Items filter improperly when searching Admin/Settings


(Scott Trager) #1

Hi guys,

When you do a search under “Admin/Settings” it used to provide you with a list of categories with the number of items in each category that match. Now when doing the same search it initially does this but within 2 seconds suddenly filters everything to “All” and removes the categories- this makes it difficult to determine which area a setting is in requiring us to search every time we change a setting.

To quickly reproduce, do a search for the letter “a”

As you can see you intitally see the categoes as expected… However wait 2-3 seconds and it automatically changes to look like:

For longer searches (for example “newuser”) this change occurs too fast to even determine what section the setting is in. @Bill_S was looking for these settings and still cannot determine the correct category so has to do a search every time he wants to update one.


Better indication a topic is locked

we will change it so it “defaults” to all when searching but still exposes the breakdown per section, old way it worked was very confusing
