I just thought of this....
When I'm on any other part of the site except for the homepage, I have to go to another page on the site using a dropdown menu for advanced search. I was looking at a Jimmy Smith poster and wanted to do a new search, just a basic one but my choices were to go to the home page or go to the advanced search page.

What about in the blank space in the menu bar to the right have a quick search box?

That's my suggestion for the day, thanks again for everything!!!![/b]

That's pretty cool. I'll check it on my mac version of firefox.

But, what about the other 92% of the people that don't use firefox?

:)

go to the ADVANCED SEARCH page
http://www.expressobeans.com/search.php?build=1
and there is a little link next to the one for GET FIREFOX.

Everyone should switch to firefox. I feel bad for the poor saps who are stuck with MSIE! Microsquish bites!

So this will be a feature in the new site design. Just have to be a little patient. :)

Oh.. I'm patient alright... you have all been patient with me..

Safari should be supported, it's the main browser for mac users... dammit.

Well there's your problem right there. :P


(sorry, I just don't like Macs. But then again, I have so little I ever have to do in my life on a computer, so I tend to stick with the little knowledge I have)

I don't really like pcs... I just set one up at home for my wife to direct connect to work and it was pain in the ass to integrate into my mac network. It was all set on the mac side, just magically appeared, its the pc side that gave me a headache.
I will never willingly give up my apple products.

I am pretty sure that this is not the case. The #1 browser on OSX is FireFox. Anyway, I develope EB on OSX using FireFox. I don't hate PC's. I just hate windows.
