Problem going back to list of threads when doing a search

Post by Geee » Thu Apr 30, 2009 2:45 pm

When I preform a search for a topic.  I get the list of possibles threads.  While going through the list I click on a thread.  Check it for what I am looking for.  Then when I click to go back (the back arrow) it brings up a page that cannot be found.  So I have to start a search all over again.  This function works on all the other forums I search in except here.  Any possible fixes?

Thanks.

When you get that, refresh the page and it brings you're search back. :D

Yeah it's a problem with the search session expiring. I do like newguyutah suggests - open threads that look interesting in new tabs. Then you don't have to keep going back/forward.

If you intend on looking through several pages worth of search, ie page 1,2,3,4 and you are getting the expired session error when you get around to the next pages, you can do the same tab trick and just open a handful of the pages of the search listed at the bottom as soon as you do the initial search. That way you will have 4 tabs full of search results and no way for them to expire before you check out all the threads.

Thanks guys.
The refresh worked that time around.  I was also doing the multiple tab session.  Problem was retraining myself to do it that way.  Before I new it I clicked on the thread and it was too late.  Would have to search again and try and remember which page of the search I was on.  Glad I wasn't the only one feeling the pain.

You can ctrl-click instead to make it a bit faster ;)
