Need help sorting out how to use 23? Or have you discovered one of those nasty bugs?

Search results?

richy   May 27, 2009, 03:53 PM

I'am new here, with free account. All works fine- thank you- , only the search isn't possible. Why I can't find my pictures in the search for all?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   May 27, 2009, 04:01 PM

Hey richy,

I love your photos -- they're very zen and leafy. I've made sure your photos are available through search now.

richy   May 27, 2009, 07:52 PM

cool...quick help, steffen. thanks for complements.
More photos soon.

Ralle   September 11, 2009, 06:17 PM

Thank you for help and sorry for my bad english ;-)

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   September 11, 2009, 06:27 PM

You've been whitelisted...

By the way, those are some wonderful photos -- I've selected a few of them as favorites.

Ralle   September 11, 2009, 07:23 PM

Help - I have the same problem!

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   September 24, 2010, 08:30 AM

@steffen: same problem :-) can you help me? thx alot!

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   October 28, 2010, 11:57 PM

Of course, you should be good to go now!

mikejhca   November 06, 2010, 05:32 PM

Same problem. I have been waiting for my pictures to show up in the search for months.

theimaginary   November 06, 2010, 10:45 PM

The same problem here too. Can´t find my photos or my account when searching. Thanks!

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   November 07, 2010, 10:21 AM

Cool guys; should be all better now.

theimaginary   November 07, 2010, 12:18 PM

Working fine! Thank you!

Pablo I   December 12, 2010, 12:01 AM

Hi! Same problem here. Could you fix it please? And maybe work on a more permanent solution ...? :)

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   December 13, 2010, 12:33 AM

Hey Pablo

Permanent would be great; there is unfortunately a reason why new users are no immediately appearing in public search results -- and that reason is spam and porn. I have fixed it on your account though ;)


hmpics   January 31, 2011, 05:33 PM

Hi all,
sorry for digging up this thread again, but could somebody tell how many time has to pass before one can find my photos using the tags I attached to them?

Many thanks in advance.

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   January 31, 2011, 08:29 PM

No worries, your account has been verified now. Sorry about the delay.

hmpics   February 01, 2011, 04:28 PM

Don't worry, I was just wondering.

Many thanks for your help.

Namenvergessen   September 12, 2012, 12:17 AM

Hey Steffen,
i have the same "problem". Maybe you can fix that? Would be great!

Many thanks in advance
Timo :)

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   September 12, 2012, 09:32 AM

Of cource -- it's been done ;-)

weso   October 30, 2012, 12:45 PM

Hi Steffen,
the same problem with me. I "kapelle" 22 images tagged in the text and in the tags.
These are found by me only when I'm eingeloogt and under "my photos" search.
However, if I use the generic 23-search, not a single image is not found!
Sorry - but my pictures should find other people :-(

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   October 30, 2012, 12:51 PM

There you go ;-)

Sebastian Schuster (PixelPilz)   January 12, 2013, 07:48 AM

Same problem here.
Can you please help me?

Do all new members get into a 'quarantine' until they start digging through group topics and end up asking for getting allowed to be found?

Thats probably good against spam, but does not sound totally user-friendly to me, sorry.

Sebastian :)


Edit: Problem seems to be solved, thank you.
But somehow i do still wonder why everyone here got an answer quite fast and i do not.
I dont want to complain about this - I'm just wondering.

Have a nice day :)

Ulf Jahr   June 25, 2013, 07:11 PM

Hi there, I face the same problem, can this be solved please?

Thanx in advance and Greetings....

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   June 25, 2013, 07:48 PM

Thanks Ulf, it's changed now...


datiswous   July 01, 2013, 03:48 PM

Ok, can you fix it for me too?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   July 01, 2013, 08:19 PM

Sure, done...

datiswous   July 01, 2013, 09:47 PM

I assume that when I have a tag called schiermonnikoog I can find my photo's tagged with that with search action: schiermonnikoog , right? That still doesn't work, I get 3 other pictures in search result, which are not mine. Or do I have to be patient and wait a couple of days?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   July 02, 2013, 06:01 AM

Sorry, I hit the wrong option for moderation -- it will work now.


datiswous   July 02, 2013, 08:05 AM


Dan Xerxes   July 04, 2013, 06:24 PM

I have the same problem, can you please fix it for me too ?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   July 07, 2013, 05:32 PM

Hi Dan -- it's fixed now. Lovely photos btw.

Dan Xerxes   July 07, 2013, 08:07 PM

Thanks very much Steffen :)

Eric Tessmer, Molokai Hawaii Photos   October 12, 2013, 01:15 AM

Mine seems to have this problem also. Could you take a look?

Andreas Bucher-Mack   January 15, 2014, 07:01 PM

The search function does not work for me.

I have reactivated my plus account a few days ago. Is this the same problem?

Steffen Fagerström Christensen Team 23   January 15, 2014, 08:12 PM

Do you get errors when you run a search? What happens?

Andreas Bucher-Mack   January 25, 2014, 08:52 AM

When searching for all, i get the message "file not found" (Datei nicht gefunden). I tried it for example with 'Saarland' and 'Århus'.

Searching in my pictures is working well.
