The search function has been a little funny for me lately, and generally doesn't work (once in a while it does)

I cleared my cache/history, but that didn't fix it. Any other thoughts?

I've never found the built-in function to be useful. I do a Google search like:
site:dhammawheel.com search
site:dhammawheel.com search

Yeah that's usually better! Good point. But it did used to work on forum, now it just times out, its weird.

I'd be interested to know if that was still the case in 15 minutes time.

No issues here...

Greetings,

Very odd. Thanks bhante.

I'll ensure David sees your message, so he can make the relevant inquiries, if necessary.

In the meantime, there's some good workarounds, and you can also use the Google Saffron - Theravada Search Engine.

Personally, I think the built-in search function of this particular software is not very good, even when it is working. It's working for me, but slowly.

I find it much faster and more useful to do a google search along the lines of:
site:dhammawheel.com keywords
