    I'm not sure where to post this, but it doesn't seem to be a problem with my computer since I tried several. I tried looking at new posts and posts I've subscribed to, but I'm getting this error.

    Searching has been disabled.

    Yes, unfortunately, it has unexpectedly been disabled. I had noticed and notified the site owner and it should be back within the hour. Thanks for reporting. :)

    I've got things turned back on now... and I think I've fixed the bug that keeps turning it off. Let me know if I'm wrong! ;)

    Were you doing a search when you got that Harry? If so, that doesn't mean it wasn't working but just that there's a bit of an overload on the server. Everything works fine for me. Are you still having problems?

    Please remember to include the URL when you post errors, hewee. (I see that you did in the first one, but not the most recent... you only seem to have posted the message asking to email me the URL. ;) )

    Unfortunately, 503b's that are generated by Search cannot be fixed at this time. The company that created the search engine for vBulletin that we use no longer supports it. The new version of vBulletin should be released soon, but I've seen nothing to indicate that the have included a search engine that can handle larger forums like ours. For now, we're stuck in a holding pattern for Advanced Search.
