Re: Problems with Yad Vashem Website #hungary

In case this helps others: I was unable to open the "search shoah victims database" (the picture of the little girl) >from the yad vashem home page - clicking anywhere on the picture, or where it said "click here" just didn't do anything. and if you can't get to the search page, you can't look up pages of testimony, etc.

I found that I could get to the database by going to the yad vashem site's search page first (http://www1.yadvashem.org.il/search/index_search.html) - >from there the blue link to "search the central database" at the top of the page works fine. it would seem that in changing the home page, someone forgot to put in the link. (or maybe it just doesn't work correctly on my combination of system and browser?)

ps. I reported this problem to yad vashem already.

On Yom Hashoah, we [Yad Vashem] put up a whole new site. We did this
in order to integrate a Russian interface for the site, a very
important move as we have also started a project to collect Pages of
Testimony among Russian speaking Jews. The project is currently
being carried out in the Ukraine and in Israel.

Like most new sites, the new site has bugs. We have sorted out most
of the bugs, but the site is still not as stable as the site we had
before Yom Hashoah. At this point, most of the time it works fine,
but problems occur every few days. Our computer people are working
hard to solve the problems as quickly as possible.

PLEASE write us at central.database@... if you encounter
technical problems with our site. We usually aren't able to answer
you quickly enough to help you, but you help us (and yourself in the
long run) by making sure we know all the problems that exist.
