Search This page isn’t working
« on: February 03, 2018, 02:53:58 PM »
The search function stopped working.
When you hit the search button you receive error 500, This page isn’t working

Any thoughts?

Thank you for the reply.
I did see that link you referenced before I posted this.

Problem is that the page is not there, and Load Balancing is off.

Best,
Sonny
