For those long-term users of TRIP you’ll possibly notice that our advanced search is prone to breaking and I have no idea why this is. Only recently we spent an age fixing the previous break (see recent notification of fix). It has now broken again. This is tremendously frustrating for us and our users.

Given our current overhaul of the site we’re going to build the advanced search from scratch. This should mean that previous problems (possible caused by building new code on older unstable code) will be eliminated. Given the history I’m not saying it’ll never break again, but by going back to nothing and starting again we’re giving ourselves the best chance.

Timetable: We envisage the new code being released at the same time as the rest of the new site, so about 4-6 weeks.

Once again apologies for the poor service but bear with us the new site will be well worth the wait.
