Patrick - search function is not working?
« on: April 25, 2018, 01:00:22 PM »
Patrick,
Every time I try to do a search on the forum, I get an error message stating something like "language en not found." Is the search function not working?

Hi, jldelozier. The forum is not designed by Pat and is separate from the main site, which he did design. I forwarded your post to him.  :)

MaryL,

Thank you - I didn't know that!

Sorry. It doesn't work for me either. I would need to update the forum software to fix it. The problem is, the software is about 10 years old and I have no idea what has changed with it since then, or what might get lost in the process. I'd hate to lose all the posts.

Patrick,

OOO - that would be bad. I'd surely get hate mail after that. Never mind.  ;D

Patrick, another forum I'm a moderator on uses Simple Machines and has been updating right along. These days the simplest search engine is glitchy, but the Advanced Search works fine. We're at SMF 2.0.15, if that's helpful.

Thanks Terri.  I should probably bite the bullet and just update.
