I'm looking for telecommute jobs but when doing a search using the Only Telecommute Jobs checkbox, jobs offering relocation are showing up instead.

Could be from listings trying to make you think they're amenable to remote work, but only if remote means when you've clocked out for the day while onsite for the rest –  random Aug 30 '12 at 0:14
Can you point me at a specific job that's showing up in the results that shouldn't be? Everything I'm seeing right now is either solely telecommute or it's telecommute and they're offering relocation as well. I'm not seeing anything that's not telecommute. –  Jason Punyon Aug 30 '12 at 0:44
@JasonPunyon How can you tell if it's telecommute? For instance, this doesn't say anything about tele. If I do a keyword search and click "telecommute" I get 1059 jobs. If I click "view all" I get 1059 jobs. If I put in a distance and no keywords I get 1059 jobs. Contrast with a day or two ago when it seemed to work for me. The terms are in the URL, but I don't think they're sticking. –  Dave Newton Aug 30 '12 at 1:41
@DaveNewton: Hmm. I see it now. –  Jason Punyon Aug 30 '12 at 1:57
@JasonPunyon, Not sure if this is related, but I noticed something funky with the GET request. Under Chrome developer tools, it only sends ajax=1 even though the querystring in the URL appears to change. If I copy and paste the URL and do a "manual" GET through the browser (chrome, win7), it works. –  hyperslug Aug 30 '12 at 2:02
@hyperslug: Yep related. –  Jason Punyon Aug 30 '12 at 2:16

Thanks for the report. Someone got a little overzealous refactoring some javascript. Everything should be back to normal now.
