    Tried to search (originally to find out why Wifi not working in GTA) and got this error:

    [​IMG]

    Never had this before. Tried on Orca, Firefox, Opera, Safari and even IE.
    The "Client" it refers to is most likely GBATemp and not the browser client?

    Anyone else getting this problem with searches?

    Tried a few keywords, all same result.

    Thank you Law.

    Interesting that the advance one does work - but then the advance one uses the internal search like the New Post button does.

    Wonder why the Search button uses Google instead?

    Weird, it was and still is working fine for me. [​IMG]
    Also, since the servers got upgraded would it be possible to bring back the regular search engine?

    Doesn't work for me. Everybody probably already knows, but you can always just go to google, and type in whatever you want to search for, then type "site:gbatemp.net" That's how I found this topic, and why I didn't make a new one.

    We should have an Advanced Search button around the website!

    Is it possible to add the Google search back? I hate this new one its not as good and doesn't give the best results.

    I know you could do that. But pressing the Search button on top of GBAtemp is faster and better. I wish it was like how it used to be.
