Did the forum search page disappear? Can't Post

I suddenly can't do a search of the forums anymore, other than a word or phrase search through the entire Speakeasy. Can anyone tell me what I'm missing?

Re: [svejk] Did the forum search page disappear? [In reply to] Can't Post

not sure if this is what you are looking for, but i just use the magnifying glass icon (search posts) in the upper right between "messages" and "who's online". from there you can set the search criteria you would like (for instances search for a particular magazine's name only in the "savoring the sweet smell of success" forum).

does that make sense?

Hi, Jennie.

I remember the magnifying glass, and the whole set-up sounds like what I remember, but it's not what I have on my screen anymore. I'm sure I'm completely blissing out with something, but I don't know how. I've attached a screen shot of what I see on the Speakeasy site while looking at messages.

Oh wait, I see it now. It's, uhm, attached...just like you said.

You need to go to the main page (main board list?) to view the search option with the magnifying glass. It's up there by Who's Online?

Thanks for the help, Junior.

Unfortunately, I'm still stumped. I've attached another image, this one of what I think is the main board. At least it's what I get when I click on any "Speakeasy Message Forum" link. And still no magnifying glass.

I shouldn't be bothering normal people with this. I wish there were a P&W techie on call.

Wow. I am now intrigued!

It looks like your banner ad's covering everything. For me, the number of users appears just below it.

If you're using Firefox, you could install the Add-on Add Block Plus:

http://adblockplus.org/en/

...which'll get rid of that ad (and most other ads, and save you from browser attacks) and possibly uncover the search function?

Like all add-ons, it's free and generally awesome.

oh oh oh. i think i know. i really do.

i think you need to dump your cookies / cache and restart your browser.

as to the bothering normal people, i can't imagine who you are talking about: i am no normal person.

another possibility is updating your browser. i know that the banner ad in question was covering a portion of my personal messages until i updated firefox.

Yup. It's the banner ad. In Safari, it covers the tool menu. It functions correctiy in Firefox. Thanks for your abnormal interest in this topic, Jennie.

Well, maybe not on call, but just an e-mail away. This one seems to be Apple's goof, because it works correctly in Google Chrome, which is built on the same code base as Safari. I'll see if I can tune the stylesheet to get around it.

This should be fixed now. It works on IE8, FF, Safari, and Chrome on Windows XP and 7, which is all I have handy. I'll have to wait until tomorrow to check it on a Mac, but Safari/Win and Mac maintain concurrent releases, so I'm guessing it's good to go there, too.

I had this problem on my Mac. But it is now fixed (through no effort of my own) and I can search to my heart's content. Thanks!
