Hey everybody — we had some problems with the Search page over the weekend, which should be resolved now.
We’re using Verity K2 as our search platform. VK2 stores its “collections” in a big tree of directories and files; my best guess is that some files or directories became corrupted or permissions got out of whack. So, we fixed the problem by dumping the existing collections and starting over. It’s not a great solution, in that I don’t know how to prevent this from happening again. However, we do now now how to fix it in a hurry, which is what we’ll do if there’s a next time. Thanks for your patience with this.
Also, a new search results interface is in the works — I know the current one is a bit crude…
