Am I the only one who has problems with the search results links?

Whenever I do a search (using either the search box on the right hand top corner (NOT the Google custom search) or the box on the left hand side further down the page), I get a list of posts, but whenever I click on the post links to further explore the results, I can't get any further and get this error message:

1. Using Opera on a Mac:

"The URL was redirected to [some url] . Please click the link to go there."

I then click the link given in the url but it just keeps throwing me back to the same error message.

2. Using Firefox on a Mac:

"The page isn't redirecting properly
Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

* This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept
cookies."

3. Using Firefox on a Windows PC:

"Redirect Loop
Redirection limit for this URL exceeded. Unable to load the requested page. This may be caused by cookies that are blocked."

It's very frustrating and also happens with Advanced Search. What am I doing wrong? It used to work fine for me before :?:

Hi there,

There is a bug in the forum search that makes this happen. I have it on my to-do list to fix this... It seems like it does not always get into this re-directing loop, but it does sometimes. Not sure if it has to do with searches that has several words in it or not.

Please feel free to use the other search box (just under) from google. This searches this site and some other pilgrims related sites in one go. Google has indexed the site a lot better lately, but I know it is not perfect.

I hope to look into this soon :)

Greetings from Santiago,
Ivar

Thanks Ivar. It's a shame there is a bug. I quite like the proper forum search because the length of the extracts in the search results makes it really easy to quickly spot which results are relevant and which are not. I'll use the Google search for now.
