Re: so many search items being missed...

I'm not sure what you mean when you say your search freezes. We're still talking about Direct Results, right? So you have the index window on the left and the craigslist window on the right. When you click on one of the items, that item opens up in the craigslist window. Then you're saying if you hi...

Re: so many search items being missed...

I got great search results all across CL. slowly things started to change......I think the real decline started about 3 yrs ago....but I digress. now I encounter mostly frustration when using this search tool so man...

Re: Combined Results - Expired or Deleted Ads

thx....I figured it had to be something like what you described.

it puzzles me that CraigsList and Google....etc inhibit people's ability to do quality searches.....it would only benefit them in the the long run.

Combined Results - Expired or Deleted Ads

personally I find the direct results tedious......so I opt for combined.

there are so many deleted or expired posts in the resulting search(es)....
