Site Updates Completed
All,

I have just applied some updates to modernize the back-end MangaUpdates code. If you find errors, strange behavior or functionality that doesn't appear to work like it did before, please report it here or in the Bugs forum.

The only new feature I added was the addition of the "year" parameter in the "What's New" section of the site. I'm sad to say this was mostly a back-end update, and no fresh new eye candy.

Thanks!

Whenever I perform a search, especially "Search by Description", non-english titles are also included in the results.

Fixed.

Did you delete the lists of series that groups do if you go to their group page on baka updates? I kinda miss that...

thread

» Manick on September 10th, 2013, 5:55pm

Nope, that was very much so a mistake and has been corrected. Thanks for reporting!

thread

» GhostWriter on October 11th, 2013, 2:48pm

The group's series list vanishes when I browse through the recent releases (go to page 2 and so on), can you make it stay permanently?

thread

» tyranid5 on September 10th, 2013, 9:04pm

Was it intentional that when searching in the series info section, by title, that it sorts the results alphabetically? Most relevant use to be at the top and now it's all sorted alphabetically 400 pages or 30 pages depending on the search.

thread

» Manick on September 10th, 2013, 9:10pm

Definitely a mistake. Has been fixed. Thanks

Now, I cannot sort the results by Year unlike earlier (before you fixed it). Is it possible to tweak it such that it still lists the results by Relevance, but we can Sort the results by Year or by Title? Thanks.

thread

» Manick on September 11th, 2013, 6:13am

Items are sorted first by relevance, then by year, then by title... I just checked the old query and it looks identical. Items with the same relevance will be sorted by date (in chunks), so this is possible:

series1: relevance 1 year 2007
series2: relevance 1 year 2006
series3: relevance .9 year 2008
series4: relevance .9 year 2004
series5: relevance .8 year 2009

etc..

However you look at it, it's just wrong.

Each sorting method only switched two results that are next to each other for results that have "fairy tail" in their titles, nothing else.

You can't really call that sorting by year or score... + Why is a Hentai Doujinshi always the first result?

--edit--

Why not just add another sorting method instead?

Relevance | Title | Year | Score

--edit2--

And if you're fixing the Series Info search page already, I'd like to suggest making a small change to the way the Asian characters are being handled by the search:

進撃の巨人 changes to %26%2336914%3B%26%2325731%3B%26%2312398%3B%26%232 4040%3B%26%2320154%3B.

I'd like for the actual Asian titles to work in the search links too. For example:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?stype=title&sea rch=進撃の巨人&orde rby=title - would open the same results as:
http://www.mangaupdates.com/series.html?stype=title&sea rch=%26%2336914%3B%26%2325731%3B%26%2312398%3B%26 %2324040%3B%26%2320154%3B&orderby=title

This would allow using Firefox's open search plugin (selection search) for MangaUpdates to be used on Japanese sites as well.

Yes, I know. It just seemed as good a time as ever to bring it up.

thread

» Manick on September 11th, 2013, 6:02pm

I updated the search to remove sorting on relevance if the &orderby param is set.

It should get what you want, and it's the best i can do on short notice.

Edit: I updated the search to support utf8 titles with stype=utf8title

That works fine now, but I've noticed something else too. When I click on a PM conversation, it keeps on taking me back to the first page of it. Gets a bit confusing when I get a new message and I'm seeing posts on the first page instead of the new message haha.

when you use the manga search box, when the first search screen comes up with the release results and the search a specific section of the website, the releases section is showing results from the earliest results and not the releases that are the most recent.

» kitty1826x on September 12th, 2013, 12:21am

Not sure if it's related to this update? But something is wrong with searching mangas.
It's from the Associated Names part that's the issue.

Example - (Meteor Methuselah)
I would search Meteo Metosera in the search bar, hit go and get a blank page.
(it auto-fills Search Series for __ ; Search Mangaka: __ ;Search Scanlators: ___ ; Submit Search Publishers: ___ with what I was trying to search, same as usual )
If I hit search series the manga pops up.
(In the case of Chotto Friday the associated name and the one on the page show up on that list.)

It's not all associated names that's affected either. If I had searched Immortal rain it would show all the releases like normal.


I checked with 4 different mangas. If you search the associated name it won't show anything, even in the name that's on the page. I know it was working fine on the 8th. (one of the associated names I checked then worked then, and doesn't work now).

thread

» lambchopsil on September 12th, 2013, 12:30am

I just tried with Meteor Methuselah and it seems to work fine

thread

» kitty1826x on September 12th, 2013, 12:38am

Quote from lambchopsil
I just tried with Meteor Methuselah and it seems to work fine

No I was using Meteor Methuselah as an example.
It's associated names are メテオ・メトセ ラ /Immortal Rain /Meteo Metosera /Sao Băng
When searching one of these 5 names only Meteor Methuselah and Immortal rain shows a page of releases. The other three leave a blank page where you would have to hit the 'Search Series" title (Meteo Metosera). In order for it to pop up.

thread

» lambchopsil on September 12th, 2013, 8:21am

It's working as intended. The primary search is for releases, and since no releases have been under those other associated names, they won't show any results. The main search has worked this way for at least the last 6 years

thread

» kitty1826x on September 12th, 2013, 10:06am

Really?
I was pretty sure that if I had done a search under a associated name releases would still show up. It would show up as the primary name.
Example - If I had searched highschool debut I would see releases for Koukou Debut which was fine since I could only remember highschool debut and not the proper spelling of Koukou Debut, but was able to recognize it by that name.
Or at least I thought it was like that ....


Also what about the multiple showings after the secondary search? Did it always show all the associated(or some) , and primary name in the search? Again If you search highschool debut in the secondary search it pops up 3 times.

thread

» Manick on September 12th, 2013, 5:50pm

I'll check it out.

thread

» Manick on September 12th, 2013, 7:51pm

So, I can't possibly see how this worked for you in the past. The old code doesn't even search on associated names.

thread

» kitty1826x on September 12th, 2013, 7:56pm

Really huh? I guess I was mistaken. I really could have swore if I did a search under an associated name it would show the releases under the primary name. Now I wonder if I'm crazy heh. Sorry for all the trouble.

Also what about the multiple posting in the secondary search? Or what that always like that as well? (still somewhat new this site)

thread

» Manick on September 12th, 2013, 8:01pm

It always did that. It shows the associated names as italics, and the regular titles as normal text.

Edit: I just tried a search with an assoc name on the dev site (pre update) and it didn't return any results. Not that having that wouldn't be a good thing, but we're focusing on getting bugs work out right now.

thread

» kitty1826x on September 12th, 2013, 8:31pm

I did think it was a bug, but I was mistaken. Sorry for all the trouble, but thank you for taking the time to clear up this misunderstand of a bug.

An example of this is when i try to go to page 3 of my wish list it sends me to page 3 of my reading list. This happens with every list and some don't even show the page numbers at the bottom.
