The search feature on my wiki ( isn't working today. It will suggest pages in the search box while I'm typing, but when I actually do the search, it takes me to a completely blank page. Teknomage 23:19, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Search on your wiki works exactly as it's supposed to for me using Chrome. What browser are you using / do you have a pic? Also, if you weren't aware of last week's changes to search, read up on it here. — Mathmagician 23:36, May 3, 2012 (UTC)
I'm using Chrome. But it doesn't seem to work for me on IE, either. I read about those changes to search, but I don't see how they would affect me like this. Teknomage 00:37, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
Perhaps check your computer for bugs Sam Wang (talk) 10:53, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

It's working today. Maybe my computer had a 24 hour bug.

I'm having a similar problem on my wiki, but it doesn't seem to be lag on my end since I've asked a few people if they can use the search but they cannot. The only difference is that I don't have the suggested pages in the search box either. The search also works on other wikis. -- Indiewhite 15:02, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

I can't get anything on Indiewhite's wiki. Filing. --daNASCAT @fandom 15:49, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
It's not the same as what was happening on my wiki yesterday, when my searches just went to a completely blank white page. But I did try searching your wiki and there were no results on the results page. Teknomage 16:34, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
Ah, I misunderstood. Sorry to thread hijack for a different reason, I just thought we were experiencing similar issues. In the mean time, what should I expect to do about my search? Will it get fixed, or should I plan to rely on a table of contents only? Indiewhite 16:55, May 4, 2012 (UTC)
