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

searching tags

helen birch   November 14, 2012, 08:19 PM

I'm trying to search for specific images using tags.
The search facility is constantly giving me a "Sorry, we couldn't find anything matching....."so, I've been looking for everything manually....and finding it....eventually. This is tiresome, and VERY time consuming.

What's going on 23? Slow, slow, slow (until today) for a announcement of server maintenance downtime last week, and now this.

I use 23 for referencing work projects, and it's becoming too darned unreliable.
Please let us know what's happening....soon?

Nothing happens ...

I have the same problem. For example the tag "opernhaus". No search result. But there are 7 or 8 fotos tagged with opernhaus. Please help.

Ach Mensch. Wieso tut sich hier nichts?

For what it's worth, if I search my images using a tag keyword, it finds those photos tagged with the keyword.

i think there is something wrong with the database!

Yeah, I think you guys are right: We upgraded to new databases over the past few weeks, and I'm afraid that the tag search index is not performing its duties properly across the board. Will have a deeper look and report back.

An update to this thread: The problem was indeed that some photos had not been prepped for search in the exact right way. We're rectifying this slowly, but steadily. This means that a few opernhaus photos are starting to show up in searches -- and more will as we work our way through the entire photo archive. It may take a few days before all of this is settled.

Thank you Steffen! And greetings to all of TEAM23.
