Search Broken?

Unread postby flyers3003 » Tue Oct 10, 2017 12:18 pm  

I think search has been broken. I noticed today that someone added a duplicate of the Mint Raspberry deck - https://www.portfolio52.com/deck/5327/view. Original is - https://www.portfolio52.com/deck/4135/view. But when I do a search on "mint" or "raspberry", only the new listing shows up. This is bad news as others will now start creating duplicates if they can't successfully search for a deck.

I think I figured it out. The original had errors when saving and I noticed it had 'unlimited' listed for Production Run. When I removed that entry it saved OK and also appeared in the search. Adding 'unlimited' back again created the error on save. Thus, we actually have a bug with allowing non-integers into that field and/or how it handles it if that does happen.

The search is pretty poor though as it's always inclusive and you can't do multiple search terms as it will assume OR. Likewise you can't search on a specific field, searching for a deck that has say 2015 in the title will bring up all decks that were created that year. So yeah, it's a poor minimal function search, but not really broken. In this case the deck was 'corrupt' due to above bug and now working OK.

I marked the new deck as duplicate and will be deleted in the near future. Thanks for posting!

I did talk to Alex about this and he made a note of it for a possible future update in coming months. He's quite busy these days, especially with the upcoming decks and the 52+J. I also created an official bug report for this one that he and the developer will be using to evaluate and understand the current issues - https://unitedcardists.com/viewtopic.php?f=60&t=10614

An "advanced" search would be a great thing. I've mentioned to Alex before, I would GLADLY pay for a more advanced version of the site. Maybe open up some extra features for users who pay a small monthly or annual fee to help keep the project alive.

Do we have another deck with this issue?
https://www.portfolio52.com/deck/3561/view

Is now duplicated by
https://www.portfolio52.com/deck/5436/view

Because the 1st one isn't showing in Search.

I added the duplicate one since I couldn't find it. I think we'll need Nate on this. 8-)

Well, it turns out that I could fix the issue after all. The Production Run was set to "n/a". I was able to delete that, save the deck and now it shows in search.

I also took the liberty of marking the 2nd deck as a duplicate. 4.of.Clubs - recommend changing your deck collection to the old listing. Sorry for the confusion. Good to know that if I see this in the future I can update the deck not showing up in search.

Good find, I'll keep that in mind too.
