I have spent this week coordinating some major pieces of the "Massive Migration Project," while also improving the user interface of certain areas of the site.

Of particular note are a few long-time, lingering bugs in the "Thumbnail History" search page that have been corrected now. We will keep watch for any new issues that might show up, but so far, testing has shown very positive improvements.

Fixed the following issues:

  • The default history view did not automatically include all completed capture types & sizes
  • In some cases, there were no results (a result of recent request sorting issues)
  • In some cases, results were nowhere near the most recent (far more than 5000 captures)
  • Sometimes searches for full-length (and combinations) would not return any results
  • Searches for "Show items in Queue" would fail for current user only
  • The "View Image" link for users without "Custom Quality" would get an unintended upgrade message from xian

Updates & Additions:

  • Made the "Show errors" & "Show in Queue" options into radio buttons (since no overlap)
  • Added a new option for "Show everything except..." (to undo the selections)
  • Moved the "Specific Error" search field into the main search
    • Now it allows for specific error search from all users
    • This also makes better use of the search parameters screen space

I have spent a few more hours tweaking the results and optimizing the queries.

I have thoroughly tested and found that the results are so much better and more reliable than before. Also, I have managed to get some of the slower queries to return in 2s-7s instead of 45s-60s, which is a vast improvement. Smile

There are still a few slow searches, but those are not searches that you will need to make very often (e.g. specific domains, across any users, and including all of the PRO features).
