There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Unhappy Search MENU bar DISAPPEARED !?!

This is very frustrating. I have tried everything I can think of to fix it.

I am running 2.8.6 and just today my search screen menu bar has totally disappeared. When I do searches now, I can see the number of entries, however the actual list of files that i would click to download is no longer available. Instead it is just solid WHITE screen. (All other menus appear normally.)

Has anyone had or seen this problem? Does anyone know the fix?

I have attempted the REPAIR option, and it fails claiming that it cannot run the /temp/LimeWire*.msi file (even though I checked and its all THERE in the correct path its asking for). I have completely removed it, rebooted, reinstalled. And I have even attempted to install a previous version 2.8.5, but to no avail. The only version that seems to work is 2.3.3.

I run Windows 2000 with JRE 1.4.1_01.

Does anyone have any NEW thoughts how to get LimeWire fixed and working?? Thanks.

Delete the program folders of all 2.8.* and 2.7.* versions and reinstall. I don't see any other solution.

Actually, I had already done that 3 times before posting above.

To No Avail. Something is SET wrongly or corrupted in my computer that affects ONLY limewire versions above 2.3.3, and only the menu bar, and only the one menu bar associated with the search screen.

It didn't work reinstalling after uninstalling, and completely deleting all directories for limewire under program files (where I install). Thank you for the suggestion. Do you have any others??

Default Still not there

I'm assuming that since no one responded... no one has ever had this problem. I have done disk checks, windows registry repairs, and completely deleted limewire (including the program files directory), rebooted many times, and reinstalled from scratch, yet nothing brings it back..

Still as first reported... there is a missing "screen". When I search, i can see everything normally in the lower 'downloading files' section, I can also see the 'download', 'chat', and 'browse host' buttons on the middle bar just fine. I can see the little "X" up top for each search, including the text being searched and the (#) number results found tab. However.... NOTHING but white screen remains when a tab is clicked. And no blue buttons to show name, size, stars, connection type, or any thing else that is supposed to be in the blue button bar. Its just GONE. It never comes back. I cannot use limewire like this.

All other screens remain in perfect condition. Any suggestions??? Coders have any clues of what broke, or how to fix it, since reinstalling doesnt change anything?

Default Need Help - LimeWire Broken!

The problem still persists, and after weeks, no one has had the solution. Its probably not as hard as it seems, yet it eludes us all.

For the most complete description of the problem, including a few things not found in this link..... click and read (at least the post there with COLOR in it) on this thread ---->>

Any suggestions are very appreciated. At this point, the white top right area of the search RESULTS window fail to ever show up. It appears to be a corruption related to startup, perhaps a missing or broken file. Reinstalling has no effect for fixing the problem. Perhaps something is sticking in the registry regardless of uninstalling. Hmmmmmm..... Click that Link and I'll check back here and there, for any replies. Thanks.

Default Sorry this is all i can think of

This is all I can think of man,you can try Aqualime,its a really nice version of limewire with all the features amd works pretty much exactely the same with a lil better interface and a Jabber chat feature.Since limewire does not work you may wanna try this.It is built from limewires source code and is almost EXACTELY the same so try it.(Its also up to date,latest version is 2.8.6c)

A link to the latest version is .try it,hope it helps,any questions bout it you could probably ask me..jus PM.

Thanks. I downloaded Aqualime and it works just fine.

I also tested every version i could find, and now I have figured out where the problems lie. The LimeWire coders changed something major about the window format from 2.7 to 2.8, because none of the 2.8 or 2.9 will work. The Download Results Menu is wiped clean at all times, regardless if i search or not.

I am disappointed that they never got this fixed. I suppose I'm the only one to have this problem. Oh well. I guess I'll just use other software from now on.

the best I can think of, Cougar, is to update your video drivers. a bunch of us develop using w2k and JDK 1.4.1, and we have experienced no problem. in fact, i wouldn't even know where to begin looking for a problem like this.

All Drivers are and were updated.

However, you solved this exact problem in another link in another thread, when you said to add fields to the (formerly blank) file called Display.props. Thank you for that Answer. Everything works now, so far as this Menu issue is concerned.
