Cannot use "the search system"

Post by John Gray »

I've always used
https://www.eileensloungeDOTcom/search. ... nreadposts
to find unread posts, but now I get the message
Sorry but you are not permitted to use the search system.

What giveth?

(And I can't post the real link above, either!)

Yes, I have logged out and deleted all Eileen's Lounge cookies, then logged on again - same...

We're looking into it, sorry for the inconvenience. We hope to get it sorted out soon.

As long as I tweak the url in John's post:
a) to replace 'dot' with a '.'
b) remove the preceding 'www.'
it works for me.

If I don't strip off the 'www.' I appear to be logged out.

Yes!

By the way, the actual 'unread posts' link on the Portal, together with other links on that page, are OK

Most things should work again. For some reason, most permissions had been removed from "ordinary" users...
