What should happen[edit]

How to fix it[edit]

If search is disabled on purpose, the error message should be fixed to match. Jpatokal 22:48, 18 August 2007 (EDT)

Don't "fix" it. The external search is far more powerful and accurate than the internal one, and being able to search directly from Wikitravel using an external search is convenient. I would definitely prefer, as Jani suggests, that only the error message be changed. --Peter Talk 22:26, 29 August 2007 (EDT)
This message is displayed when the search daemon is down and helps alert us of a problem. The service was restarted when we noticed the problem last week and has been up since. Please let us know if you see the issue again. Thanks! -- Ibkevin 13:39, 30 August 2007 (EDT)
