when I perform a search all goes well - I can find relevant searches and pick one to read but if I try to go back to the search list I get a session timed-out window and have to go back to the Forum and search again from new. What am I doing wrong?

I honestly don't know, but I'll look into it. Perhaps there's a session time-out value that can be adjusted. I'll let you know.

Thanks.

Bob,

I'm having the same time-out issue when searching. Glad I wasn't the only one. I see this same type of error when trying to use the Back button on secure bank websites or when paying for something online with a credit card and trying to hit the Back button. It just seems like the security is ramped up too high on the search results page... hope that helps.

Awesome forum, by the way. Thanks...

Bob,

When you get a list of search results and click on a thread, can you open a new browser window for that one thread so the search results always stay in their original window? So, when you are finished reading a thread, you just close the window and the search results are still there and do not have to do a rebuild for the search. Does that make sense? That's how the phpBB search result windows function.

The back button should work properly to go from a topic back to the search results. I just tried it and it works just fine for me. It has nothing to do with security.

You may be using search criteria that is too vague and is producing too many results. The archives are vast. Try narrowing your search.

The search function of this forum operates like any phpBB based forum. To have it open in a new window or tab. right-click on the link and you will get such an option.

The right-click works well. I'll use that.

I have a feeling that others are experiencing the same expired/time-out issue. If you Search on cepek rims studs and click on Search For All Terms, you will get 8 matches. If I click on any match and then try to hit the Back button, I get the time-out error. A button to get me back to the search results would also work. I'd attach a photo of the error message but the insert image tools are not on this form. I'll try to email it to you. Thanks.

I tried exactly that and it works fine for me. There is no technical problem on this end, at least none that I can reproduce. I will run this by the IT guy.

OK, thanks for checking it out. I like the right-click approach with a new window. -Kevin

I get the Page Has Expired message too. IE 6 and XP here.

A shorter way of right clicking is to press the Shift button and Left Click at the same time

I have been able to recreate this problem, but only when using Internet Explorer. It does not happen when using Firefox. So it must be browser-related. I haven't yet been in touch with the IT guy, so I'll see what he says when I do run this by him.

In the meantime, anyone experiencing this might consider trying Firefox:

http://www.mozilla.com

It's a LOT safer than IE anyway. It's not so different from IE in appearance and functionality that there's much of a learning curve involved. It's free.

Yep, Firefox is a good browser.

Here's the official Microsoft acknowledgement of the problem and a good description of it: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319792

But, they say it was fixed in IE 6 service pack 1. I'm running service pack 2 so maybe it got unfixed. I'll run my Windows Update and see if it fixes the issue. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319792

I was using the latest version of IE with XP SP2. It looks like MS hasn't fixed it. I doubt there's anything we can do on our end, but I will still look into it.

Thanks.

I upgraded to IE7 and had the same problem. This is why it's so easy to dislike Bill Gates. IE7 recommends the following as a fix, but it didn't help: "If you continue to have this problem, try the following:

In Internet Explorer, click Tools, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.
Scroll down and uncheck the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" option in the Security settings. "

The Shift-Click solution is great. I just open a bunch of windows from the search results and then close each window when I'm done reading. Thanks for the work-around. -Kevin

If you have IE 7 you can also middle click the mouse scroll wheel to open a new tab.
