Repository search


Recommended Posts

I have been looking for Mods for CMBN in the Repository. I have noticed that when performing a search, the search tool will not return more than 10 results. I saw, in another thread on this subject, that the Repository software is provided by a third party, and it is what it is, love it or leave it.

The Battlefront.com site is FULL of multi-page subjects, including the Repo itself. Why would it be so hard for a search to return more than 10 results? Surely, the coders know how to provide a multiple page result, with forward and back buttons. I'm thinking that perhaps it is just an oversight, and when pointed out, they will get red in the face with embarrassment, and fix it?

Hm, that sounds like a bug of some sort. We'll look into it.

My theory is that, when they were writing the code, they put a limit at 10 results, so they could concentrate on coding the search heuristics, and put off worrying about formatting the results. Then, they forgot to go back and finish the code to format the results, so the 10 item, single page limit is still with us.
