Here is a link to my site Poultry Ireland . Type a search query in the blog search widget and nothing returns ( on my end anyway!).

Hi Connor,

Have you tried republishing your site? We've have a slight issue with the blog search widget over the last week or so.

Regards,
Sean

Cool, no prob. Glad its working. I had to change some of the code in the search widget this week (hence the need to republish/update your site to see the fix take effect)

Hello Yoogle

I'm not sure why this would be happening. I will need to ask our engineers about this and get back to you. I'm sorry for the inconvenience. I will update you as soon as I can.

Hello Yoogle

We think it's because you have a dash in your domain name. Can you please changing your domain name to desktop.yolasite.com instead? Here are the steps to change your subdomain:

1. Click on the drop down arrow next to the yellow "Update my Site" button.
2. Click on "Publishing Settings".
3. A dialog box will open up. Click on "Edit Subdomain".
4. Type in your new domain name and click "Save".

Your site will then be published to your new domain.

Then, try the search function. Please get back to me if you have any difficulty with this.

Thank you Sanja, this solves the problem!

I would like to define the issue,
since it is not my only domain with a dash..
its probebly, the dash, followed by . yolasite.com

Becosue, you can see the following domain has numerous dashes but works perfectly:
