I tried the searching using the search box at and and keep getting the error below.

This AskLO Q&A site is different from You should send the error message to their webmaster as instructed, not here.

I went the the "tdf" site and submitted a query. I got the same error as you. I think the only alternative to reach someone is to file a dumb bug report (the bug will be closed as soon as some developer/administrator sees it). Try that. It might be related to present abnormal behaviour here on AskLO (I no longer receive notifications and can't edit my questions and answers) after problems on the servers a couple of weeks ago.

I found no one to send the error message to. In a different post, I found a list of names from 2003. I guess I won't use their search bar then if it's going to be that complicated to find a webmaster.

This should have been a comment since it offers no solution.

Excuse me for the non-comment, I guess, but I thought I did make a comment. Sadly, I'm afraid to post in this help forum for fear of being reprimanded, when I only am asking for help.

You learn by mistakes. I admit the posting rules are not obvious. I remember when I started here getting my load of such remarks. Don"t hesitate to ask, even elementary questions, but always be accurate and informative and you'll be welcome.

As of today (2019-08-01), it seems the bugs site is operational again.

My guess is the bugs site was plagued by the same bug as the AskLO site (no more editing capability not notifications) after some mishap on the server infrastructure. The site administrators have put back pieces together. Thanks to them all.

You can now close your question as "not relevant, outdated" after checking the search feature.

Apologies, my finger slipped on the keyboard. I corrected the typo in my answer.

ajlittoz gravatar imageajlittoz ( 2019-08-01 11:35:23 +0100 )edit

Fixed the link and other typos as well. Coffee time?

@robleyd: thanks, I thought I did it, but writing a comment and simultaneously editing an answer sometimes has a race condition and one of the updates is lost. Another room for improvement? In addition, I was so happy things back to "normal", I didn't proof-read what I did.

I take good note. As a mere user, I was not aware of so many websites.
