    Q: Can there be a visual indication that a limit is being applied once it's submitted? In other words, once the Update button is clicked on a limiter, the only indication that something is happening is that--depending on your browser--there is a 'spinner' graphic in the browser's title bar or tab. It would be nice if an "Updating results..." graphic appeared center screen while results are updating, similar to the "Loading..." graphic that appears when the Preferences window is loading.

    Q: If you pull up a Detailed Record using a Permalink, you get the detailed record, but no way to conduct a search from there. (i.e., the toolbar and search box are not there). Is this by design? (submitted 8/18/2010)

    Several connectors (African American Studies Center, LexisNexis and the Oxford databases) consistently fail to establish a connection and appear with the yellow alert icon next to them. (submitted 8/20/2010)
    Resolution:
    Pending...Resolved 9/1/10 - LexisNexis is resolved, and the others are due to our concurrent use licenses with the vendors. Searching in SuperSearch uses up a license seat, so these databases are often unavailable because our limit is being reached.
    Problem:
    When a databases is selected in the Integrated Search panel (right-hand list), some of the databases and their checkboxes are cascading, almost like they're nested lists. (submitted 8/20/2010)

    questionsOutstanding Questions:
    Q: Can the Integrated Search Connectors (right margin) be organized/sorted by--and display--the number of results? (submitted 8/18/2010)

    Q: Why are Integrated Search Connectors a separate list? Can they be combined with the Databases cluster on the left? (submitted 8/18/2010)

    Q: Why don't cluster limits (Subject, Source Type, etc.) "stick" like refinements (Full Text, Peer-Reviewed, etc.) do when a new search is performed? (submitted 8/18/2010)
    A: 9/7/2010 - Per Diane Moodie, there is an Service Issue written for this. We will be notified when it is fixed. Pending...
    Q: Are there any plans to change the structure of searching with index tags to require additional syntax? In other words, searches with common words like "is" or "an" retrieve no results--unless they're in quotes--because those are index tags. However, it seems counterintuitive to require basic users to use special search syntax in order for their search to work. (submitted 8/18/2010)

    In EbscoAdmin, we don't have Language as a limiter, but we subscribe to a number of databases to which it applies. Can we have Language added to our list of limiters? (submitted 8/18/2010)
    Resolution:
    9/7/2010 - Per Diane Moodie, there is an Enhancement Request written for this; we will be notified when it is incorporated into the product.

    Problem:
    When only 1 result is found (or when the search results list is sufficiently short), the display gets a little funky in the margins. (see {file:///C:/Users/100026%7E1/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot.png} http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?direct=true&db=bth&site=eds-live&bquery=TI+Shrinking+Merger+Arbitrage+Spread). It seems to be caused by the CSS styles being applied to the custom footer section. (submitted 8/18/2010)
    Resolution:
    9/7/2010 - Ebsco can't replicate this issue.
