Might be a tricky one to get fixed. In the meantime, if you don't know already, you can do a site search via google.

Just type 'site:libcom.org' followed by what ever you want to search for into Google.

An 'access denied' article is featured on the homepage

Can't remember what permissions I still have, but that is an Access Denied article for me, too. It's still on the front page as of today, too.

I've got mod permissions and it's an Access Denied article for me too. I I could remove it from the front page, but won't in case an admin want to figure out why this has happened.

Very weird. I don't see it on the front page but do see it in the tracker. Have passed it on.

Someone fixed it now, what I saw was that the access denied paged had been "featured on front page" so perhaps someone just made an accidental click?

It looked like an accidental click to me, so I just un-clicked it.

I'm trying to look beyond page 1 of the general forum but the links don't work, they just go to a general page about the general forum, if that makes sense.

this has been a problem for a long time, it also occurs when looking at tags

you can work around it by any of using right click and open link in new tab, copying the link and pasting it into the address bar then going to the adress, draging the link to the bar of the browser where the links go, or adding ?page=1 to the end of the address in the address bar and incrementing it for each new page eg ?page=2 ?page=3 etc

for a real solution libcom needs to update their software, but this is a thing that has been going to happen for a long time and i think they dont have the time or money

I have been unfairly banned off no reasoning. Can I be put in a message with a real admin so I can discuss this?

My bad, explanation etc is here.

Second account is banned too, if first one is reinstated it is unnecessary, if not same deal.

I think I read in another post that the in-site search engine for libcom had gone wonky and so the site administrators got rid of it. That said, you can search the Libcom using Google.com search by typing site:libcom.org into the Google.com search bar followed by whatever word(s) your looking for specifically.

For example, say you want to search Libcom.org for "anarcho-syndicalism" using Google.com search, then you would type: site:libcom.org "anarcho-syndicalism" into the Google.com search bar and then click "Google Search" for the results. Basically, the same for anything else you want to search Libcom for.

Google Search as above is a very poor and less accurate method if better than nothing.
