Why can't I search?
« on: January 27, 2013, 05:00:50 PM »
Normally I would search the forum for a problem like this but whenever I search for anything I receive an error message stating I do not have permission to search. Please could someone help?

I believe that the search function is not operational at this time, but on the bright side, this site does seem to allow its contents to be indexed by search engines. Hence you can go to google and type in your search term, then append site:http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org and you will be able to get results matching your search from this site.

For example, if you were interested in the LSAT, and the google prompt enter:

     LSAT site:http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org

FYI to Admin, issue STILL not resolved.
I tried it moments ago, still a no go.

This............really isn't an answer. I'll rephrase for clarity on what I think OP meant to ask (and what I am sure others are wondering as well) will it EVER ACTUALLY BE FIXED and if not, why?

Unlikely, as the guy who created this forum graduated from law school almost a decade ago and he's the only one who can edit the source code.

Oh, that sucks. But it is what it is. Meh.
Why can't the guy who created it pass on the full rights/ability to use the site to the current Mods? Does he still own it? Did he die with his middle fingers to the sky and his last words being "f@ck that site........I'm dead now" ??

As far as I know, he got a firm job and lived happily ever after.

Being a forum mod and site admin are two very different things. The latter would require access to the server and has the potential to screw up some stuff real good. I'm not a programmer and I wouldn't know how to fix it or what's wrong with it beyond the fact that it doesn't work.

I'm sorry; wish I could be more helpful. There's still a lot of good information stored here and some helpful posters. Hopefully you'll take from it what you can.
