GMS 2.3+ GMS Manual's search engine lists results that you can not click on

I got a problem with using the online GameMaker Studio 2 search engine, when I enter in "event_count". It lists the all the links it finds about ( or closely relevant to ) the subject, but some of the links in the listing do not let me click on them, especially first link that says "event_count". I can see my mouse on the monitor turn into a highlighting cursor, not a pointer when I hover it above these links. I had to use the "folder with the a-z" option to look up event_count just to read the documentation. The search engine does it with other searches that lists results I can not click on. It mixes the results of links that you CAN click on with links that you CAN'T click on, in the listing it produces.

I know that this online manual is new and has not been hammered out flat of its faults on a anvil, but this one problem makes finding the information that I want to read, frustrating.

Has anyone else noticed this problem ?

Late Correction : I was searching for "event_number"

I the past I have had a similar issue where I would have to wait a minute before the links from the search became clickable. I presume because the JavaScript search function was still running and populating the search results with links.

  1. I don't believe there is a reference for 'event_count.' Perhaps you meant 'event_number.'
  2. I do not have the issue you describe. I'm using Chrome on Windows, and Safari on MacOS
  3. If you have a bug with the manual report it:

Same here, I have had that problem too and thought that the server was hog tied with requests from other users.

Another problem is that when I set my Firefox web browser's view setting to view the website in its actual size, it changes
the background of the search engine's listing from a dark gray to a pure white, making the listing hard to read because the text is formatted in a light gray. When I change the setting to zoom out ( by one click ), it changes that pure white background back to the dark gray color that it was seen in. Then I can read the listing.

I'm having the same issue actually... :(
That's exactly what is happening on my end when I try to look up subjects.

What gives?!

Sorry, your right ... event number is what I was looking up...
