  • Search does not work!
    • This is by far the biggest problem, any idea what's wrong? Jpatokal 23:01, 7 Oct 2004 (EDT)

Ever since the MediaWiki upgrade search has been broken (for me at least).. Any search in the "Find" bar on the left or directly from the search page results in an empty search string:

Search results From Wikitravel For query ""
For more information about searching Wikitravel, see Searching Wikitravel.
Badly formed search query

Anybody else having this problem? -nick 15:15, 8 Oct 2004 (EDT)

Yep, it's a global problem. I think it's busted on all the Wikitravel sites. I'm trying to track it down right now. --Evan 17:00, 8 Oct 2004 (EDT)
Any progress? This is really a fairly nasty issue. Jpatokal 03:45, 12 Oct 2004 (EDT)
Yes, I believe it's fixed now. Thanks for your patience, everyone. Some judicious printf statements sprinkled throughout the code found the error and I was able to correct it pretty quickly. --Evan 15:42, 25 Oct 2004 (EDT)
