Posta certain website (not this one) broken (for me)

https://somekindofwebsitethatIuse.com/


I quite like checking out this site to get an idea of how much of my time is likely to be drained from me when I'm choosing a game.

However, since fannying about with my PC (I think that's when it happened) I can't use this site any more.

In the search box, I can type a game title, but pressing <Enter> doesn't register. So I can't search at all.

I've tried different browsers with this and it still doesn't work. All other websites that I've tried seem to work fine.

Is it just me?

Anyone had an experience like this, and knows how to fix it?

Many thanks,

Lime

Just tried it on my phone and it's ok. It auto-searches as you type, so no need to press enter. Is that something they added recently that could be causing your issue?

Aha it seems to be my antivirus software.

Somehow I will need to find my own way around this.

Edit: And done. Antivirus knickers untwisted.

Spambots take note: This is how to make a thread stealthily plugging a site ;)

Good point!

I had no problems accessing http://grview.grcade.co.uk/ or www.grcade.co.uk

My original post and thread title had a genuine URL in it, OR gently pointed out that it was like the perfect spambot.

I edited it to remove the references to the genuine website. Hope that clarifies!

I'm guessing the site in question was HowLongToBeat.com. Really handy site, that.
