Bug fixing | July 11, 2005

Bug Fixing.

I’ve fixed some bugs with the Gender switching options (I never used them myself, just set them on the initial search.)

I’ve added options to change the online status of the search as well, and discovered a nasty bug.

The nasty bug.

I’ve found a problem where if the relevant part of the query string isn’t actually present, it just doesn’t work.

What I’m going to do about it.

Nothing at the moment, everything else works fine. I’m not releasing the new version until I hear complaints that the problems with the old version is actually causing people problems.

Once I start receiving complaints (use the comments for feedback), I’ll get around to fixing the annoying bug, and add the feature of being able to bypass the starting search page altogether. Oh yeah, and I’ll get around to making it so when you alter the search it takes you to the first page of results.

Workarounds for now.

Simply set the gender at the beginning of your search as usual, I don’t think that many people would need to change the gender in the middle of the search anyway. Same with changing the online status. For those of you who won’t do that but won’t complain either, male gender is set with &.g=1 female is set with &.g=2 no gender is set with &.g=0 online only is set with &.ol=y .

When the new version gets released, online & offline status will be set with &.ol=n ,even though that doesn’t actually do anything on the yahoo side.
