I’m sure this has come up before but I would like it when if I searched weaves by name and there were more than 50 results, the remaining results were made available.

“Showing Results 1 - 50 of 133 in Weaves.” with no way to get the rest doesn’t quite do it for me.

Can this please be fixed? Smile

I would really like to search by name and have that name be the first one that comes up on a list. There are some times I look for a weave and find every variation and weave that uses it EXCEPT that weave.

I know it's kinda a cop-out, but you could try other search engines (depending upon the complexity of the query).

Google allows the "site=" parameter to search only inside a domain.
"site:http://www.mailleartisans.org/weaves/weavedisplay.php celtic" would correctly search all weave entries for the term celtic. I've used this method in the past because certain variant families have made it impossible to search this library.
My favorite part about this approach is that you can switch to image search and it will only show you the weave images.

It's not perfect, though. Somehow "similar tags" bleed into the results while never actually containing the text.

As for MusicMan's comment, it may be advantageous to change the "Search Anywhere" to "Search Title".

Thanks for the suggestion I will try it out.

That’ll do nicely for the time being. Thank you.
