Ok, thanks for explaining that. Cheers
You're welcome @biowriterab.
I'm a recent returner to TES Forums (been a member since 2005 according to my profile) but I apparently have made no postings ... when I have quite a few to my name. Is this a bug or just that any posts over a certain age are not allocated to me?
Hello @grumbledook When I look at your profile page - activity - I can see 13 messages to your name.
I think the counter on your pop-up profile did reset when the site was revamped, but your messages in the forums are not lost.
Thank you @marlin for responding to Grumbledook's query.
Yes we will.. This is so helpful to everyone. Thank you
Has the issue with the search bar been mentioned? I type a search term in, press enter (or even click on the magnifying glass), which takes me to the advanced search page where I have to type my search terms in again.
Have you used the 'Search forums' tab in the top sub-navigation bar:
The Search page will open. The default setting is Search Everything. Fill in the details and you click the 'Search' button:
You can find the search page here: https://community.tes.com/search/
I hope that helps.
The problem seems to be with the search function at the top of the screen @TES_Rosaline
It seems to serve no function. Choosing 'Jobs' from the drop down menu and entering a term just takes one to the forum search, rather than to the Jobs section.
Hello @marlin, the search box (with the magnifying glass) in the top main navigation bar is a fixed feature across all channels on the website.
However, I will pass on your comment to the dev team.
Thank you @TES_Rosaline
I see what you mean - if you are in Jobs, then that top menu search tool is automatically set to Jobs and so on for the other sections. I hadn't realised that.
You're welcome @marlin.
The forum platform has it's own search feature which is why the main website search facility is not required for the Community site.
I'm glad to see that the bug is being passed onto the dev team, thanks.
Following a comment elsewhere, I was wondering why it says I'm a New Commenter when I have been posting on here since 2010?
I have just spent a great deal of time filling in your careers profile in order that the fields are pre-filled for the 'quick apply' option on your job posts.
However, after saving my profile numerous times and checking that it has been saved via incognito webpages, when I click on 'quick apply' for a job all of the fields apart from my first name remain BLANK.
Sorry that you have experienced a problem using the career profile system. Have you logged the issue with the Customer Services Team? Please can you email firstname.lastname@example.org. In the meantime, I will pass on your comments to my colleagues to investigate. Sorry for any inconvenience caused. Please bear with us while we try to resolve the issue.
I really agree with @guinnesspuss , cause some of the time I cant find the forums. There is problem in search result also.
Thank you for your feedback. Please can you be a bit more specific. You said that you can't find the forums, is there a specific forum that you are looking for and can't find via search? Or is it a problem with the search feature?
Not sure the site saves my preference to display my nickname instead of real name...
TES_Rosaline can smith be done about it? thx.
I'll see if my colleagues can see what the problem is. If the situation changes please can you let me know?
