Default Search not working

The search feature isn't working for me.

I have been having computers issues lately, but the search function was working yesterday for me. Just wanted to touch base and see if its a "just me thing"

The basic search works fine for me. Is it the Advanced Search that's giving you problems?

I just tried a search for something where I had a general idea of what would come back and it worked quickly and gave me what I expected. Was this Advanced Search? Did it just time out or give you unexpected (or no) results?

For what it's worth, I saw a couple of minor hiccups on the site this morning. Can you try your search again and see if it works now?

I just tried again - still nothing. I get NO results. Just a blank page. Looks like its just me then. Something must be screwed up on my computer. I'll have my daughter look it.

A couple things you might try while you're waiting for your daughter to look at your computer.

1. If you have an ad-blocker...turn it off for this site and try your search again. Hitting Go on the Search feature polls ad cookies as it loads.

2. Try another browser. If another browser works...it's a setting in your regular browser that may have been changed during an automatic update.

Good ideas, Bounty!

vdrogers, you also can try logging out and logging back in. Might need to clear the cookies for this site; if you don't know how to do that your daughter probably does.

One of the handiest computer tools I've found (I've used this for years) is a (free) program called CCleaner. Under Options/Cookies it will show you all the cookies currently on your computer...and the ability to move the ones that you want to keep into a Cookies-to-Keep column. When you run CCleaner it will remove all the cookies on your computer...less the ones you want to keep.

I run this program every night before I shut down. Clearing cookies is just one of about 25 other things it does that I've ticked.

Good to hear. I used to do that, too. Get to pokin' around in stuff I had no business pokin' around in. I blamed it on alcohol and too much time on my hands.
