Mark Posts Old doesn't work in Search

Postby billynews » Tue Jun 14, 2011 2:18 am

Hi,

since a few versions "Mark Posts Old" is broken for at least Internet Search Results.

- execute a Search
- mark some posts as old (Del)
- execute same search again

Best regards,

billy

What version? It seems to be working here RC2+. That information is stored in a DB3 file. It's possible it's become corrupted.

DownloadMarker.db3. It stores old status for non-headers and downloaded status.

sorry, didn't help.
Newsbin has created a new file but behaviour is the same.

Btw - pause downloads, add Search Results to downloads, remove Search Results
from downloads does work (I don't care if status is Downloaded or Idle/Old, I only
need a different colour).

If I add a Search Result to my downloads Record Count in Table
DownloadState_V2 does change but not if I mark a Result as old - neither
in DownloadState_V2 nor in IsOld_V1.

Kind regards

sqlite> select count(*) from IsOld_V1;
2179

I selected an entire search tabs worth of files and hit the delete key.

sqlite> select count(*) from IsOld_V1;
2620

Then I did a new search. Ended up with 2000 items in the search tab, selected them all, right clicked and "Mark Posts Old"

sqlite> select count(*) from IsOld_V1;
4620

So, I'm not clear what you're seeing.

Did you ever revisit this? I'm wondering why you're seeing what you are.

jep - same in RC3.

I'm planning to make a fresh install on my Notebook, but I was too lazy so far.
I will post my results after I've made this test.

P.S.: Adding Search Results to the Wishlist marks them persistently as old too.

You're using just delete right? Not shift-delete? I'm trying to reproduce it here with no success. I do a search, select the top 40 lets say, delete, then restart and search again.

The fact adding to download/wish works suggests that it's simply not getting the right message to tag them old.

yes - tried it from the Menu, Context Menu and by just clicking Delete.

but something is happening.
Don't forget, the post are getting marked as old. The issue is, it's not persistent. So maybe only the insert to the DB is
missing or failing!?

I've made the test on my notebook:

If I hit delete in the Internet Search I'm getting a message "ERROR - Resolver: Unable to open Source Data file".
(I do not get this message on my Desktop).
Post are getting marked as old, but if I execute the search again they are new again.

But I have to say it wasn't really a fresh install.
There was a very old Gigabyte version installed on the notebook, which I've uninstalled before installing RC3.
I said "Yes" to all questions from the Uninstaller. Nevertheless, the RC3-Installer had still found the settings for
Giganews.

I've found it :D

If I check "Hide Delete and tagging progress bars" in Options - Switches everything works fine
If I turn it off again, it doesn't work. :shock:

P.S.: I don't care about the error on my notebook.

Quade, that sounds familiar with my issue of marking items old not being persistent - but in my watch topics instead of search. I've been using 6.82 in the meantime since mark post old there IS persistent.

As far as I can tell, this option doesn't exist in 6.90RC3.
