Problem with search engine

Recommended Posts

Using a Nexus tablet running under Android and using Chrome, I am often seeing the message "Insufficient number of arguments" when I conduct a search.

 

For example I have just attempted a search for Tonbridge school, when the response was

 

Insufficient number of arguments

 

And in the address field above

 

https://www.alamy.com/image-details-popup.asp?search=Tonbridge+school&submitsearch=Search&media_type=footage

 

If I leave the Alamy site and restart, the search works OK.

 

I have reported this in the past, and was asked to provide evidence. Not sure what else I can give.

 

Anyone else seen this?

So there's no footage of Tonbridge school?

Only 46 still images.

What's wrong with that?

Yes, I was looking for an image in The Times, and it was there. Don't know why I am getting this 

Insufficient number of arguments 

 

response.

But you did search from the footage box. Not from the all images box.

 

The Insufficient number of arguments error message probably indicates that you or the tablet inserted a character like @,", _ or * into the search string. The database took that as the start of a command, but nothing followed.

I used the standard image search facility that appears immediately you enter Alamy Wim.

 

While it is possible that I entered an illegal character - using the tablet incorrect typing is all too easy - I did repeat the exercise several times with the same result. It was only after I had restarted Alamy that the search worked properly.
