Forums: Admin Central Index Technical Help Search bar is broken

Hi, I'm an admin on the Cyber Nations Wikia and the search function is broken. For instance you can type the exact page name and hit the Enter key(example pic) and it will take you to the related search page(example pic) and not to the page itself(example pic). However if you type in the search bar and the popup of article names comes up and you manually click with your mouse(example pic) it WILL take you directly to the page. Is there any way to fix the search bar for the entire wiki so people who aren't logged in as well as logged-in-users can search the way it was originally up until a few days ago? I know it can be fixed on an individual user basis but that doesn't solve the problem, only masks it for those few users who know how to use/copy the JS. Thank you for any assistance that might be provided.    RogalDorn  talk    06:15, Tuesday, 29 May 2012 (EST)

As this is a wiki-wide change, there is no wiki-wide fix as it goes against the Terms of Use. However, there is now an easier way to restore serach back the way it was for individual users. Go to their preferences and check the box labelled "Enable Go-Search".    ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (message wall)  10:22, 29/05/2012
