"turns them into two"
Oops, not thinking straight. Of course it turns them into two. Two of them are in the same topic. All is well!

My bad, wasn't using that. However, when I do use it, I get three results and collapse mysteriously turns them into two. An improvement, though!

Yes. I used "searching the beta archives"
It produced two results, and when collapsed, shrunk down to zero.
 
Hmmm, it's working for me. Please make sure you're using the test instance (it will say "TEST VERSION" at the top of the page). If that's not it, which browser are you using?

Thanks,

Hello,

I think I've fixed it. Sure, it's gonna work now, I believe it! :-) Please try out the test server: https://groups.io/settest/pagination

Thanks!

I tried it a couple of seconds ago, and got "the search produced no topics" after collapsing a search in quotes that did correctly return messages.

Still a glitch when the search is in quotes, "wipers won't stop".  Using Collapse returns all topics in the group.  I thought maybe it was related to the apostrophe, but even something like "sale" returns all topics.  I didn't do much other checking.

Bah. You're right. Still broke. Working on it.

Found a gremlin this morning.  I went to a group and searched for "wipers won't stop" with/without quotes.  Found 27/29 messages, selected Collapse Topics and got 0 results.  Search box had changed to Wipers+won%27t+stop.


This was a tough gremlin to chase down, but I think I have done it. I ended up touching a lot of the pagination code throughout the site. While I have tested it, I'm not ready to generally release it yet. So, I've set up a test web server.

If you have a few minutes, I would appreciate it if you (the general beta@ you, not just Duane) would go to https://groups.io/settest/pagination to use the test server. You'll know you're using the test server because at the top of the page it will say 'TEST VERSION'. Please play around with paging throughout the various parts of your groups, do searches including funny characters, etc, and let me know if you see anything weird.

To get back to the normal site, just click on the 'TEST VERSION' text in the header.

Thanks!

According to the changelog from 8-May-21there was a change on 5-May that suggests this was made to work with Infinite Scroll.  Perhaps worth following up with Mark.  There may be a distinction between a list of database tables and the rows within an individual table.

I have struggled with the Database problem for some time until I happened to read a message in GMF a few weeks ago and decided to change my settings.

Much prefer the 100 per page as it works for Files, Photos etc as well.

re: "Infinite Scroll":

It also doesn't work for Activity log listings.  It reverts to 20 items instead of infinite.

But it does work for the Member list, and Message list.

Maybe it's just OCD, but I like it when things are consistent.

(I am uncertain whether "Infinite Scroll" is actually a useful setting.  I find that I always go back to "100 Items" after trying it out.)

Here is a somewhat related thing, which has also nagged me ...   Sorry as it may be a little off-topic.

One of the user options is the one for "Items Per Page", which is in Account > Preferences > Display Preferences.  The choices are:
  • 20 Items (the initial default),
  • 50 Items,
  • 100 Items, and
  • Infinite Scroll.
These settings apparently affect Message listings, File listings, Member listings, Activity log listings, and probably elsewhere.

However, the "Infinite Scroll" choice does not seem to work for File listings.  Choosing "Infinite Scroll" causes File listings to revert to 20 Items per page.  That's odd.

Is there a reason for that, or is it a bug?

Can you add user-settings for the default File list order?

That is, when displaying a list of Files (in a group's Files section), currently the default list order is alphabetically by filename.  Could we (users) choose a different default order?  (In the user's Account Preferences.)

I think these choices would be useful:
  • Filename order -- currently this is the only default
  • Increasing Date order, newest at bottom
  • Decreasing Date order, newest at top
perhaps with an additional choice (a checkbox?) to group Folders and Files separately (e.g., list all Folders first).  Again, what I'm asking for, is a way to specify these as our default list order, so that I don't need to click "Date" every time.

This has long bothered me.  I often go to Files several times daily, and I need to click on the Date header every single time, every single folder I look in; and if I make any changes there, I need to do it again, and again.  Now, members in my group asked for it too, so I want to make it an official request.
