Topic tags/keywords: question

Has anyone else notice that the ‘search function’ on the Lumberjocks site is not working? I keep getting a Google 404 error message. I first noticed it yesterday and I still get the same error message today.

Me too. Just go to google and type “Lumberjocks insert what you want to search for here”. I have been doing that and it works. Kind of annoying, but I am sure they’ll have it fixed in the next week or so.

Me too. However, the search function generally sucks, so I don’t really rely on it. Using Google, enter the following:

<keyword>site:lumberjocks.com (obviously removing the ’<keyword>‘)

This will permit you to search just lumberjocks for the term you are looking for.

Yes. There are about 5 Other Posts on this same topic right below yours. It’s been down for 6 Days now.

Cricket has commented on it 3 or 4 times. Basically “IT is working on it”. So …... We just wait I guess.

There are also other workarounds on a few of those Posts.

Knock on wood, it may be restored some time tomorrow. No promises yet, but it is looking good.

There are a lot of small gremlins still roaming.
Hopefully they will be captured soon.

Yeah, I’ve noticed it. Perhaps they’re upgrading the search function?

I’ve been have problems for several days now. Even when it worked I didn’t like the results. Is there any plans on making the search engine results better?

It is actually working. It may not be the best for what we need, but it’s what we have for now.
