Hi, We have a problem in using look up fields on Collective Access advanced search form. I tested on Collective Access demo site and it is not working there as well. Changing the field type to, for example selection box, works fine (even on demo site) but changing it to lookup field does not work. Any information how to make it work? Thanks.

@ca-ubos No it is not. We are working on a completely revised browse engine at this very moment. If you want that feature file a JIRA for it and we'll try to get it into the new implementation.
@naeemmuhammad You will have to give me a specific use case to try.

Hello! I managed to figure out how to install CA on my server, but I'm stuck now that it's installed: during installation errors occured and I never saw the screen (I'm presuming there is a screen based on what I've read in documentation) that show my username and password.

What are the errors?

It froze during the installation - the short version is that the editor I used to modify setup.php replaced some ' and " with a similar (I'm guessing non-unicode) characters. I resolved those and the installation seems to have worked
Beyond that I'm not sure which specific errors there were

If it freezes then the installation didn't work
Look in your server logs for an error message

Ok, here are the errors https://pastebin.com/iZyGrq9e
I believe I've resolved the errors in the setup.php file, is there a way to safely re-run installation?

Yes, delete and recreate the database and then try again

alternatively set CA_ALLOW_INSTALLER_TO_OVERWRITE_EXISTING_INSTALLS to true in setup.php
