In recent days I have made a few small improvements to searchmembers:

  1. Map markers with the same geocoordinates are now spaced out instead of hidden.
  2. When a search is complete, the "Loading..." message is replace with "x members displayed of y found" followed by a link to the detailed results below the map.
  3. The left-column action menu has been simplified and made consistent.
  4. Clicking on a member in the result list opens a new window, so that the result list is preserved. Otherwise, an new search would have to be done putting an extra load on the server. The same window is reused when additional members are clicked on.

Currently working on a bug: pictures aren't loading on alpha and test. I suspect that they are on a different path than on my localhost. Waiting for an update to alpha to test.

another bug with searchmembers: IE doesn't show results of a search-query.

  1. Fixed IE problem on searchmembers page reported by micha. There were actually three different problems.

2.Removed feature to display members profiles in the same new window at Philipp's request. Now, a new window or tab opens for each member clicked on in the search results list.

I finally found where the pictures are on the test server.

Uploaded pictures are in /var/www/upload/images, thumbnails created from originals are in /var/www/upload/images/thumbs.

These linux directories must be used for file operations, but the thumbnails are accessed for an HTML image this way:


In other words, there must be some url parsing done to locate the photos.

Now, I await transfer of the modified code on to for final testing. There are also still some words missing in the words table on alpha:

FindPeopleOfferTypeTitle? = Typical offer FindPeopleSortOrder? = Results sort order FindPeopleLimitCount? = Number of results FindPeopleSubmitTextSearch? Search using location text FindPeopleClearMap? = Clear members from map FindPeopleIndicateLoading? = Loading... FindPeopleMembersDisplayed? = members displayed FindPeopleJumpToResults? = jump to detailed results wordOf = of wordFound = found

Hannu set up soft links so that alpha, test, and localhost behave almost alike when retrieving photos. Photos are now found in the pseudo-directory bw/memberphotos (and bw/memberphotos/thumbs), and they can be accessed via the web with

At some point, it would make sense to move memberphotos up one level on all systems (it's currently in the old bw tree).

the option to reduce the number of results limits to 50 even though I select 100 from the dropdown.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from assigned to closed

I fixed the limit problem on test, and did a thorough test. I noticed the Age sort included hidden-age members (at the top of the list, pushing the useful results down the list). Also the Enable/Disable? link was invisible because of missing words. All fixed. Alpha ready.
