Actually, it's not. You must have searched Harry Potter and for some reason it came up. But if you click on that picture, it is in the Naughty Cakes section under male anatomy.

That being said, I sure hope they can do something about the search criteria.

Looks like there's a drop down added to the search engine that allows you to select the category you want including those that you saved to your favourites. thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

Not sure what has happened. I was looking for "teen boy cakes", I got 37 pages of everything but. Elmo, Dora, Male anatomy, Female anatomy, princess cakes. I was so embarassed. My son and his friends were looking for a cake for their upcomming bday. I hear, hey mom, uhmm, friend has to go home, his mom won't let him look at this kind of stuff. I was shocked to see what the pics were. icon_eek.gif

I feel your embarrassment....

What it's done is found anything that has the word "teen" "boy" or "cake" in it and spit it out. So you could have a shower cake and it has the keyword boy in it will show up or someone turned eighteen and it will show up and so on. I think there needs to be a filter on naughty cakes so that they only come up if you are only looking in the naughty/adult category.
I know my kids love to look at cakes with me and I'd hate to have something like that pop up in a search.
Maybe it's something that Jackie and Heath have already looked into and hopefully fixed.

This happened tonight! Just a few hours ago. The parents were not at all understanding. I feel just awful.

I think the only way to prevent it from happening is to block ALL naughty cakes from your permissions - you can do that here http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Your_Account&file=group_request .

I agree, it would be nice to be able to occasionally access the naughty threads or cakes for whatever reasons you might desire, but right now it's kind of an "all or none" - either you have access to the naughty forum and cakes and something pops up every now and then *uh, ahem!* or you completely block those cakes. I had to do the latter when I realized that they also show up on the home page under recent uploads if you have naughty cakes enabled. Our family is pretty open with our DD but I just wasn't in the mood to have her ogling that stuff if it happened to appear on the site while I was surfing here. icon_smile.gif

Thanks ceshell, I didn't even realize that this option was available.

I'm just glad I've never seen any of the naughty cakes during my searches with my kiddos.

Nor did I, I am not sure how I got unblocked, I have looked in the files in private, no kids. Not something I think I would do, but they were interesting. I will change the settings and see if that works. I am just so embarassed. I had no idea and did not preview the pics. I have always told the kids to be careful. We even have a nanny protector on to help and it does not. DD did school project on Shirley Temple and googled her under a character name, that was worse. I had always thought it would be hard to get porno in my home. All it takes is to turn on the computer!

Ain't that the truth.

I've seen the same type of errors. I recently have made searches of specific themes and have had other cakes come up. Could it be a flaw in the search function?

One thing I noticed yesterday was that the search function now catches words written in the cakes' DESCRIPTIONS too. This might have been their way to kind of combat the fact that keywords are often not used. Read the descriptions of the "weird" cakes that you have found and you might just find the search terms you used written in there somewhere.

On the other hand you may have noticed that you can now filter your search to only include a certain gallery, so that can still help weed out cakes that don't fit your theme.

Yes, the downside is when people are talking about naughty cakes in the Harry Potter section, I can't see what they mean now ROTFL. icon_cool.gif

Seriously, if you don't want to stumble across this stuff accidentally, it takes about 2 seconds to disable the naughty feature. thumbs_up.gif

OK, maybe I'm missing something. When I click on Search, it doesn't give me the option to only search in certain galleries. Am I doing something wrong?

Hi abra,

Were you in the galleries page before you did the search? You don't want to use the search on the top right corner when your in the forums section or the search tab anywhere else other than the one in the galleries section.
Once your on the galleries page then you will see a heading that says "Cake Decorating Photo Galleries" Under there are 4 separate tabs:

* Album list
* Upload picture
* Search
* View Uncommented

Click on the search tab and you will see the new feature.

HTH! icon_smile.gif
