Default Search function not working on web site

For about the past week, when I put anything in the search box at the top of the page (and I am logged in) it sends me to the search results page but everything is blank except for the search box. I've put in very generic search words also, like Uniden, BCD996p2, etc. I am using Chrome web browser.

I just gave it a try on Firefox with Uniden as the search term and it worked.

Try deleting your cache, history, etc, etc.

There have been a lot of changes made to the site lately and I was having problems until I cleared my browser cache.

I noticed this a couple days ago too, I'm using windows 10 on two machines, cleared all the cache from both edge and chrome browsers, logged in and not logged in...

no results show at all.

I'm seeing the same thing here.... Win10 with Edge or Chrome.

However, when I use IE 11, no search results show on the page, but a pop-up warning says "only secure content is being displayed".

When I click on the button in that pop-up warning that says "show all content", then the search results are displayed as you would expect.

Cleared the cache and browser and still no luck.

Angry MIxed-mode Content

There's so-called mixed-mode content being served here - a mixture of secure (https) and insecure (http) resources. The browser is trying to protect the user from seeing the insecure items, so it's not rendering them. This is expected behavior for a properly-written browser.

For example, on another page in the forums, I noticed that there was an eBay ad that's supposed to have appeared on the page, but didn't because it seems impossible to get the ad served securely (via https as opposed to via http) off of the eBay server.

Since HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) has been implemented for the forums.radioreference.com subdomain, albeit only for one hour, all accesses to that subdomain will be issued by compliant browsers securely (https), regardless of whether the link is coded securely (https) or insecurely (http).

Of course, the site is powered by tin cans and string anyway, so some problems are to be expected.

(Insider reference for those who enjoy reading Web server response headers.)

Frank.

I've cleared everything and even reinstalled browsers, nothing. Even on my iphone I still can't search.

With different browsers on different computers, I also get a blank page (meaning no results) when I try to use the search-box in the upper-right corner. I have been for more than a week. I use that feature so rarely that I thought the problem was on my end. It seems it is on the RR end.

This seems to be a system problem and not just a forum problem.

Exactly... but the take-away from the average user is that the search function is not working.

LOL... yes, I have seen that in the response headers along with the line referring to "tipping the server".

Even funnier.... just after you posted the observation about tin cans, this post showed up:

Wink Some humor

Thanks for that!

When reading about the "tin can with a little echo" problem, my first impulse was to suggest throwing out the tin can and moving up to a 55-gallon drum.

Regards,

Frank.

I've rolled fixes for the search functions and other mixed content issued.

Thanks,

Yes, because it's as easy as clicking "update".

As RR Staff have said in the past, there are a lot of variables with this site. It's not like you just hit "update" and things work.
