I tried to post this on Banjo Buyer but did not find anyplace to contact a webmaster or anybody else.
The problem is:
I do a search for a particular brand of banjo and the search feature works fine, but when I go to “save this search” there is no tab to save the search or put in my email address. Despite what it says....just click on the tab, add my email and your set....there is no tab to click on. I have looked and looked and looked.
I have saved searches before, but for some reason this feature is no longer showing up on my IPad. The result is I cannot save a search.

the only thing I can think of is maybe it is related to doing it on an IPAD. I just did what you are trying to do and it worked.

That's odd. So you don't see the email box right next to the "Save This Search" button? Here's what I see...

Thank you for responding Eric. I initially thing that "gbisignani" was right, that the problem was with some of the funny software on my IPad, but I tried to respond to your inquiry by posting "what I see" on the BHO with my IPad and it would not take the picture on the BHO website because IPads save screenshots in some odd format. I therefore went and fired up my PC that saves photos in jpeg format and did a screen capture. Seems that my PC has the same issue on the Banjo Buyer, no place to save search or put my email address. See attached image from a screen capture on my PC.
I type in Pisgah banjo and it finds one, but that is not a model I am looking for so if I try to save my search, to look for any others in the future that may pop up, I get this response. am I doing something wrong?

Eric,
I may have a clue to the glitch. When I search for a Pisgah banjo under open backs, it finds one, just not the model I am looking for, but I would like to continue the search when another model comes up, but do not have the option of saving the search.
BUT when I accidentally typed in PIsgah banjo, but under bluegrass banjos, it came up with nothing, BUT then the option of "saving the search" feature came up.

But I notice on the picture you posted, you obviously looked for some banjo, found them and the "save this search' tab was there. You must have some pull on this website!

"Save this search" only shows up on the search results page. It doesn't show up on the page for a particular classified ad's details, as that's not a search... that's a particular ad! What would we save if we saved that search--the model of the banjo? The make? Price?

So do a search of some sort--click a particular brand from the list, or use the search form. You should see the option to save your search on that results page which lists multiple banjos for sale.

Sorry Eric, I must be dumb as a rock. I just did another search, filled in the boxes and I still cannot find a "save search" tab anywhere on my screen. I did another screen capture. See attached image.

That screenshot isn't search results, Dogfeathers. That's the homepage.

Eric,
The search results is the screenshot a couple posts above. No “save search” tab there either. I type in my banjo brand in the search box, hit "go" it takes me to one banjo that is not the model I want, NO save search tab is shown on that page. Pardon my empty head but no matter what I try to do here, no "save search" tab shows up in any procedure I take.

Eric,
There is a glitch relating to several brand of banjos. If I type in several well known banjos the “save search” tab is there plain as day, but when I type in pisgah or quail creek banjos, no “save search” tab appears.
