be the released state. However, if we are going back to the checkbox then the discussion is mute on buttons; and I don't know why Boonex moved to buttons; they often had

They are not if you look at it from a different point of view. The initial color of the button is the cue.By default all buttons are enabled. Bright color indicating enabled state or in the case of a check box, checked state. When clicking the button it switches to a dark color. Disabled state or unchecked. The fact that they are buttons and not check boxes is the confusing part. I have noted it. Ticket in https://github.c

I've always questioned the value of the Keyword search. The general search box does a good job at finding most keywords throughout the site except for parts of the profile. For it to do all the profile I think you have to make all fields searchable via the Profile Fields Builder. (Top right hand sub menu) I only have a few fields searchable because I really haven't seen the need for all of them  . . . yet. I use Anton's Searchable Fields which is excellent. If you have a field entitled Books and s

As I play with this it is obvious that the button selection is backwards; this was coded by the Boonex developers so it doesn't surprise me.  Pressing the button should select that area of the site to search; pressing again should return the button to not selecting that area of the site to search; this is the natural way for selections to work and is how most users would expect it to work.  I don't really care if all the buttons are pressed by default or not pressed by default as long as there is an easy

The keyword search page comes up with a bunch of buttons and no text to explain.  I don't really like the idea of the buttons in this particular application;  I am guessing this was done for easier use on a mobile device such as a smartphone.  Outside of no text to explain what I am suppose to do with the buttons, is that there is no way to push all of the buttons at once; in usage it appears that I push a button to not search in that particular area of the site.  As it stands now, I have to push each bu

  I will check into the view count to make sure it is counting views properly. What is the thinking behind views count.  Is it just visiting the page?  Is that done by member ID?  If the same member visits the page twice, is that two counts?  I guess if by member ID then all views by a guest would count since they all have the same member ID of zero.

  I will check into the view count to make sure it is counting views properly.There will be nothing i can do about facebook inaccuracies. And it is inaccurate as far as i am concerned. Example, clicking like can add a item to whoever liked it's facebooks timeline, and if in turn someone shares that link, the like also gets shared resulting in 2 likes when there should in my opinion only be one. Seems facebook shares of liked items are included in the like count
