### Some options in the Mathopolis search are broken

Let's say I want to find a quiz on Mathopolis about derivatives.
I go to the search page, type in "derivative," and set Calculus as the subject.
If, however, I search in all subjects, a lot of results come up.
Same goes for Physics. If I search "waves" in physics no results come up, but they come up if I search in all subjects.
Is this a bug?

hi pi_cubed

I cannot repeat what you are trying.  Please post the url for when you start searching in each case.

Thanks,

Bob

ps.  I don't have editing control for the site, so I may not be able to address any bug anyway.

The search I'm referring is here: https://www.mathopolis.com/questions/quiz-search.php.
I can't send the link since the search is a form submitted through a POST request, but these are the parameters I used in the first post:
1. Name: derivative, Subject: Calculus
2. Name: derivative, Subject: (all)
3. Name: waves, Subject: Physics
4. Name: waves, Subject (all)

I was hoping you could forward it to MathsIsFun.

### Re: Some options in the Mathopolis search are broken

I'm still not getting there.  I started with  MIF in 2010 and joined the forum shortly afterwards.  Occasionally I try questions from the MIF pages and I know they use Mathopolis but I've never actually created a username for Mathopolis until just now.

I don't see any post option.  Nor a search option.

So I still don't understand where on the internet you are.

Sorry, I forgot to include the link.
Also the "POST Request" I'm talking about is not referring to some sort of post page, it's a internet internal (if you want to read more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/POST_(HTTP)).
