Search doesn't work [Vanity]
expat | Nov 9,2012 | Me

Posted on 11/09/2012 10:40:59 PM PST by expat1000

Search doesn't work. I reported it to the Administrator several days ago and as usual didn't even get the courtesy of a reply.

I get an error in several different browsers similar to: You are not authorized to access the webpage at http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/search?m=all;o=time;q=quick;s=Muslim%20man%20chops%20off%20his%20daughter%27s%20head%20and%20shows%20it%20off%20around%20the%20city. You may need to sign in

Is it just me?

Line break above “Is it just me?” did not show up. Just to be clear, that is not part of the error!

I actually got a physical shock from my mouse when I tried to use FR search. Never do that again!

You can still search keywords, just not titles.

Title search doesn’t work here either. I use Google advanced search when I need to find a specific title in FR.

Search hasn’t worked for me too. I’m posting articles, hoping that someone hadn’t already posted the same article earlier.

“I reported it to the Administrator several days ago and as usual didn’t even get the courtesy of a reply.”

Well, what do you expect? We’re mere peasants beneath their station. They can’t be seen conversing with us unworthy ones. It would lower their standing in the community.

Seems like trolling is your department. Just come out of the woodwork for the one troll, did you?

Given past experience, not much.

It’s broken. John says there’s some kind of conflict with it and the new software package he installed last week that solved the other problem. He’s hoping he gets a chsnce to work on it this weekend.

By rhe way, the admins have nothing to do with the programming.

Thanks for the reply. So Admins are really moderators, is that right?

Yeah, I have a similar problem. No matter how hard I hit my keyboard the bloody thing will not speed up!

Once last question, pls. A while back I asked for clarification about excerpting vs full posting from several sites. If I have questions like that, who do I ask?

When in doubt, excerpt. We plan on going to excerpt for everything anyway, but John hasn’t had the time to do the programming.
