Exclamation Re: Search engine

Jim are you talking about the search function located at the top of the site pages?
If you have the screen resolution set way too large for the monitor size you are using the search contracts into the compact version displayed by a big black magnifying glass.
Click it it see the search options.

When you reduce the screen resolution to the windows recommended size for your monitor and or make the browser full screen you will see the google custom search bar.

PLEASE NOTE: Currently - July 2018 - The site designers and tech are working on the actual function of the compacted google search which returns no hits currently so try to use the full browser, correct resolution for your monitor to get the regular search option.

Photos attached of the compact and full view search options.

Have you flushed your cached and temp files, downloaded and run all updates to your OS and to your browser?

Re: Search engine

Also, are y'all okay with those thumbnail sizes or would you like for me to increase the dimensions?

Clear cookies every other day or so, Ccleaner. Cache I think so but not that clear on how to do it. Reboot?

Re: Search engine

I see the search engine but it frequently tells me there's no results. Not. Don't know what's up with that (or me).

Chris - No as I said the tech guys are working to restore functionality to the Google search when its part of the compacted search block - aka the black magnifying glass. Right now it never produces hits on any search.

So for the moment you will have to make the site full screen or reset your browser resolution until you see the custom google search with the gray magnifying glass, as that Google search always works.

IE does have a tougher time with secure sites because it doesn't seem to understand that the images ARE secure as well.

If you want to continue to use IE check for these settings.

Tools>Internet Options>Security tab>Custom Level button>Display Mixed Content>Enable (see if it is set to "Prompt" and uncheck that if it is)
