Not working? (7 posts)

    I installed the plugin, configured the widget, and saw my categories in the sidebar.

    However, when I selected a subcategory and clicked Search, the URL didn't change; I remained on the same category listing.

    Is there something else I need to do to activate this?

    So when you say you selected a subcategory and remained on the same listing, that implies you did a search prior, right? And does that mean a search with a category selected that is a supercategory/ancestor of that subcategory? I'm just asking because if a supercategory is selected, of course it will display all posts in that category and all its descendant categories, and then when a subcategory is clicked, if all the categories listed also belong to that subcategory, then nothing will change. So I guess I should ask: If you select its supercategory only and search, do you get extra results, and if not, are there posts belonging only to the supercategory or to the subcategory's siblings and not to the subcategory?

    Another thing to check: Does the page actually reload when you click "search"? I just want to make sure it's really being submitted.

    Also, no there isn't anything else to do other than make sure javascript is enabled in your browser. I do appreciate feedback though, so if you do find a flaw, please let me know, as this 2.0 release is very new and hasn't yet been as thoroughly tested as its predecessor. In that same vein, I hope you do not rush to click the "It's broken" button on the plugin listing, and thank you if you haven't yet done so.

    Yes, I will be happy to look into this and get back to you. Thank you for being so responsive.

    I reinstalled and actived the plugin. I selected a category that has over 50 posts and clicked on "Search"

    The status bar shows another page loading. The next thing that happens is a partial page load; when I look at the source code, it ends part way through the head code.

    Follow-up. The partial page load was the result of another PHP script.

    So, whenever I select a category and click Search, the result is a return to the page/post/archive I was viewing previously.

    I just released version 2.1 which has some bugfixes. Maybe this helps? Sorry for not getting back sooner, we just had a baby!

    Congratulations!

    I'll give 2.1 a try.
