    Did you change the search function. While in a forum I click on "Search Forums" and get this screen which looks like a search Articles screen.

    Edit: anything you click just sends you to the home page...

    Interesting, I'm not getting that. I get the usual 'search' when I click Search Forums.

    The last thing I did was mark Articles as read, I've cleared my cookies and history but still get that same non functioning screen.

    I followed your steps and still, no problem with the search. Hopefully, someone else will soon be along to help out.

    The threadloom search doesn't work on some devices/browsers. This search should work on all devices:

    Yeah, it looked like the Threadloom search page hadn't loaded fully. What operating system and browser are you using @jthornton ?

    Odd thing is I've been using this PC since joining Backyard Chickens to view the forum each morning with no issues. I'm on a desktop PC running Linux Mint and using Firefox 59.0.2 (32-bit).
