I've tried that. Many times. It did work when they fixed it after the first change to Game Finder. It no longer works since the second change to Game Finder. You can select a tournament and save it, but when you try to Run a saved search you just get a raw dump of all the games on CC right back to Game 1.

My theory is that Saved Search is correctly returning the name of the tournament to the type-in space where the tournament used to go, but since that space no longer exists the name is going nowhere.

So to load a saved search with a tournament, this script will have to emulate what the [find a tournament] link does and force the drop-down to appear with the right value in it. I have GOT to learn more about the scripting language. I know what needs to be done to fix something like this, but don't know how to do it.

So the answer is hire a handyman. We need a scripting guru.

I'll bet you don't tell your wife that (unless she is the handywoman).

Not had a look at this yet, but you can save me or a scripting guru some time by revealing your solution.

Sorry, I guess I am overselling it to say I know what to do. All I have is what I said above. I guess that means finding out how, once you have selected a tournament from the popup finder, the name of the tournament gets put into and selected in a drop-down menu on the game finder which initially is not even visible. I have no idea how complex that would be.

Currently impossible to solve with scripts, the site code has to be changed to give scripts a chance to access the tournament name in the same window.
Whilst it may be possible to get the tournament right the first time, the window is not closed down after every search meaning it would be unwieldy to try and extract the information but I'm not going to even attempt it as the site has a better solution.

Yeah this morning's update is perfect. lack has basically put an active tournaments window in for TO's which is 90% of what I used saved searches for anyway. For the non-tournament games the utility works as before, so we're fine!

Apologies but this tool will be discontinued unless the Tech Team wishes to appoint a new keeper, I will not be doing any more work on tools.
