Make sure you include the above information in your request and add the name of the narrator that you are looking for.

If the links are dead: add to the thread "Links Dead, user inactive"

A Mod will expire it for you and hopefully someone will repost it from the expired section :)

There are two links in all audiobook posts. If for whatever reason neither of them is working, you must follow the Rules and explain the situation to the poster:

Thank you. This link was only given in a request post, not a release post. I have tried reaching out to the OP, but no response. Shall I leave it longer, or is there another approach? Thank you.

I am sorry but no, you cannot request new links in request posts, please read:

Requests RULES

Important: Links in requests are NOT meant to be replaced when they die. A request is a one-time deal: once filled and rewarded, the topic is moved to the Fulfilled section and locked (no further editing possible). You are not to send private messages to fulfillers asking for new links, you must request again. Thank you.

Most filehosts are difficult to navigate, that's why we have a topic with instructions, I hope you'll find it useful:

.exe or Virus warning after downloading a file (Download instructions)

If after following the steps you still can't get rid of the traffic cone, send me a private message with the link that you have trouble with and I'll see what I can do, no problem.


Edit: fixed.

The orange traffic cone is VLC Media Player's icon. I use it myself for certain things. If you're downloading books (either audio or ebook) and you don't want them opening with VLC, you need to set your default programs to open with your app of choice. This is done in the settings of your operating system. I use Windows, which allows me to set those defaults by extension if I want. I'm sure Macs have the same option.

You could also go into VLC and remove the file associations for that app. I assume the next time you open one of those removed extensions, your OS will ask you which app you want to use.

I am still unclear on how to search in the advanced search box when it comes to authors with initials. I have tried for instance

r. cooper
r cooper
+r+cooper
"r. cooper"
"r cooper"
"+r+cooper"

I still get any authors or posts that have "cooper" in the title.

What am I doing wrong?

TIA!

Before I explain how to use the advanced search, please read this:

Subject: search doesn't work with short words

Disk4mat wrote:Getting good search on a site is incredibly complex. Even far larger sites than ours usually choose to use the search engines of companies that specialize in developing search engines (check cnn.com for example, the 27th biggest site in the US, and even they don't have their own search engine). Behemoths like Google have invested hundreds of millions of dollars into their algorithms and people nowadays are somewhat spoiled with the result. Small sites like ours cannot afford to do the same. The minimum characters indexed by our search is 3, anything less than that will not add anything to your results.

Alternatively, you can search like this by using google to only display results from mobilism.org:
site:mobilism.org EnterYourSearchTermsHere


Once we accept our limitations, we understand that we will need to enter a bit more information in the Advanced search than just a few letters in a name. A title or a series should be enough, like this: https://images.mobilism.org/?di=LJ4O7OVH

• Keywords: Cooper Familiar Spirits
• Search if forums: Romance
• Search subforums: Post subjects and message text

Results (all 3): search.php?keywords=Cooper+Familiar+Spirits&terms=all&author=&fid%5B%5D=1292&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=topics&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search

Ahh, ok. That makes sense. I didn't know that much about search engines except that some are Boolean(?) which still means very little me. I will keep working on it and I really appreciate you letting me know!
