Default Search Problems

Anyone else having problems with the Search function at bottom forum pages? I get no response after entry of several common terms.

Default Re: Search Problems

Paul Spence wrote to me about it and after a phone call, the light shone on the problem. I still need to work on it though and it's most likely because of the change over from http: to https:

I'll get there!

There is hope!

Go to: http://www.old-engine.com/index.php#search

About half way down the page, you'll find a Google site search still on a http: page..

This search works for Smokstak, Enginads and Old-Engine.

Apparently the Secure Site changes on Enginads and Smokstak have killed the search screens on those sites.

More work to do!

Closing in on this... It seems that we are all being protected from ourselves and the outside web world.

The reason that search results are not shown is because they are "insecure" meaning that they are http and not https.

Internet explorer will offer you a button to display the insecure results if you click OK.

You would think that Google, the god of the internet, would have figured this out, but not as yet. Enginads.com has the same problem while http://www.old-engine.com/ site search works fine on a non-secure site. All of these site searches covered three sites: Smokstak, Enginads and Old-Engine.

I'm still exploring and working on it.

Default Re: Search Smokstak and Enginads site search!

OK, and the solution is, at least for now...

The SEARCH RESULTS will come from the Old-Engine.com web site. The search contents will include hits from Smokstak and Enginads, but they must be delivered from an http: site.

Therefore, you will see a disclaimer such as this one on Firefox:



As it says, click continue and you will be taken to Old-Engine.com for your search results. Maybe one of these days, Google or the web browser companies will find a better solution. Big deal, you're sending your search keyword over the web!

Don't you just love what we've come to? Protecting ourselves from scumbags that should otherwise be in jail.
