    I have tried to do a couple of searches to help out folks with questions and I do not seem to bring up any of the old threads where I recall the topic being discussed. Is it just me, or are you only getting results from after the switch (or nothing at all)?

    WHAT SEARCH FUNCTION :( :(

    I'm aggravated, but they'll get it fixed I hope. Try using <term> :arboristsite in google.

    i.e 660 :arboristsite

    Are you sure someone (SWMBO?) didn't put a filter on it? :)

    It's a lot of work and head scratching to do what they are trying to do, patience. And check the support thread for updates.

    you can do a site search in google, follow your keywords with site:arboristsite.com, no spaces.

    in the Site Announcements subforum yesterday, they mentioned the search function wasn't working and that they were trying to resolve the issue.

    Again, I ask why can't they put it as an announcement at the top of each forum? Many of us never read any other forums.

    Someone or some thing has put a AS block on my desk top PC.

    I still can't get on AS no way no how!

    If I do a google search for AS and click on link to come up in a new window
    it will close both pages. I have restarted, cleaned history.
    Any thing I try to get on AS it will close web page in the blink of an eye.
    Am on the wifes lap top, and no it wasn't her that blocked me :)

    I'm at a loss at what to try next...............help

    might have to disable NetNanny. ;)

    I agree, try a different browser. Firefox is my go to, Chrome is a quick download.

    I have no problems at all on Wife's Lap Top.


    It's just the desk top PC and only problem with it is AS.



    I need to stay off AS more anyway.

    Have you cleared your cache and history could be that causing the issue

    I don't believe you have to put in the words "site" and the .com as I suggested

    keyword site:arboristsite.com will take you to arboristsite server results only. I use this search feature all the time for craigslist searching. ie: Jonsered 670 site:*.craigslist.org , in this case the asterix is required because craigslist has a location prefix, the asterix acts as a wildcard so that all locations are shown. see google advanced search options. cheers
