Hi All,

When trying to look up all sites with purpose classified as "conference", the results do not appear to be correct.

Screenshot and video of conference filter for sites. When filtering sites by conference purpose recent sites should appear, including the NSSHL site and the template site, both of which have been recently active and listed as a "conference".

I think this may be a bug in the search function?

  • Category name set to Blogs (BuddyPress)
  • Status changed from New to Testing Required

  • Target version set to 1.18.10

Thanks for the report. I was able to track this down to a typo in the way that the Sites directory filter queries work. Fixed in

For debugging purposes I needed to test on the production site, so the fix is live. Can you please confirm it before I close the ticket out?

Thanks, Boone.

Yes, the filtering by purpose>conference appears to be working correctly now. Thanks!
