Re: Can't search any of the mailing list archives

Thanks, much improved. I'd even take it one step further and say that the only way to do a search is through the alternate mechanism, since the searches from the Mailing list page don't work.

Regards,
Margaret

Thanks for info. Probably other newbies will get burnt by this.
      
Absolutely.

    
Seems to me that web page needs to be fixed.
      
Inexplicably, that never gets done. If you want to see the previous
discussion on this issue, see this:

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-10/0701.shtml

And the continuation:

http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2004-12/1126.shtml
    

I'm not tigris.org's maintainer, but I work for them.  An internal
issue is already filed about the searches being broken.

In the meantime, the list descriptions for the users@ and dev@ list
had text saying to use the haxx.se archives for searching.  I've
changed that text to be in all-caps, with stars around it, so it's
more likely to be noticed.

The reason I can't just eliminate the search box, or make more
extensive changes to the page, is that they are servlet-generated and
I do not have access to the servlets; in fact, I don't even have login
access to the server.  There's a long, detailed procedure for making
one-off customizations to the site, and we've been reluctant to do
that because then we'd have to maintain the customization through
upgrades, remember to undo it when the issue is resolved etc.  (Yes, I
know all these are solveable problems -- I'm not claiming the process
would be impossible, just very difficult, so have opted to make more
prominent notices in the list descriptions instead).

Best,
-Karl
