Please make searching in records easier. I'm sure I am not the only who has limited time to do family history. So, when I do, I'd like to get more accomplished and not waste time.
That's not actually a "no results" message. That's a "nah, I'm too lazy to do that right now" message. Reload/refresh the page and it should (eventually) actually do the search.
I have my FamilySearch home page set to search. When I open a new tab in FamilySearch, this is what I see:
And when I am concentrating on a particular place, I have tabs set for those specific locations.
It does -
@donmthomas It may have to do with the size of the window that you are using.
When I have my window slightly smaller, I lose the navigation bar. It is still there in the menu icon that has replaced my account picture in the top right hand corner.
Another possibility is what version of the page you are using. In this example, the window size is set at the same width. The new view (top) shows the navigation bar while the old view (bottom) does not. Again it shows the menu lines, where you can choose where to navigate.
@donmthomas I'm not doing ANYTHING special, different, or difficult. The word Search is at the top of the page every time.
Ah, the joys of adaptive web design.
@donmthomas, I agree that it shouldn't be this hard, but in case it wasn't clear from other posts, your view is a "condensed" one, where the top menu bar (containing Search, among others) has been hidden in the "hamburger menu" (the three lines at the top right, circled in orange in my screenshot of your screenshot).
Áine and I are apparently using a wider screen than you are, because we always see Family Tree, Search, Memories, Get Involved, and Activities across the top, after the FamilySearch logo-and-name. You'll notice that you just have the logo, not the name, to signal that it's a condensed/narrow view.
Even on my 15-inch laptop, I have the word "Search" and the rest of that row unless I zoom to 133% or more.
@W Andrews Thank you for taking time to send us your suggestion on what needs to be improved. This is been forwarded to the proper Project Manager.
