If you search in wikipedia for the phrase "wikipedia errors", the search churns
for quite some time, and finally returns the error message: "There was a problem
with your search. This is probably temporary; try again in a few moments, or you
can search Wikipedia through an external search service". This does not happen
with "Britannica errors", or just "wikipedia", but does appear to happen with
Search is temporarily overwhelmed. Please try again in a few minutes.
Did so. This is three times today with the same behavior: "britannica errors"
always quickly produces results. "wikipedia errors" always produces an error
page, sometimes fairly quickly. Does it actually WORKFORYOU?
Ok, I misunderstood you. You are putting the entire term "wikipedia errors"
(including the quotes) in the search box, is that correct?
Works fine here now.
1) Search is sometimes temporarily overloaded
2) Results are cached for several minutes.
