I have tried to search a few times today and it just comes up with a blank page.
I am using an android tablet, chrome browser, mobile site.

No, mine's not working, and wasn't yesterday. Using iPhone

I'm using android, chrome, mobile site and have just used search. It was fine.

I get this when I try to search I'm on iPhone using safari

I've just come into 'Site Stuff' to see if this was a problem or just for me on my android phone. It's been like this since yesterday.

If you do advance search it seems to work but normal search doesn't. Thought I was just searching for really obscure things to start with!

The search facility is completely rhubarb if you want my technical opinion!
What does work is to just search whatever it is your after in a search engine and include mumsnet in the title.

I.e. Google 'How to make a chicken last a week mumsnet'
No idea if it works if you're digging on a specific member though!

Whenever I've tried to search on MN the results are all over the shop, not in any order. Advanced search is a PITA on an iPad. Too many topics.

Evening all. Sorry about this. We'll ask Tech to have a look and see if they can fix this. Thanks for all the info on browsers, devices etc. That's always helpful. In the meantime, if anyone else is having the same problem, please do post here, again letting us know what device and browser you're using, as well as whether you're on the regular site, mobile or app. Thanks for bearing with.

It still doesn't work on my android phone but it did work on my Kindle Fire tablet last night if that's any help to tech.

I just get adverts today.

I know I can Google stuff with mumsnet in the search, but it used to work.

It doesn't work for me on an android phone using the website. It didn't work last week either.

Ohdearducks Sun 29-Jan-17 09:58:18

Still not working for me either

RedStripeIassie Sun 29-Jan-17 10:53:48

Still not working for me either. Just comes up with a load of adverts.

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Mon 30-Jan-17 20:22:45

It's not working for me either unless I advance search.

Hi all,

Really sorry about this - we'll certainly do our best to get an update.

Are you still having problems with the search bar today?

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Tue 31-Jan-17 11:47:05

Hi Lorna Yes I'm still having problems. Using the browser on an andriod device with latest update installed.

Soubriquet Tue 31-Jan-17 11:49:41

I thought it was just mine!

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 31-Jan-17 11:53:28

Thanks! We will pass this over to tech now.

We'll update you once we know more!

Again, really sorry for the inconvenience.

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 31-Jan-17 12:05:27

Well, that didn't take too long...

Tech has been working on a fix and it's due to be released soon! grin

Ohdearducks Tue 31-Jan-17 12:50:34

Thought I'd try again and this came up, not working but it did make me smile grin

Mooey89 Tue 31-Jan-17 12:52:14

BernardsarenotalwaysSaints Tue 31-Jan-17 12:54:46

DearMrDilkington Tue 31-Jan-17 12:59:22

Mine hasn't worked for around a week.

Using Google chrome on a htc phone.

LornaMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 31-Jan-17 13:50:51

Thanks for the update, all! Tech will be releasing a fix soon, do hang in there!
