    Problem with the "Unanswered posts" search


    Most times, when I try the search on unanswered posts, aka
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/sea..._id=unanswered

    When clicking on the link for the 2nd page, or the "next" link, this error comes up

    No topics or posts met your search criteria.

    Please Ask your question in the forums.
    I think its due to the fact the link redirects you to, for example
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/sea...04042&start=18

    When, this one is the one that actually works
    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/sea...wered&start=18

    I think the webmaster would like to check out that. Im currently the member in several phpBB forums and I never experienced this problem before.

    Cheers

    What does your link to any other page that the 1st one looks like?
    My bet is that somehow I get that "weird" id=weirdnumber instead of id=unanswered

    No, all the other pages have an id number in them for me too, but the pages all load just fine... it's just page after page of unanswered posts.

    Maybe clearing your browser cache and/or cookies would clear it up for you.

    I'd suggest the cookie/cache thing as well. Works fine for me.

    Yep, then its just me, probably is indeed my cache/cokies, as firefox has been failing lately. Ill keep manually entering the "unanswered" in the id var till I reinstall.
    Thanks guys

    the error message you got will occur because each search you perform is given a temporary unique id (the "search id") which is effectivly time limited before being deleted from the database. Basically, if you do a search, leave your computer, come back a long time later and click page 2, you will get the error. Nothing to worry about, just reload the original search results page.

    Ok, I didnt know about the temporary ID generation. However I didnt leave my computer. I just clicked the id=unanswered, took like what, 10 secs to read the titles, and then clicked the 2nd page.

    However, as stated before, the problem seems to be my browsers fault.
