Something Odd with ZAM Search??Follow

#1 Apr 12 2013 at 1:13 PM Rating: Decent
Ok.. I search for Shadowknight Epic Weapon, and I get

Shadowknight (EQ2 Subclass)
Epic Weapon Quests (EQ2)
Category:EQ2 Epic Weapon Quests


Beastlord Epic Weapon (EQ2 Quest Series)
Guardian Epic Weapon (EQ2 Quest Series)
Berserker Epic Weapon (EQ2 Quest Series)...
...and on down the line, many classes listed except Shadowknight, the one I searched for.

Mystic is also missing from the list. If I go to the Epic Weapon Quests page, they are all listed. Going to each page shows that their links and page titles are formatted to match the others, no spelling errors, etc. Searching direct for Mystic Epic Weapon gives similar results.

The pages are there, and seem to be formatted correctly. Can someone with more Wiki XP than me figure out why the Search can't find them directly???

I figured out the problem with it (and the Mystic one). What happened was that it never was categorized as an EQ2 wiki page, so it wasn't showing up on an EQ2 search result. Adding {{EQ2}} to a page like that will fix the problem.

It will take a bit before our search tool grabs it correctly (can be up to 24 hours). Let us know if it keeps happening after that, please! For now, the link is here:

Sorry about the trouble and thank you for letting us know!

Both Shadowknight and Mystic are now showing up on the search results. :)
