No research results are shown. What’s the problem?


#44

Can you describe what you are doing?
What search term are you using?
Since when is it not working anymore?
What browser/os are you using?
What is the result?
Perhaps provide a screenshot?

We are not having a generalized problem regarding search, it is working perfectly for myself and others I know of. Did you try clearing your cache?


#45

The same goes for me but i found a work around on my chrome app on Android, if you search any term it will say no results, but just refresh the page and it shows results.


#46

Hmm, is anybody else experiencing a problem with search? @Devolution and @noprop, can you please answer each of the questions above?
To be on the safe side, I updated our software stack to the latest version, just in case we’ll need support. It is the problem still persisting?

Edit: Ok, I think I see that there was a problem with multi-word search, while single word works fine. I temporarily corrected, please let me know if search works for you now.


#47

All fixed for me now @awor thank you :grinning:


#48

Had also the problem with no search results, fixed now.

There is still no donation banner on this forum. Are you guys still working on that or not? I think its a strategic mistake not to present the rational alternative to throwing money down highly speculative rabbit holes (the alternative is funding the foundation of course).

RE my 23 and me results. I am currently spending every penny on a new company I am building. As soon as more cash becomes available I will do the test. Currently donating monthly to the foundation through paypal though.

We will be putting more focus on calling for donations once Baylor comes out. I am hopeful that this study will be quite revealing, and provide a better direction for next steps. Unfortunately, the current funding opportunities are not much more than rabbit holes either. I am not a believer of doing things just for the sake of doing “something”, but rather of doing the right thing at the right time - specially given that our financial resources are very limited. I am confident that we will have a clearer picture of what the next steps should be in the foreseeable future. At that time you can rest assured that @axolotl and myself will voice our clear opinions and do what needs to be done to encourage funding of studies that make sense.


#51

Well setting up a monthly donation comes with the expectation that the foundation only funds worthwhile projects. So I dont see how the current lack of worthwhile projects has anything to do with my request to encourage donations through a banner on the forum.

In preparation for the upcoming survey launch, we need to perform an upgrade of our database server. The upgrade will be performed this weekend (Nov 24/25) and will result in a longer downtime of the main website and helpdesk system.

The forum will not be affected and will remain online under the direct url https://forum.propeciahelp.com
