I can get into the site and do a search but if I try to look at Books Posted Today it shows nothing has been posted.  If I click on the previous days this week, it only shows about 150 a day.  Does anyone know what's going on?

I have no problems seeing what's going on.  I see almost 500 books posted in last hour.

Julie, when you are on the Books Posted Today page, try clicking on "view all of today's postings".  Maybe you have it set to view just a particular genre.

Or it could be a browser issue.  It's working fine for me in Firefox.

What browser are you using Julie? I have a lot of the problems on the site on my computer that has automatically updated to IE11. Can't get to many places on the site with that machine right now. I am using Chrome when I can and find no problems in that.

Shortly after I posted the original question, the search function was working properly again.  Today it's not.  I have tried going into pbs.com through Chrome, Firefox and Explorer.  I have cleared the cache and deleted all temporary internet files.  The last thing I guess I'll try is uninstalling pbs.com entirely and then reinstalling.  But if that doesn't work, then the problem is at pbs.com's end, even if it isn't affecting everyone.

That feature does not seem to work on my iPad using Safari.

I am going to check a couple other site features that have a 'live' update.  BRB

Okay, books posted today/all of the hours show as zero but going back to previous days the numbers vary.

Under the hood is very slow, but moving andthe scroll on the home page (with the quote) is slow too, but it's also moving.
