Aug 2023 Note: The earlier examples in this topic contain references to tags that no longer exist, however the issue with blank results persists.
If I visit https://meta.discourse.org/tags/c/theme/61/theme-component on moblie, tap the magnifying glass, search e.g. for “topic” and tap the checkbox to “search the tag theme-component”, there are two problems.
On the one hand you need to tap the checkbox twice untill the box is checked. On the other hand there are no search results after tapping the checkbox once or twice, while there are many, if you use the desktop search.
Hey, good catch @moin. I think you may have found two bugs.
The checkbox doesn’t work immediately, and
Scoping search to a tag creates a route that Discourse serves with a 403
Checkbox isn’t checking
In the mobile the search link adds “context” to the URL, which reveals the checkbox to be toggled in question. In this case, the URL we are looking at is https://meta.discourse.org/search?context=tag&context_id=theme-component&skip_context=true.
The default on mobile view, and the box will not be checked. Interacting with the checkbox, with touch or keyboard, changes the URL to skip_context=false, but does not check the checkbox. Clicking once more will check it, keeping “false” in the URL.
Afterward it may be toggled back and forth, with corresponding URL changes as expected.
When the search is loaded the checkbox is checked, and interacting with it works as expected: each interaction changes the checkbox and the URL.
I’ve noticed separately that using those checkboxes also causes me to lose focus on the page, regardless of the skip_context value; hopefully it’s the same thing causing our double-click issue.
I’ve reproduced this behavior in safe-mode and on mobile devices.
Okay, I’ll see what I can explain about the tags not scoping in a follow up reply, so it’s easier to split off it needed.
This one threw me off, because when I tried to reproduce it off meta I accidentially loaded a category rather than a tag in the search context. That was fortunate, as when I realized my mistake I at least knew how the search queries are being produced for those contexts.
I was going to link to posts I created with the subscriptions tag, so I went to the tag listing page, and searched from there. No results – see below. When I search from the main page it works all right. It might be the tickbox is the problem, as that is a difference.
