sorry to moan (again) there seems to be a problem with the search funtion, I was looking up a book that I had downloaded the other day and deleted in error before I could transer it to calibre.
I searched both author and book name, nothing, I then tried looking up another book nothing, I tried a prolific author JD Robb (Nora Roberts) in both guises using as many variations as possible nothing.

I went into the ebooks and picked one at random and searched nothing, either by author or title, nothing, I even went into the top books in the last 7 days and using the search button still nothing

Any ideas?

The site updates itself once an hour, if you have a problem with the search wait about ten minutes and try again. Failing that, add this link to your toolbar or save it with your bookmarks: https://www.google.com/cse?cx=007640456958190664848%3A-oh1odvwcd8&ie=UTF-8&q=#gsc.tab=0 (Google Custom Search)

If all else fails, your computer was kidnapped by aliens and infected with revolutionary ideas. It must be destroyed by mailing it to my address.

Computers with Windows 8 aren't susceptible to kidnapping, so don't bother. Windows Vista and 7, MacBooks, iPads and tablets are the most at risk, send them over.

I'm quite sure I've understood what you meant and, if I'm right, you should read the post above yours.

I do not reupload books I posted in Requests section. Please request again.

When you use the search and get no results even though you know there should be some results, the most logical reason is (guess what?) that the search function is not functioning. Next time it happens, please think: why isn't the post/author you're looking for showing up? The answer is that there can only be two reasons:

    1) the search is not working, or
    2) the post is gone.


How to find out which case it is?
- First step: make sure that the search is actually working by entering the name of a prolific author like Nora Roberts or James Patterson. If you still get no results, the obvious conclusion is that the search function is definitely not functioning (point 1). Please use this Google Custom Search link offered in the post above by zackddog and be patient until the search gets fixed.

- Second step: if you have made sure that the search works but you still can't find the post/author, contact a moderator to find out what happened to the post/author (point 2). There are several reasons for a post/author to have been removed, in addition to the very interesting scenarios provided above by zackddog :)


NOTES:
    1. The features "View my posts" and "View my topics" are both perfomed by the search engine; if the search is not working those features will not be available.

    2. There are two additional posts on how to narrow down a search and how to simplify a difficult search (names with initials), the Advanced Search never fails:

The aliens are a bunch of racists, that's why.

And they think that Windows 8 is the biggest turd dropped by Microsoft since Windows 97.

Hi canmus PM about this to MODS they will take care of it. It may be they will move the post in expired ebooks section. And somebody like me will Re-post the book. :)

In these situations, it's better to just directly PM a MOD.

This way, it's dealt with as quickly as possible by whichever mod gets to it first.

Also, can you PM me a link to the thread in question and I'll see what can be done?

Hola :D

For the past week or so, when I click on the little blue arrow for Tusfiles, this is what I get:

Image

It's always 3.6 MB, but it's not the e-book, it's a file called mobilism.org. ??


If I copy and paste the link into the premium downloader, I get the same result.
Also, when clicking on the blue arrow for Zippy link, I get a "file not found" msg, but if I go directly to the zippy page, the file is there! Anyone else experiencing this?
