    Hello,

    I tried this author both in Hive 2.0 and Beta Hive
    Olofmoleman

    I found some models in Hive 2.0 but not in Beta hive.

    Hmm. 6 pages is a lot to look through. I have a hunch though. When you searched, did you allow substandard and awaiting update in the results? Check this link out:

    weird it now shows results.


    I think I just used the default one. in Hive 2 its Approved+pending--only

    Edit: maybe I was searching for resource type the guy didnt have. will get back if I can replicate the result.

    Edit: I used to do it with advanced search directly so it search all types by default. Now I tried again and I did not face the problem :|

    @Archian brought it up to me as well that it's not very clear that the results are filtered by approved/pending. I am considering either showing everything the user is allowed to see or showing a bar at the bottom of the results "click here to show x more results from substandard/awaiting update" or similar.

    Well, we have moderation icons to show the status of the resource. We shouldn't limit the search results based on moderation status. It's up to each individual member if they wish to use an awaiting update or substandard resource - which can be clearly identified by looking at the moderation icon.

    So the starting point should be that the search function finds ALL resources with the choosen word - including pending, awaiting update & substandard.

    If not, it should be clearly visible that if the search doesn't find any results. Members should try searching for the same thing in the other respective categories... Which is just annoying.

    that is a fair point. If I can make choice I would let the default options to have them all as selected, but they can be de-selected if the user desired.
    totally agree. something Like
