Junk Filter
I marked some files as junk which were known to me to be junk files viruses & spam. The strange thing is after I did this when I did searches for other files I had files showing up as junk files that were in no way associated with the files I had selected as junk files.

The files in question were known to me to be good files. I did a bitzi on them and they were known good files in bitzi. They were in no way associated with the files I had selected as junk not in name or size.

So why is the junk file filter picking them as junk files ?.

Also can change from junk to not junk and the next search it will show up as junk again.

I haven't used it as yet, but you can undo your junk settings in Tools>Options. The junk settings seemed to work for me, but I haven't used it extensively (wind on a mac).

select the files that are not junk and click "Not Junk". The filter has to be trained to you own preferences.

I have done that


Also can change from junk to not junk and the next search it will show up as junk again.

hmm, could be a bug

Maybe, maybe not it just might take it a while to remember what you want a couple of them quit showing up as junk after the 4th time telling it, it was not junk. But others are still showing up as junk. The ones that are still showing up as junk are pretty close in size as the ones I named as junk. What format are they using for the filter name or file size.

Whoops spoke too soon it is back to displaying them as junk. Also the options of show junk at bottom and don't show junk do not appear to work.

From general deduction I am guessing it is filtering by IP address.

This is probably a bug related to one I discussed with LW devs previously. I will notify a developer about it.

Thanks for a confirmation on it. :)

Grandpa have you adjusted the Junk Threshold? I notice LW 4.9.39 now lists this option under Tools>Options>Searching>Junk as compared to 4.9.37 which listed this slider under the search options on the main interface.

Though I must also confirm Grandpa's findings. When trying to filter out virii, & having set it Not to show Junk, it still showed up (but with the trash can beside them.)

I've had to turn off the junk filter in order to get any "What's New" results.

With my current set-up and habits, the filter was more of a hassle, but quite interesting to test, and working around the spam was already habitual :p

Other notes about the 4.9.39 Beta:

--About box needs updating (i.e, Dave Nicponski; Roger Kapsi)

-- command-clicking (OS X) on one of several selected entries should deselect the entry. Instead, it deselects everything else and selects the entry (this is old, like the false drag and drop problem in the downloads panel).

--search results are sorting by case in the name column

--when running as UP and with the filter on, heavy CPU activity somehow was triggering a loss of leaves.

--would be nice if the new look for the search tabs applied also to the pane tabs, status bar icons, scroll buttons, and the like.
