Seeing new look today, nearly unuseable in a practical sense

The new format will be just fine, some of these old guys just don't like change! It seems to be working faster for me. The bugs will get fixed, Rome wasn't built in a day.

Couple of minor things I noticed, in My Auctions under Items I won and Items I didn't win, to 2 lists match and I didn't win them all. The last auction I won on April 7th isn't there. I would also like to see the classified listing back in alphabetical order like before.

Thanks for the hard work!

Thank you!

I didn't give it a work out but I did test searching for "moonlight" in the focuser category as before which wasn't working.  It now appears fixed at least in that limited test.

On another note my avatar wasn't displaying but the signatures were.  I updated the avatar and it now displays properly but the signature doesn't. Jumbled with coding.....

Tried a search again today ~noon PST, eyepiece forum, searched on 'Nagler', 'For Sale', last 30 days, include sold in results, still getting many what I consider wrong results, more like a listing of all ep's for sale.  Hope this reporting helps.

One thing from my days, maybe check the use of any wildcard delimiters in the way being passed to DB as search string (it was usual to include them at start, end, or both, or use in a 'like' sense) if you include them in the code?  seemed Ok when i searched the refractor forum using 'TEC' as the search term, saw it also included 'tech', pretty normal unless using case.  If using case, check the trap door code?
