Has anyone used the search function on the main forum page (https://forum.openoffice.org/) lately? I get an error of "Unauthorized access to internal API".

Likewise the EN forum search worked for me just now.

I agree that the search from the first page of the EN forum works. There is a search based on Google on the main forum page, the one I linked above, that isn't working for me. I think Hagar put it there. If I remember correctly, it doesn't have the limitation of only searching for words with four or more letters that is in place on the internal forum search.

Oh, sorry - I ass-u-me d wrongly :) Seems the custom search uses unexpected calls to Google's API - hopefully whoever has suitable access to the source for that page can update it.

For the record I had raised the issue on the mailing list. Will bump it after the change of server is done (should have been done some time ago)...

This now works. It is not "pretty", but works. IIRC the page was using an outdated Google API.
