The search function no longer returns results when I tell it to search through my posts :ugh:

I enter a word, like Fluttershy, then I enter my name and search and it gives me this:

FWIW, it works for me when I'm searching for myself, but not when searching for Methuselah. Perhaps the "strange" characters in his display name (apostrophe and comma) create trouble.

Edit: I can search posts by the user Carina II GL '88, so it's not the apostrophe.

How do you get different skins like that?

But I can't search posts from Nisa, Heroine of Justice, so it's probably the comma.

Workaround: If you enter your name as Methuselah* (with a star at the end) you should be able to find yourself.

How do you get different skins like that?

Go to Profile -> Modify Profile -> Look and Layout -> Current Theme -> change.

Ah, that seems to remedy it. Thanks

The weird thing is I was able to search just fine when I was Derpy's Hubby, Methuselah. I think I was typing Methuselah then, but not with the star at the end

EDIT - No, maybe I didn't successfully search that whole time. I know I used some substandard means of searching a few times when it failed

Bump on the same topic -- the search is currently not working for me at all, and I asked Felix and it isn't working for him either. Whenever I try to search something, it doesn't load and gives me a 500 internal server error. I don't know if you guys were already aware of this, but I just wanted to ask about it.

It's doing that for me too, about nine times out of ten. Once in a while it does work, with no pattern to it that I can discern.

How to fix it?

I was gonna mention it's completely broken for me, and then I saw your posts :-X Yes, it's still broken.
