    Can't find previous thread

    Comment
    Several weeks ago I posted a query in this forum under the title "Die Stadt der Bewegung". There were several messages in the discussion, and I found out the information I was looking for.

    Today I tried to find that thread again using the Search Forum button, using the same title. But there were no hits. I looked at my notes and found that I had saved the exact URL, which is   related discussion no longer available  ", so I was able to jump directly to the thread.

    I also tried to find using the vocabulary search, with the search term Stadt Der BEwegung, but got only a bunch of vocabulary entries, as expected (many pages). Sometimes after listing vocabulary entries LEO will go to find search terms in titles of forums, but not this time.

    Any ideas why I couldn't find the thread using the standard LEO search features?

    Thanks.

    "Any ideas why I couldn't find the thread using the standard LEO search features?"

    Probably because LEO has been on the fritz for a while now. Some sort of technical problem that has to do with the fact that LEO was moved to new servers. But don't despair, the LEO team are already on it and I'm sure everything will be back to normal in a few weeks.

    In the meantime, you can use Google to find LEO threads if you know their title: "Stadt der Bewegung" site:leo.org

    eric,

    I did the following:
    google search for 'dictforum "Stadt der Bewegung"'
    click on 'Im Cache' of the very first entry
    click on the link (4th entry)
    here it goes
    Topic:
    Die Stadt der Bewegung

    Comment:
    A friend has written me a note in which he said that Nürnberg has recently been referred to as "die Stadt der Bewegung". I'm not sure he's right, since I can't find any reference to this phrase through Google. Does anyone know?

    Also, what does Bewegung refer to in this case? I've checked LEO and I know the variety of meanings, but I don't know which is likely to be meant in this case. Possibly this refers to the Nazi political movement (=Bewegung)?

    Thanks.

    As far as I know "Hauptstadt der Bewegung" referred to Munich, not Nuremberg. And yes, the movement in question was the Nazi party. Nuremberg was called "Stadt der Reichsparteitage".

    @ Norbert Juffa

    Does "Stadt der Reichsparteitage" mean "City of the days of the Ruling Government Party" ?

    @minu: not exactly.
    Wikipedia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N[...] ) übersetzt "Reichsparteitag" mit "Nuremberg Rally", oder "literally: national party congress"

    "Stadt der Reichsparteitage" wird dann entweder recht hölzern zu
    "[Nuremberg, ] City of the Nuremberg Rallies"
    oder
    "[Nuremberg, ] City of the national party congresses"

    Oh! Thanks!
    :)

    That's an interesting translation, and information about the city of Nuremberg, where I have been, roaming through the magnificiant collections of the Germanische Museum, inside the city palace walls, through saint Martha and Clara's churches, oblivious to this fact!
    :)

    I'm pasting the URL here, but don't know for sure if it's going to work:

    @HM: You suggestion works perfectly.

    @Peter <de>: I can't get your suggestions to work, although you obviously did. I apparently am misunderstanding your directions. In any case, I do now have one way and that works for me.

    I notice that when I have the full URL of the original discussion, it works, but when I try to paste it into a LEO message, it's replaced by "earlier discussion no longer available" (though it is available on a direct jump).

    Thanks to you both.

    eric,

    sorry to hear you couldn't get my directions to work for you. Have I been to short-lipped (is this a word, for succinct?)?

    The way I was describing usually gets me to retrieve old discussions from the net, that is:
    I add the keyword 'dictforum' to my search string (the latter one often enclosed in double quotes to ensure a restricted search).
    More often than not, I have to use the cached version of the hit, not the URL itself, for reasons I'm totally unaware of, as was the case here.
    The cached page showed your query as the fourth entry, I clicked on it, there I was.

    @ Peter <de>

    But in this particular case, I knew the origin date of this discussion.
    So I simply went through the forum pages, found it out, and gave a follow-up reaction! There it was then, right on the start page one, as a new follow-up entry for the 26th of July!
    What say?
    :)
    But it seems that eric(New York) is finding it hard to locate and read it EVEN now!
    :(

    Don't be too impatient, minu, each one of us has their affairs which keep them from constantly looking into LEO's.
    Lucky you and your steadfast memory, my way to search is suited more for elder people like me ;-)

    Thank God!
    I thought I had become transparent!
