v. 4.2.2 - Many searches result in a list of surnames at the top of the screen, followed by ".... WIRE, WRIGHT" /> " and then the normal screen.
Can you provide more details:
What kind of search are you doing? From where is the search launched?
Is the error showing on the screen or on paper? If it's on the screen, a screen shot would be helpful.
All apparent errors appear on screen.
Error1 from "search" box on top right under theme change.
Error2 from "search" option on menu.
Error3 from "search" box on top right.
Doesn't seem to make any difference which search button I use, but the results vary on what name I search.
For example, a search for "Andrew Jackson" produces NO errors. But a search for "adkins" or "thomas adkins" seems to produce errors, but the errors seem to vary.
I will run some more searches and see if I can identify a pattern of the errors.
I wonder if this is linked somehow to this bug:
Thomas - is this specific to one theme, or all of them? What about different browsers?
All things we need to check, because most of us are failing to reproduce the problem.
I use Firefox 3.5 and the Simply Blue theme, in both search boxes, but it also occurs in IE and in the Minimal theme But it seems to occur ONLY when the search name is one of the "Most Common Surnames." Still checking various.
"it seems to occur ONLY when
the search name is one of the "Most Common Surnames."" - I think that does confirm it is related to that other bug report. It seems to be connecting the search to the header info, meta tags etc.
The common surnames are now no longer included in the html header's meta-keywords tag
This may fix the problem. Can you check with latest SVN and confirm?
