Starting yesterday, my search function isn't working, not for diaries, not for comments. However, Users still seems to work. I get this error message: THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THAT REQUEST.

    I'm seeing the same thing yesterday (7/1) and today. No search results in "Diaries." Even Author search in Diaries fails, although searching for the user name under Users does seem to work.

    I'm seeing this too. I did several different searches, and every search of Diaries or Comments I tried gave me the "THERE WAS A PROBLEM ..." message, but searches for Users, Groups, and Tags all seem to be working normally.

    Yeah me too. I'm searching for "Abbreviated Pundit" either caps or not on an up to date Chromebook, chrome browser and this has worked for years. No more.

    Lost and Found is correct that the result is "problem with that search". Having a hard time posting here.

    Add me to the list. Even worse (and more importantly), the dedicated people who put the Top Comments diary together every night are having the same problems with the broken Search function.

    Oh, thank goodness! I'm not the only one! We really need a "report technical problem" button somewhere...

    Hello, and thanks for the alert.
    We should have a fix deployed soon (though I can't yet be specific about the timing). Apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime.
