Just going through older posts, and realized I forgot to post that this has been fixed (a while ago)

I doubt that Google skips any words that have the formatting you describe, Google actually indexes Flash, PDF and JavaScript now, so they're obviously indexing as much as possible, so skipping valid HTML makes no sense.

The search on MaplePrimes is powered by Maplesoft's Google Mini server.

It uses the same algorithm as Google proper, which does work in mysterious ways.

You can see the raw results from the Google Mini here:

http://search.maplesoft.com/search?q=site:http://www.mapleprimes.com+cipher&btnG=Maplesoft+Site+Search&entqr=0&ud=1&sort=date:D:L:d1&output=xml_no_dtd&site=default_collection&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&client=default_frontend&proxystylesheet=default_frontend

And actually doing the same query with Google proper gets different results

http://www.google.ca/search?sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8&q=site:http://www.mapleprimes.com+cipher#q=site:http://www.mapleprimes.com+cipher&hl=en&prmd=iv&ei=wuAITfuLDMianAe6yaBU&start=0&sa=N&fp=b2d6c32a20d10150

But it still misses the "_%{F2M2z....." thread.

@Christopher2222 both @bthur and myself have tried and we cannot reproduce the behavior you describe here. Can you please try again to see if you are still seeing the problem?

If you still see it, please post detailed steps on how to reproduce it. 

Thanks for your help,

Will

The applications that are displayed when you search for Maple 6, Maple 7, and Maple 8 are current applications that have also been tested in Maple 10 or greater.

You can click on the "click here" underneath 'Displaying applications" to see the archived applications for your search.

For example, here are the archived applications for Maple 6.

It appears that many applications are not being listed when doing a search for specific versions of Maple using the application center search. 

In fact, there are 189 active applications that are associated with Maple V that should appear in the list. 

One way you can find Maple V applications, is to use our Google Mini's search instead, this search term lists all pages containing "Maple V" within the application center.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we will be looking into it further.

I have fixed the problem again. And I believe I have fixed the issue that causes this to keep happening. As before, please let me know if it happens again.

I converted this comment into a Post as I believe it deserves its own thread. More people will see it as a Post instead of a comment on an old thread.

@Doug Meade Yes, my answer is that (as far as I know) MapleNet does not allow this based on security reasons. Loading the JDB over the internet is dangerous as it would allow potentially malicious code to be injected into the Maplet.

By web service I mean a simple page that your Maplet could load to get the data from the database. For example, if your Maplet needs to load up a list of people's names with a search parameter. The Maplet could load this URL from your server:

http://myserver/loadnames.php?term=will

Then the PHP page would list off the results

It would be simple for you to parse the results in your Maplet, and then make use of that data.
