Anyone having issues today with the advanced search? It just keeps bringing up A names no matter what I type in the search.
Yes!!! [name_m]Just[/name_m] happened to me!
First search the results cut off halfway. It had a “next” page icon, but when I clicked it nothing happened.
When I went to search again, the responses filtered as I typed.
Then the third time, nothing I type registered. [name_m]Even[/name_m] when I hit the “Search” button.
I tried searching with another letter and I didn’t have any problems.
It’s been noted and is being looked into.
[name_m]Can[/name_m] you tell me what you tried to search? Perhaps it’s a more specific issue.
I want to search names meaning ‘heart’
The result I get is the entire database, not names meaning heart
I tried a few times, seems like this happens only with the meaning search. When I searched, for example, ‘names starting with G’ there were no issues.
[name_f]Do[/name_f] you see this with other name meanings @ethelmary ? I tried with several different meanings and I’m only seeing this with “heart”. I wonder if it’s something to do with the heart symbols…
“to fly” and “fly” also gave the same result
Some other meanings work fine
This happened to me earlier when searching for boy names starting with EL but the search results went back to normal when I refreshed the page. I tested it again just now but it didn’t happen again - I got the correct search results right away this time.
Oh well, they work only on my laptop. All name meanings give the same result on my phone. Refreshing the page sometimes helps
For example, I am trying to search girl names ending in cy. It is still bringing up the whole database this morning.
Does it still happen on refresh?
i’m having a similar issue, i was looking for sanskrit boys names and it was bringing up the whole database, but then i tried searching two-syllable girls names and that worked fine.
OK, looks like I need to play around with this and try to work out if there are any patterns. Thanks for the info everyone!
Yes, when I go to refresh, it says no names match your criteria for a second and then it switches back to the database.
Thanks for testing!
I was searching “Boy” Names that “Contain ‘Nat’”. That was the first time I ever had the issue. I thought it was just a weird glitch until I saw the thread and thought maybe it was a site issue.
For me the bigger issue was the “Next” page that led to nowhere.
