All I get is the URL and a blank page!

See this

There are other threads about the issue. It looks like another feature of the site is gone.

I use Google. Enter terms and add in the search bar.

TMP search never worked for me anyway.

Not gone, "new & improved"

Temporarily turned off because it was causing problems with the database.

That's definitely where all the talk would/should be. There and in the bugs and features board.

So, how long is "temporarily" likely to be?

Cacique Caribe Inactive Member07 Feb 2018 10:56 p.m. PST

Shorter than "indefinitely". :)

Thanks Guys.

I guess that means people can no longer be terse with newbies and tell them to use it! :o)

Must try Mark's work around out of curiosity.

Lots on that here:

Really!? The old farts are terse with newbies on TMP? Time for a truth and reconciliation board!

I was gone for a year and it looks like a lot of the same folks before I left. I did miss the passing of some regulars I really liked, which saddened me. But it looks like the same faces as always.

Well maybe not always terse but even I have to confess to getting cheesed when replying to the same question for the twentieth time so the Search was handy for dragging up what "Pearl of Wisdom" I had offered before.

In fact that's what I was doing when I discovered I couldn't!

Pity as it s one of the most useful feature of this site, that beats others and fessebook.

The author search was useful, as it made it straightforward to check on additions to recent discussions that had slid off the front page. It would be nice to at least get that much back.

Ditto to jeffreyw3's comment. Bill needs to quit starting useless and silly polls, and get this FIXED!
