    Seperating words algorithm doesn't consider non-space seperated languages

    kazekara · 3 · Last reply by Monkey 777

    Words are currently separated by English punctuation like spaces, commas, etc., I suppose. This, however, makes it almost impossible to search for pages in other languages, like Chinese or Japanese where words are organized together without spaces.

    Let's take this page https://movie.douban.com/subject/26897009/ for example. In the .subject div, there are some information about a TV show. If one were to search "制片国家" (country of production), the page would pop up in worldbrain's search. However, if "制片" (production) or "国家" (country) were searched, the page will not show up in the search results, since I believe worldbrain considers "制片国家" to be

    Memex stopped working in Chrome

    scotthicks · 6 · Last reply by Kerwin

    I've been using Memex for several months and suddenly it stopped working. Whenever I search or try to index, I just get the "three bouncing balls / I'm thinking" animation.

    I use a lot of extensions but I have turned them all off, to no avail. I have turned Memex off and back on, restarted Chrome, etc. 

    FWIW, I'm using Chrome Version 66.0.3359.117 (Official Build) (64-bit) on a Windows 10 desktop.

    Page does not render correctly.

    Sun Kim · 3 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Memex is preventing the page from rendering correctly. I tried adding it to the blacklist, but blacklist seems to only prevent annotation prompt from appearing, but doesn't stop interacting with the page.

    How do I submit the HTML to you that is causing this privately?

    Highlighted text is hard to read

    mike_hales · 2 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Using the link-to-clipping function . . . that's fabulous thank you. But the highlighting is dark green, and almost obscures the text. A more transparent highlight colour, please? Even, a choice of colours?

    Import foundt only 1500 of my approx 6000 history entries (on Chrome)

    Benedikt · 4 · Last reply by Sun Kim

    Of those, approx 400 failed. But that does not seem to be the reason why I hardly can find any content.

    Any other mechanism I could try to get the content of the visited webpages into the knowledge base?

    Backup hangs at 0% in preparing uploads phase

    Tebibyte · 2 · Last reply by Tebibyte

    I have been trying to backup to google drive, but the processes hangs in Step 4/5 at 0% in preparing uploads phase. Little cpu or network activity is being used by the extention. 

    That said, I have 2gb of files and screenshots to backup so some slowness in understandable.

    I really like the extention though, good work!

    Memex consumes excessive amount of cpu

    adjm · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Memex 0.2.1, Chrome 66.0.3359.117, macOS 10.13.4

    Memex uses 100%-125% of CPU while browsing according to Chrome's Task Manager, and continues to use such high cpu even if all tabs are closed for a long time. Attached is console log of the extension. What else can I provide to help debug this issue?

    Highlights dissapear when panel is hidden

    woguret · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Highlighted text reverts to normal (hightlights removed) when panel is closed. I'm not sure if this by design or not, but it would make sense to laways show highlights if present on the visited page.

    Can't search title?

    Henry Wong · 0 · Posted

    I understand that the search term must be an exact match but when I search for "02270840" from the title it didn't find the match. No results also if I search for "How". Don't know if this is the expected behavior.

    Unable to reproduce: Does not save "Do you want to share anonymous usage statistics, so we can improve the Memex for you and others?"

    David Pollard · 1 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Unable to reproduce: Probably just user error (aka me being dumb).

    This is no longer a problem, but i don't see an option to close ticket. Feel free to close. Do you want to share anonymous usage statistics, so we can improve the Memex for you and others? option does not save choice, always defaults back to Yes.

    Some pages still do not seem to be indexed

    Benedikt · 5 · Last reply by Oliver Sauter

    Right now, I looked for some words of this page:

    Wikipedia, "Brutus of Troy".

    Visited the page yesterday.

    After not finding the content with memex, I visited again today. Refreshed it several times. Even moved it to another open session.

    No sucess. Content not foundt by memex.

    Not good. I intended to rely on this service.
