• MORE main catalog search problem When users are logged in, searching from the catalog homepage's main blue search box doesn't work. Other search boxes work, and all search boxes work when not logged in. Removing cookies for the site does help temporarily. I've reported this to our vendor and will post an update when it's fixed. -Lori 05/24/2017 - 10:55am
  • Update: MORE My Account problem The problem with the main My Account screens is fixed as of late Tuesday (5-23). Background: there was a Sierra update late Friday (5-19) that created a problem with the main catalog's My Account--patrons couldn't renew, pay fines, manage holds, etc. from the main My Account screen. On Sunday (5-21), I temporarily changed the My Account link on the homepage to direct users to the Classic Account, which worked for all account functions until the Tuesday fix. -Lori 05/23/2017 - 6:37pm
