“I have tried several times to access ebay through your page and whatever I type in the search area doesn’t work. Pop-ups have been temporarily allowed but still nothing.The same page remains.
Can you tell me where I am going wrong please.”
‘I have … wrong please.’
I’m not clear on what the problem is. You’re not able to perform searches on typojoe?
I just tried a couple and it is working ok for me.
There are directions on the page as to how to do a search, basically just enter in your keyword or keyword phrase in the search ‘Enter search term or phrase here’, choose any or none of the advanced search options, and then click the ‘Search’ button shown in the bottom left part of the search box.
If you’re not having a problem with that, maybe you’re asking why the
results aren’t shown on ebay, but instead on a page that opens in typojoe?
We recently added the tab that shows the results on typojoe, because
misspelling searches take more than one search to perform, now that ebay has limited searches to 100 characters. We can do multiple searches for one misspelling search and combine all the results on the one typojoe results page, you can only do one search at a time when showing the results on ebay itself.
I’m guessing that that might be your issue? You want to see the results on ebay itself?
They results are still shown on ebay itself too, in a different tab in
your browser. Are you using a pda or phone to access typojoe? I’m not sure how that works on one of those, when multiple tabs are supposed to open up after doing a search.
I may have just confused you more, but if you can answer the questions or make it clear as to the problem, maybe I can help you out.
“I type in Dolce Gabbana in ‘term or phrase’ (on laptop) and click ‘search’.
Then a message comes up to say ‘pop ups blocked’ so I click ‘temporarily allow pop-ups’ and it still stays on the same page with nothing changed. If I search again the same thing happens. All I get is the pop up message and no different page.”
That sounds like an issue with your browser settings. As you wrote, you should be able to turn off ‘pop up’ blocking, but if that is not working for you, maybe try a different browser.
If you’re using IE, maybe try Firefox, or vice versa.
If you disabled the pop up blocker on your current browser, it should be
working however. Maybe get into your browser settings and disable it from there, instead of using the temporarily allow pops option.
Hopefully one of those things will get it working for you.
