Thank you very much! Now I understand my fault.
When I logged in general-files.com all my search settings activated and this feature is working good (search results filtered right).
But when I try to search something at general-community.com after settings are saved in me profile, search results are not filtered like my settings directs. Now I will primarily go to general-files.com after saving of my settings, because filtering is available only at this domain.
You asked: "3. after saving settings do you see a beige highlited main search form on GF? this shows that the settings are active"
Here is what I see avter saving settings:
Hello! There is a problem with new feature. It's just don't work. For example, at Search Options property page inside My settings, i desired to sort files by size. Then i carry out any search. And resuls of search are not sorted by size.
I mean that General-Files often send me "Wrong" Alert. For example, I'm looking for CD-image and created the allert for specified name, but letters from General-Files consists of information for another types of files.
I would like "General-files" to remember my search options in my profile settings.
I think, that a lot of your users are primary looking only for files with similar attributes (type, size and etc.).
