"Out of Stock" under product search results, when product has modifiers - search

So we make changes to a product, specifically adding modifiers, and when you search for said product in the front end, it comes up out of stock. The inventory is fine, but we tested it, and when removing the modifiers, it goes back to normal. Heard of this before on a custom "Cornerstone" theme on BigCommerce?
We looked through coding, and the theme. Support couldn't help us and needed some more assistance. Fully capable of fixing this issue on our own, just need some guidance. Modifiers were tested on and off, and the stock under search results change.
Thanks 😊


Shortcut: Move an item to the top of the backlog

According to the documentation, I should be able to move an item to the top of the backlog via CTRL + Home. I am able to do it manually via drag-and-drop, but the shortcut doesn't seem to work. Do you guys have problems with the shortcuts or am I doing something wrong?
I'm able to reproduce your issue, and I have submitted a feedback at link below, please follow the link for any update.:
Update from product team:
We have created a bug for the engineering team to address as time
permits. Because of the nature of the issue, it is going to be a lower
priority bug for us. But we hope to get it addressed in the next few
This only applies to the Boards:
You can use the following keyboard shortcuts from any Kanban board, that is, when working from Boards>Boards or Work>Board page.
...so unfortunately it does not work in the Backlog, only in the Sprint Backlog.

How do I get rid of the side bar in sharepoint?

I am currently in the process of redesigning my company's brand space in order to make it more accessible and have a higher aesthetic appeal.
What I am trying to do is make our default page simply 4 hyperlink images of flags which will lead visitors for files for specific countries.
The main conflict is that I cannot find a way to get rid of the side bar on the left that contains the quick links to different areas of the Sharepoint site. I am looking to have a very basic lay out and we will not miss the functionality of the side bar.
Any advice would be much appreciated, thank you.
There are many ways to do it. One of them is given below:

SharePoint window is minimized on opening

i face the following problem, when opening a delegate window, for example to upload a document to a document library i get the following screen size:

Ofcourse this is not desired, my question is what settings i have to adjust to get a normal dialog box.
Any questions or comments about my question are appreciated.
I've seen this many times in my SharePoint site.
We had problems with others browser, we had to explaint our customer, "since it's a Microsoft tool, you'll have to use IE"
Bu that was just part of the problem, seems to be a CSS problem, you'll have to do a script to make the users to use IE 8.
I'm sorry, i know this doesn't help too much, but we have like a year working with SharePoint, and seems a too expensive tool for all the problems it cause, because we also had to deal with the sinchronization of profiles, but that's another story that cost around a month and a lot of money on consulters).

Ideas for educating users into typing url in address bar instead of google

My Google analytics shows the second most used keyword to access my site is the url of the site. This doesn't particularly surprise me, but I wondered if any of you have tried educating your users out of this (i.e. detecting search term from referrer and showing a popin encouraging them to create bookmarks etc.) or is it just a waste of effort or likely to annoy.
I was watching someone the other day and discovered one possible reason why people do this. If you try clicking in the address bar and click twice instead of once, then type your url, you get a big mess. Far easier to type into the nice empty google search box (which is also selected by default). So basically you have the choice between:
Type > Enter > Click
BadClick > Type > Enter > "Bugger!" > Click > Type > Enter
Similarly, Microsoft noted long ago that many people just type search queries into the address bar. If there are essentially between two and four unlabeled text boxes on a browser window (address bar, search box, maybe Google start page, toolbars, etc.) don't expect the user to find the right one when they should.
As long as they end up where they wanted to they couldn't care less.
Google Chrome did the right thing imho by merging at least the search and the address bar again.
for most people, google is the internet.
Focus your efforts somewhere else, like providing good contents. It does not matter how they get there.
Good luck :) Most of internet users may even not realize if the address bar gets removed from their browser. Typing a URL is far too technical.
I'm not sure anything can be done. Users are known to be extremely stubborn in their habits.
One my fellow googles for the login page of his online-banking system, being too lazy to type it in or bookmark it. That scares me a lot. It only takes for someone to manipulate search results even for a day or so to hijack the credentials.
I suggest you ignore the matter. With luck, if they google enough for your site, then google will start to show the name of your site in suggestions as your type which is rather nice.
I've tried to encourage the use of a browser at work to access the data I put on the company intranet. It's proving difficult — they would much rather open My Computer and drill down through many levels of folders, while muttering 'Where was that file? What was it called again?'
I prefer the idea of web pages on an intranet site, with images, hyperlinks, etc, but I have to be careful not to use the term 'browser' since people don't really know what it means. For example, I demonstrated the site to one colleague by telling her to start 'Internet Explorer', then I typed the URL, rather than explain it to her. When the web page opened, she said 'Oh wow, what program is this?'
I've gone to some trouble to use 'friendly URLs' — no complex query strings, but it was probably a waste of time. I'm sure no-one types them in and uses bookmarks/favorites instead.
If the address bar disappeared, it wouldn't be missed by the majority of Internet users, and there's a Google/Yahoo/whatever search tool in the corner of each page.

Is it ok not to have a button for a search box?

I was wondering if it was ever ok not to have a submit button (Ok, Go or Search for example) near a search box in Web pages.
I know that hitting enter is much faster and that it will perform the search.
However, is it an accepted convention for the average non tech savvy user or only for the tech community?
For example, the search box here at stackoverflow doesn't have a submit button, but I don't think anyone is complaining (and I sure don't).
On the other hand, someone suggested using Google as an example: would people notice if the buttons were removed?
I just started reading Don't Make Me Think by Steve Krug and he mentions that every search box should have something that tells me I can click on it to launch the search.
Your thoughts?
Why you should have a button:
Not everyone knows they can hit
enter, so you are leaving some less
savvy people out in the cold.
Some devices like phones and consoles may not have a way to submit without a button. The PC based browser is still dominant but don't assume it is the only way people access your site.
You may not have a button if (both conditions must be satisfied):
Your audience is tech savvy (as on SO)
You provide a visual cue that the search box actually is a search box
By adding text inside it mentioning it should be used to search
By adding an icon inside the box
Generally I would think that hitting enter is a shortcut to submit rather than the primary means.
I think it depends on your target market. If you are StackOverflow it's not too hard too think they know how to use a browser (using a back button on a browser to navigate is a similair design convention) and pressing Enter = submit for search.
However if your target market is say mechanics (no offence to mechanics) that don't use a browser/computer often then look at how Google does it (and they target the broadest scope) - they have a button to submit.
There is a middle ground you could look at, which is have a water mark like StackOverflow which tells users "Click here, type in search values and press enter to search" - or something like that (hopefully shorter) where you actually catering for users of all levels.
Whether or not a button is required depends on the audience. Here are issues to consider:
Technically oriented users may not need a button and will usually not have to think about hitting enter to submit a search request.
Conversely non-technical people may not even know it is possible to hit enter to submit a search request. So no amount of thinking might work for them.
There may be technology limitations that require a button. If you expect your audience to be browsing your form from a platform that does not provide an implicit way to submit a search request then you may need to provide an explicit button.
So essentially you need to know your audiences and determine where the edge cases lie and how critical they are. Using SO as an example, it is directed at technical users so an explicit button probably isn't required. However for a site like google where you need to be accessible to every single user using every possible platform, a clear explicit search button is a must.
"Don't Make Me Think" - so gimme a button.
There will always be someone using the application for the first time; don't make them think either. And your screen shouldn't be so fussy that it is impossible to fit the button in comfortably - that would indicate a different set of problems.
I think for a non-tech person some sort of submit button is needed. Think about people who don't use computers very much. They often click all of the buttons needed instead of hitting enter because they don't realize enter does the same thing. My opinion...if it isn't for tech guys only then it should be as simple as possible.
It depends on your audience. Steve's audience is everybody. Majority of which are so far from IT you'd need a telescope to see them. If your auditory is a single user, you might skip all clues: button (with or w/o names), in-box label.
For my own login window I leave two fields: no labels, no buttons, no javascript to tell you which one is which. But that's not a public project.
A while ago there was an article on Smashing Magazine about this.
There were some alternatives like a looking glass or another icon, but basically there is always a button, or something which represents it.
Having a button makes it clearer that the text field is a search field. Merely having the text field itself indicate this in its contents is unsufficient.
