search function is down again, I guess you admins already know that..

is anyone else having trouble with it?

Yeah, it's down again.  Not sure why, hoping to get it back.  Ugh.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

I'm not sure if there's an update to the search issue, but I do want to remind people of the alternative search method:


For an alternative search method, put "site:xixax.com" in a Google search. So if I wanted to find Xixax posts on Mates of State, my search would be "site:xixax.com mates of state"

The catch is that it can't search the member-only forums, because they're not available to the Google bots. Idle Chatter, for example.


For super old posts, sometimes it requires this:


another tip everyone:

you might in your travels come across a post from years ago that links to another even older post, you'll find that clicking it goes nowhere, follow this example to make the link work..

AIM:
to turn THIS  http://www.xixax.com/viewtopic.php?t=6176&start=45 (goes nowhere)
INTO THIS http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=6176.45 (goes somewhere awesome)


old style: http://www.xixax.com/viewtopic.php?t=6176&start=45
new style: http://xixax.com/index.php?topic=6176.45

instructions:
*remove www
*replace viewtopic.php? with index.php?
*replace t=6176 with topic=6176
*replace &start=45 with .45


any examples that come up and are different to this please post them here and we'll work em out. personally i'm afraid the site will crash from all the searching (did it just die for anyone else a few minutes ago?). so enjoy it while it lasts and please SEARCH WISELY.

I don't know about anyone else, but the search had been working for me for the past few weeks up until a few days ago.

I'm having big ass problems with the search, everytime I look for something it logs me off! I guess it's been doing this to other ppl too? I'm pretty sure you can't do the google search anymore because that virus fucked everything up. Smh, We can't catch a break ..

Christmas has come 10 months early this year, kids!  Since our normal search feature is indefinitely borked, we are now offering a Google search bar, located at the bottom of the main page, which will open up a new tab full of the search results you so crave.
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.

Guys, a little help, please. The other day I read this post here about movie podcasts. One of the users (can't remember who) even said he is part of one of the podcasts. Well, I can't remember neither the context nor the topic in which it was posted, and I'd love to listen to those. The search button didn't help that much, so I came to you, my fellow xixaxers... I will even let whoever helps me out watch me cream my pants.

Polka fixed the Google blank page bug, and our Google site search is reinstalled. You'll find it at the bottom of the main page, where it was before.

As stated in the other thread, the search function now works.

Please test it out and tell us if you encounter problems, or even slowness. Seems to be fast and functional so far.

And now that real Search is working like it's supposed to, I've removed the little Google search bar.

Remember that you can use either the full-fledged Search feature by selecting it on the top menu bar, or you use the quick Search that appears when the header is expanded (little arrow to the left of the marquee).
Now you're in the *spoiler* place.
