    I've been trying to use Search all day and it worked maybe once out of a dozen tries. it eventually says "server error".

    Larry, it works for me. Maybe try signing out, clear your GT cookies and sign back in.

    I seem to always have issues with the search function. If I want to know something I always search first but most times it returns no hits and the first thing someone would say if you ask is if you did a search. I usually resort to just searching on Google for info.

    Hasn't worked once for me in the last couple of days. I search and get the 3 blinking lines for about 8 seconds and then the lines go away and nothing happens. I tried logging out, clearing Glocktalk cookies in Chrome (Windows 10), restarting the browser and when none of that worked, I got the same results using the Edge browser.

    This site has been clunky for years,, no matter which computer or browser I use. About a third of the time when I click on a thread, instead of navigating to the thread, I am taken to the Glocktalk homepage. I have to go back and click the thread again to try to reach it instead of being taken to the homepage. Sometimes it takes two, three or even more tries to get to the thread I want. Frustrating!

    Try using Google and add "Glock Talk" to your search terms.
    This will often circumvent a weak site search feature.

    Just me, or is The Okie Corral messed up? Can't post, and it's been over an hour since RuusP submitted the last post there...should be some traffic there I'd think.

    Or have I been banned and don't know it yet??

    No, same problem. And I'm getting pretty agitated about not being able to post my favorite animal gifs.

    Here's what's interesting, the last post in Okie, presumably the one that broke the board, was RussP.

    Maybe RussP locked the door when he left?

    I have been having trouble liking posts in a couple of forums this morning.

    This is weird, certain posts in some threads will not accept a like during a certain time period. Newer posts will accept a like.

    You can do a site-specific search using Google. Copy/paste this into the search window in Google to see it work:

    site:glocktalk.com sig p228

    ...or this also works:

    sig p228 site:glocktalk.com

    It's all about knowing how to talk to the machine.
