Foodnetwork.com or Diner's, Drive-ins & Dives (bad search function)

  • I really like going to the restaurants featured in Diners, Drive-ins & Dives. Been to about 40 of them.

    The place to locate those sites is horrible. Here's the direct link:

    I've tried in Opera, Edge (IE), Chrome, FF and haven't had very much success. For instance, I'll start typing Duluth into the search box and an autocomplete box comes up saying Duluth, MN. I click on that and nothing, its all blank. At this point if you look in your address bar you can see that Duluth is included in the name. But the map is blank. Hit F5 to refresh the page though and I can get a map MOST of the time!!! Just worked in Edge but not in Chrome. Haha, just tried again in Edge and this time it didn't work!

    Using Opera 39 with an ad blocker and other extensions. But my installs of IE, Chrome & FF are stock install.

  • I've tried in Opera, Chrome and Firefox and the map isn't shown. I've just saw it for a while in Chrome.

    It seems to be a site issue.

    I'll bite! LOL I have had extremely poor success with contacting larger company's on the web. I did send them a very detailed report though. I'm not expecting much.

    Holy Batman! They replied!!!

    Thank you for taking the time to reach out to us. Our web team is aware of the ongoing issues with our Restaurants map, and they are working to get this resolved in the future. In the mean time, it may help you to search by host instead of by show, as generally the results are returned more reliably when searching by host.

    Of course I wrote right back and said that searching by host doesn't really work until you hit the F5 key.

    What the heck, just wanted to double check in FF and its working good searching by show. Fails in IE, Chrome, and Opera 39.xxx though.
