Thanks for alerting me about the Search facility on the blog, Barbara. I was not aware of that problem.

I fear that there is NO quick fix for the piccies problem but I will see if I can rearrange them in that "How to" thread to make it at bit more readable.

Danny, the search facility on the blog has only recently started playing up - I have found the same as Barbara, there is just a blank page when a search is activated. It has worked fine before.

Hmm, same here.  I've never had a problem with searching the blog before but I agree with BS, a blank page comes up.

I'll try that again!

I always find it slow. I end up opening two pages at once so that while one page is coming through I am reading another one Ok

Also posting - seems to take ages to 'register' - or is it me just being impatient???  Big_Laugh  Big_Laugh

AND!  Today when I first logged on, it ground to a complete standstill after telling me that I had 11 new posts to read.  When it got going again, there were only 2 posts to read and even they were not shown in red.  I just posted a reply to Sumo's query of yesterday, which I only came across when I noticed a new member on-line and investigated.

I'll try that again!

The other thing I've found recently is that the words are so tiny (as I'm typing this right now), and yet when it is posted, it is regular size.

Back in the UK, I don't seem to have the same problem - well, we'll see when I get home again !!!!! Surprised

Sorry, everybody. We have speeded up the blog response times and now we can look at doing something similar for the forum. It is really, really difficult to pinpoint the exact causes of the slow response times and why the server fell over three times today when we have had a clean run for a few days. It is terribly frustrating for everybody, I know.

I think we live in a fast(er) world these days, and want everything NOW - that is part of the problem.

Thanks for letting us know Danny.  I noticed a couple of times that it was unavailable - must be very frustrating for you.  Glad to know you are on the case.  Big_Hug
