Cricket,

This is no crisis, but thought I’d point it out. There is a new review of a Makita circular saw that doesn’t contain a lot of detail. So I did a search for other reviews using “Makita circular” as the search terms. Then I clicked on the reviews only option, and it returned no results. But when I went back to all results, the first one listed was a listing of three reviews, exactly the results I should have gotten when I clicked on reviews only.

Again, no crisis, just something to put in the hopper.

many times it will depend on how the reviewer tagged the posting.

Charles is right, something’s wrong. I just duplicated his search and got the same results. I then tried just searching “Makita” and then clicked on the “reviews” tab. this should have brought up all reviews for “makita”, but there were zero results.

Edit: I just tried it using several other tool brands or types. Nothing comes up in the “reviews” tab. Definitly broken.

Warning: Sarcasm Ahead!

It’s probably DaddyZ’s “review” of the how well the LJ website has been working lately. It’s corrupted the “review” tab and destroyed the search functionality. This is why we can’t have nice things.

Sounds like you need to review Z’s review in the Reviews forum, Pickle.

This is still not working, FYI. Thankfully, the general search still works fine, AFAIK.

NOPE! Still Not Working. BUT all the other Classifications are.

This might be My Computer, haven’t Cleaned it out in awhile but you also seem to Wait & Wait for Google to give you what ever selection you’ve made.

I’m also wondering as Willie has pointed out how many of the Poster in “Reviews” have “Tagged” their Reviews Properly, if at all.

Going to have Look See at that aspect. IF it’s visible.

Had a look. When you initially go into “Reviews” (on site) there is a list of all tools and whatever down the Left Side.

I.E. SAWS: jig saws 25, mitre saws 75, table saws 225, CIRCULAR SAWS 38 & all the other types of saws. Click on Circular saws By time you go 7 Down you’re already 266 Days Old.

There’s a Brown heading that says “View Product Index”. click it, there it is. BUT, I don’t see where you can do anything with it. Click Circular Saws beside it, it sends you right back to the exact page you were on before.

NUFF FOR ME!! ....LOL… PS: The Video Page is all screwed up also. 1/2 to 3/4 of the videos on the right hand side are covered by Ads.

BYE!

Charles, had the same problem earlier searching for countersink reviews. They are there but you can’t find them directly.

Pinto, reviewers can’t tag review posts; might be better if they could.

I will ask the IT guys again what is going on with this.
