They did. It was just that one page. Now that it's been broken down, no more problems. Perhaps I'd better avoid the Song Title Game thread though, LOL!

Hoot, you're pretty computer savvy. And since my question to Janet (who had replied to this thread) was apparently too hard to answer, if a person were to do an advanced search using the thread name and that thread had been split, does it still search both parts of the thread?

For example: if I remembered a user's name and them posting a recipe called "Darn good brownies", but don't know if it was in 2013 or back farther (the other part of the thread), will the search engine know where to look, in both parts?

It should. I do know that sometimes Google is better at finding things here than the DC search tool. For instance, you might enter darn good brownies discuss cooking in the Google search window and it generally displays a link to that post.

I sometimes use Google's advanced search where you can limit your search to a specific domain.

Also, If you search for darn good brownies and the members name for all of DC rather than just one thread, you'd get what you want.

Or search in a specific forum or subforum. But I often use Google, too. You can restrict a search to a specific site by using this syntax in Google's search box:

site:discusscooking.com "man catcher brownies" GotGarlic

I knew that. I just think of them as one since Google developed the Chrome OS, right? Or at least they're very closely interconnected.

I don't speak "Tech", that's Himself's domain. When he starts getting me all confused with too much tech talk I just confuse him back by replying in "Culinary". Those two "languages" are about as different from each other as speaking "man" or "woman".

Google developed the Chrome internet browser. It's not an OS (operating system). Google also bought, but didn't originally develop, the Android mobile OS, and it has developed dozens of other programs. As a former network/desktop tech support specialist I think it's important to use the correct terminology as much as possible, to avoid misunderstandings, although I know a lot of non-techie people often don't know the details.

One example I used to hear all the time is "My Adobe doesn't work." Well, Adobe is a software manufacturer, not a program, and they make a lot of programs. So then I needed to ask more questions or go to their office to find out exactly what the problem was Fun, fun, fun!

So, I guess I speak both!
