The search problem is a library bug that only allows you to choose search hits of 10, 25, 50, or 100. The behaviour certainly should not be like this - the first attachment (Search.pm) should replace admin/GT/SQL/Search/NONINDEXED/Search.pm. This doesn't affect people who are using an indexed search for the Post table.

As for private messages, there are a couple of bugs present - the reason you are getting the error is a template problem. If you search the template for "Switch to Basic Editor", you will find an <input type="submit" ...> with a value of "Switch to Basic Editor". The name of the submit button should have the following added to the end (Note: If you prefer, you can just use the attached template):

Code:


;message=<%parent_msg_id%>


The other problem that I found was that the message writing screen using the basic editor does not have a button to switch to the advanced editor. This fix for this is to add the following, after the quote, b, u, i, etc. buttons:

Code:


<%if is_ie and ie_version >= 5.5%>

<br><br>

<input type="submit" class="button" name="do=<%this_do%>;advanced_editor=1;advanced_editor_switch=1;message=<%parent_msg_id%>" value="Switch to Advanced Editor">

<%endif%>
I've also attached the fixed include_message_common_write.html and include_message_html_common_write.html (whew, that's a long filename) to this post. They should replace the templates of the same name in your admin/templates/default directory.
