On the homepage, in the right side panel there is a list of categories. After doing an Advanced search in the YumYum Recipe database, the url was copied and put in the appropriate link. If you click on any of those categories it will take you to the results of that search.

Today, in attempting the same action, when clicking on a link and copying the link for viewing, it does not bring up the list of found recipes . . . it just brings up the Advanced Search boxes.

Here is the result of a search for chicken. It should list 69 chicken recipes.

Here is a link to the page; scroll down to the list and click on the category "Chicken".

Removed another idiotic "failed" attempt. Don't want anyone to get confused by me. I'm confused enough all by myself.

Nope . . doesn't work.

I can tell you this . . . when I copy the results of a search into a Word document, I can click on the url in the document and it takes me straight to the populated list.

I just copied the same url from the Word doc and pasted it in the above post and that one does not work.

When I copy the url into "Your Message" the string looks right but it is being altered when you click on "Finished".

Edited to add that I had forgotten that I had to use BB code.

If I go to chicken listed down the right ride I see all 69 entries and picke d this one, http://cubits.org/YumYum/db/yumyumrecipies/view/9417/

I went to your database and in the advanced search brought up Asian chicken and got this link http://cubits.org/YumYum/db/yumyumrecipies/view/9417/ same thing it took me too.

If I understand this right, your tryign to post a link someplace else and want it to show up right?

I was trying to this morning create link in my information box and had to go up and click on the help button and find out again what the bb cod e was for posting in a thread a link. http://cubits.org/special/pages/bbcode.php

Did you put the proper bbcode for connecting the link first.

If you don't want it to show everything you can make it so that you cna type a word that will be the link too. Like how up in my front info page you read and then you see the word Here!! which is the word they click on that take s them right to the link with out the long stuff showing.

I did something similar in my cubit with advanced search links in the right info box. I could not make them work if I did the advanced search using Firefox, so after a few days of trying and trying and getting disgusted, I tried doing the advanced searches with IE and the links worked when I copied them! With IE I got % signs not brackets. The bracket signals the end of the link and makes it malfunction, but the % sign is ignored.

Here's an example of what I got using IE (I had to add quote marks to get it to display)

"http://cubits.org/recipefile/db/therecipefile/search/advanced.php?tf%5B871%5D=&box%5B903%5D%5B3845%5D=on&tf%5B921%5D=&submit=Search%21"

Here's the result from an advanced search I just ran in your database for quick and easy recipes. I used Internet Explorer instead of Firefox. I added the quote marks to make the search results display here and took them off when I put the results in BBCode.

"http://cubits.org/yumyum/db/yumyumrecipies/search/advanced.php?tf%5B1401%5D=&tf%5B1403%5D=&tf%5B1418%5D=&tf%5B1414%5D=&tf%5B1802%5D=&tf%5B1419%5D=&box%5B1413%5D%5B5407%5D=on&tf%5B1420%5D=&select%5B1425%5D=&submit=Search%21"

Quick and Easy

Thank you so much Pat . . it finally sunk into this old brain. You can't just copy the url and post it.

It has to be imbedded in BB code.

my bad

Oh dear! I was so wrapped up in trying to figure out how a search engine operates it never occured to me that the problem was in how you added the link!

Hurray! patrob
