OTN PeopleBooks

Does anyone else have the problem that the OTN PeopleBooks search function isn't working on some of the PeopleBooks? I use the Campus Solutions books a lot and most of the time the search isn't working at all:

http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17221_01/cs9pbr2/eng/psbooks/index.htm

I'm using Firefox. The page just seems to load endlessly, but the search isn't appearing.

    I had the same issue yesterday with PeopleTools peoplebooks. Finally i ended up opening multiple books and search using Index.

    Michel,

    I have the same issue with your url.

    Is the given link come from the main page of hosted Peoplebooks ?
    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17566_01/epm91pbr0/eng/psbooks/psft_homepage.htm
    The link to CRM out there returns a page where 'search' feature works well.

    Nicolas.

    PS: I should rather say it works every other time...

    Yeah it is a link from that page. The link I posted is what you end up with when clicking a link through the advanced search. The link from that page directly has the same problem by the way:

    http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E29376_01/hrcs90r5/eng/psbooks/index.htm

    It's something that occurs pretty often on the Campus Solutions books and it is extremely annoying to say the least.

    Since Oracle themselves promote this site to be included into production environement as a "help link", you could raise a SR to the support.
    You could also create a thread in the documentation forum which is monitored by Oracle people or if you prefer I can also moved this one out there.

    If you could move this one that'd be great.

    Thread moved from Peoplesoft to "Oracle Discussion Forums » Technology Network Community » Documentation".
    Hoepefully, some people from Oracle are listening over here.

    I hope so as well.. This is also an interesting one by the way:

    The page http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E17566_01/epm91pbr0/eng/psbooks/psft_homepage.htm where all the books are linked has this comment on the bottom of the page:

    "Post comments and questions regarding Hosted PeopleBooks in the PeopleSoft Information Development Forum."

    The PeopleSoft Information Development forum is probably an internal Oracle site (http://myforums.oracle.com/jive3/forum.jspa?forumID=4783) which is not accessible by non-Oracle employees.

    And in addition, none of the links on the top right of the pages (search/help/accessibility) are working.

    An other way to complain, post a comment in the peoplesoft tech. blog hosted by Oracle which announced the Peoplebooks availability 3 years ago...

    I've posted a comment there. Hopefully it will get some attention.
