Error message 504 comes up when searching
« on: August 05, 2018, 03:24 PM »
Good morning,

I'm having trouble searching for authors, titles etc and the above message appears then converts quickly to the page with the message "Did you forget to put something to search for?". I did try to get a screenshot to attach sdo that you could see the message but it reverts so quickly to the the search page.

I'm using Firefox. I hope this helps you sort it out.

Nancy

PS I was wondering if using a VPN could cause the problem so I tried it with it on and without it and it was just the same .

I'm having the same problem, but only some of the time. Specific authors seem to be particularly unlucky for me, while others go through on the first try.

I've found that I have better luck getting search results back when I enclose the search terms in quotes, and when I open a completely fresh tab, but nothing works consistently.

Just tried your suggestion of inserting " around the search terms and that worked....Not ideal but better than nothing....

I'm having the same problem - been having it for all of August but thankfully the suggestion off placing the search term in quotes seems to work so thanks for that  :)

Hi
Same here.
Using the quotes seems to work, but not always.
My solution: I leave it alone, to have a rest and then come back in a while... Until now, it works. It's not very orthodox method but it works for me.

Ugh! So frustrating, all I want is the new Sawyer  Bennett book.
