Tagged topics not showing in filtered results

Question

Just something I noticed today as I was properly marking some threads for testings. Some threads that are tagged are not showing in the results. For example:

 

https://forum.step-project.com/topic/3813-amidianborn-imperial-forts-by-cabal/ (marked with the testing prefix)

 

https://forum.step-project.com/tags/forums/testing/ (not showing up in results)

 

I should mention that it was tagged with 'testing' in the Topic Tags. When I deleted that tag and added the proper Topic Prefix (testing), it disappeared from the results and as not shown back up. I've waited all day for this think it might be a forum cache issue and will resolve itself, but it was yet to do that. This has effect multiple mods that I added the correct prefix to today.

 

I did see the option to rebuild the cache in the AP, but didn't want to touch that as I'm not positive the issue is the cache.

The addon we are using is not very friendly in this regard. I've noticed that changing a prefix most often times invalidates the search completely, and the items never show back up, at least in the immediate term. The application extends the default tag system, so who knows what it's doing and why it has a hard time with this.

 

Rebuilding the tag cache is not viable for this issue. I believe it to be a bug in the addon.

So the fix would be to add the topic tags back in?

Prefixes are tags, they are just an extension of them. If you look at the threads, they have the tag of "testing" on them. Which is why I'm calling this a bug.

Then it must be associated with thread/post cache somehow. If that is the case, it could take some time for those caches to get updated with tag changes.

it is partially cache and partially 'bug' I think. There is also the issue of Prefixes not always showing correctly in the recently updated threads on the top page of the forums.

 

IPB v4 should significantly improve the default tagging system, and the developer of Tags & Prefixes already has stated that he will update his add-on to support IPB v4 where it remains lacking.

 

We shall see once IPB finally releases this century.

We'll need time to play with IPB v4 before going live. Ideally, I hope default capabilities will be sufficient and we won't need to rely on an addon.

I noticed it usually takes a day or so for the testing tag search to include newly added items. Cache needs to be refreshed, I imagine.

Please do not add a 'testing' tag for mods in testing ... use the TESTING prefix tag so that there is a visual marker (edit post > use full editor). This also effectively adds the 'testing' tag.

 

The addon for tags & prefixes does not capture changes to existing tags (or maybe even new tags) immediately. It takes a day or two ... or a week, but changes eventually update with the tag search functionality. It is an issue with the IPB tags search functionality and buggy integration of AT&P addon ... works, but not immediate.

So to mark a topic for testing, click Edit on the first post in the top then click Use Full Editor. In the full editor, change the Top Prefix to testing, and click Submit Modified Post?
