Before the end of 2017 the board will be down for a brief period of time for an upgrade.
Past experience says less than 30 minutes but I can't predict the future.
Also, there is a high probability that the forum will move to a different host, but that will not happen in 2017.
Thanks,
Doug

From my testing, you cannot directly from CAT programs using the SITE menu open more than one website.

I've tried: https://it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:S ... o+Parrillo | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:S ... o+Parrillo

but the feature sends the whole string to one site.

What COULD work but is beyond my capabilities, is having a proxy on your PC that intercepts the request and sends to both sites.

Maybe someone else has an idea.

I did have another idea and it does work..if you're fast enough.
Create the SITE code for the english and italian search individually.
Then assign a shortcut to each that are right next to each other (ie SHIFT+CTRL+1 and SHIFT+CTRL+2)
Then when search press the two shortcuts rapidly in succession.
If you're too slow it won't work, but a very quick response DOES work.
