Is the Advanced Search function no longer working? Sometimes I try to find posts by the name of the poster and this method no longer works. Anyone else find this as a problem?

It works for me. Do you have your cookies disabled? Some of the features on this site don't seem to work properly when you have cookies turned off, so that might be what's happening.

The other thing you can do to find posts by a certain member, is to click on the members name in the member list, then it will give you the option of displaying all posts by that member.

That Amish thing won't work on me, I know a few who can handle a computer better than I can. :P

As far as disabling or enabling your cookie function, most of the computers i have worked with are different so my instuctions might be wrong for you. But it's usually in your computers system setup, then you have to look for something dealing with your security settings and from there you might be able to find out whats up with your cookies.

My foolproof suggestion, however, is to call the 1-800 service number for your compter manufacturer. They can walk you through it while your on the phone with them, and they can gear their instructions to your exact computer model.

Hope this helps a little.

Thanks, but I am still Amish. I wouldn't know how to do the salad bowl thing you have going. It amazes me. I don't have enough spare time to figure these things out or when I learn them by the time I need to use it again, I have forgotten or lost my notes on it.

Don't feel bad, I'm not sure how I did the salad bowl thing either... dumb luck I guess. Re: the Amish comment, I wasn't making fun, I really do know a few who could run computer circles around me :P . But I still recommend calling yor computer manufacturer to figure out the cookie thing. Most computer companies put a sticker on the back side of your hard drive that will have the number listed on it. Or you could do a google search to find the companies technical support number.

Good luck! :D

With much weeping and gnashing of teeth I think I did the cookie thing correctly.

Thanks for your help. Do you live around the Amish? I didn't realize that they got involved in computers....good for them! I guess I can't use the Amish line anymore.....

I don't live around any Amish communities, but when I am not teaching, I am a full time student myself. And there is a small group Amish students who use the computer lab on occasion, but your right, I don't think it's a common thing for the Amish community to be high tech, but I don't really know. I had always thought there were religious rules involved, but these students don't seem to affected by them regarding computers. The only other Amish folks I know are builders and craftsmen, and they sell the most amazing furniture, masterfully crafted and absolutly beautiful.

Anyway, if you figured out the cooike thing, did it help with your search function? Is it working any better now?

I fixed the cookie thing, but I am still overwhelmed by technology.
