This is a *really* little thing, perfectly capable of being painlessly ignored by all of us, and I only bring it up because I stumble on it once in a while---

When I am on 'recent posts', ther is a tab at the top for 'my recent posts' that is perennially broken, so worthless. Why not just get rid of it?

For pretty much the same info, I just click on 'my account' and my own 'track' and I get what I need for the same.

Like I said, a total micro-mini-issue.

I've been meaning to ask you this for ages - but could you suppress the Endangered Phoenix section of the library, which only has one text, submitted by Catch - on Oxford and the Blackbird Leys riots in the early 90s; I've just copied it and put it in the endangeredphoenix section (it would be prefereable if this was changed into 2 words - endangered phoenix, but I don't know how to do this). Also, how do i put a pdf in the library? (want to put "rebel violence v hierarchical violence" from 1986 there; must admit it hasn't come out that well, but it's more or less readable) .

Since the site was redone I have not got a convenient way to get to forums as it does not appear any more in the list across the top. At the moment I am going to "About the site" and scrolling down to "discussions" before getting to them. I must be missing something (half a brain probably) Is there a quicker way?

In the thread "Fragmented thoughts on political organisation" it looks like I had some admin rights i.e. after the related articles there was red writing saysing "configure this bloc", also when I hovered over pictures it gave me options of "edit, clone" etc. And this was all before I had logged in!

The search button in the top right doesn't seem to be working, just says, "Your search yielded no results". I typed in "architecture", then "Colin Ward" and got nothing. Then went for "Bakunin" and "the" just to check, but still nothing.

Oh, also when I'm on a particular forum, say general, and I click "next" or "page 2", it doesn't got there, only goes to this other screen.

Most likely my computer.

this is an intermittent problem, which we've tried to fix but so far been unable to. You can use a workaround, however which is to right click the "next page" link and click "copy shortcut", then paste that in the address bar.

We hope the issue will be resolved when we upgrade

In reply to by libcom.org

So, listen, I don't know if this is the right place. I apologize if it isn't. I don't want to be "that guy," and I don't want anyone to take time they don't have to fix this. I just want a little help. So please don't take this post the wrong way.

First, let me say I'm new here and have never posted articles/books here before this weekend. So naturally I had my share of confusion. I am trying to fix my mistakes, but the material I posted has remained pending moderation for two days now. I don't know if that is normal. I understand that I wrote a long thing, and moderators may want to read it to make sure it's appropriate. But my big issue is that I screwed up the order of the chapters. I believe I made the appropriate edits to fix it, but they aren't showing up. Maybe I did it wrong.

This is what I posted. I also posted a comment on the book explaining what I need fixed. I think, for the sake of moderation and ensuring the acceptability of this literature, it's best to have the chapters in the right order. Can someone please fix it? My changes aren't showing up, probably due to moderation. Just have a look at it and my comment on the main page explaining what got screwed up.

http://libcom.org/library/authentic-organizing-ideas-reviving-grassroots

Again, I don't expect people to take time they don't have to help me. I don't want to seem self-important. It just really, really bothers me that I screwed up and everyone can see it. I just want the chapters in the right order.

Thanks.

I couldn't create a new topic in the forum, so I'm posting this here:

When I access libcom.org on Firefox or Chrome, I am led to http://libcom.org/ (the insecure HTTP site) by default.  If I want to access the secure HTTPS site, I have to change it manually to https://libcom.org/.  Obviously, manually typing in "https" doesn't require much effort, so it might not seem like a big deal, but having HTTP as the default can pose security risks.  For example, when I was logging in a few minutes ago, I didn't notice I was on the HTTP site and was about to enter my username and password, which could then have been intercepted by a third party (e.g. my ISP).  Is there any way you could configure the site to make HTTP automatically redirect to HTTPS?

On a somewhat related note, has libcom.org considered running an onion service?  It would barely put any additional strain on servers and it would enable people to access the site more securely and anonymously.

this has been a problem for a long time, it also occurs when looking at tags

you can work around it by any of using right click and open link in new tab, copying the link and pasting it into the address bar then going to the adress, draging the link to the bar of the browser where the links go, or adding ?page=1 to the end of the address in the address bar and incrementing it for each new page eg ?page=2 ?page=3 etc

for a real solution libcom needs to update their software, but this is a thing that has been going to happen for a long time and i think they dont have the time or money

I think I read in another post that the in-site search engine for libcom had gone wonky and so the site administrators got rid of it. That said, you can search the Libcom using Google.com search by typing site:libcom.org into the Google.com search bar followed by whatever word(s) your looking for specifically.

For example, say you want to search Libcom.org for "anarcho-syndicalism" using Google.com search, then you would type: site:libcom.org "anarcho-syndicalism" into the Google.com search bar and then click "Google Search" for the results. Basically, the same for anything else you want to search Libcom for.
