I was trying to use the in page search to find a post and... it doesn't work. It just does nothing for a long while, then throws me a we're currently offline for maintenance.

While I use an unsupported browser - Vivaldi 3.0.1874.23, another user reports the same issue on firefox on windows.

I wish I could give more information, but this is what I have. Jokes about SE search being more broken than usual aside, can we have this fixed please?

  • I can reproduce on Chrome, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. – Ollie Aug 8 '20 at 12:37
  • Confirmed on Firefox/Win 10 too, can't search on any site. "We are currently offline for maintenance" – Mark Kirby Aug 8 '20 at 12:38

    Conveying a message from Nick: "We are seeing some abnormal search traffic we're investigating and working to resolve any disruptions still present." – Catija Aug 8 '20 at 12:57

As tweeted by Nick Craver, this is now fixed:

Search has been re-enabled across the Stack Exchange network. Apologies for the interruption.
