Can't load preferred enabled sites to bottom of page 1 of RootsSearch

+5 votes
I cannot change the sites listed at the bottom of page 1 of RootsSearch. For example, there are six sites listed at the bottom of page 1 and I wanted to delete some of those and add others. On page 2, I disabled sites I didn't want and enabled ones I did and they didn't load on page 1 even if I disabled all but one site on page 2. I closed out RootsSearch and later even closed out wikitree and re-started them, and the sites still didn't change at the bottom of page 1. You can look at Lansing-1015 to see what I'm describing but it's happening in all of the profiles for which I am manager. Thanks for any help you can give me!

I tried to replicate your problem, but RootsSearch is working OK for me.

I went to a profile, clicked the RootsSearch link, and logged in. Then on the main RootsSearch page, I clicked on the "More sites" link at the lower right. That took me to the page where I could Enable or Disable certain websites. I disabled MyHeritage and enabled AmericanAncestors. Then I used my browser's back button to go back to the first screen, and the list at the bottom of the screen included AmericanAncestors instead of MyHeritage. And when I clicked on a link at the bottom of the screen, I got search results from the website I expected to get results from.
Glad that works for you but it hasn't worked for me as I said in my query! Perhaps it has something to do with software fix to the browser I was using for this site which is Microsoft Edge? I just now decided to use wikitree in the Google Chrome browser and now RootsSearch does work as it is supposed to, showing enabled sites on the bottom of page 1. I guess I just needed to think about this in the morning when I think more clearly! So the answer is to use a web browser like Chrome to get RootsSearch to work as it doesn't work in Microsoft Edge. Thanks for making me think outside the box!
