    Wiki Search Acting Strangely

    It's a little hard to explain, but whenever I try to search for something on the wiki, it'll bring up a duplicate page of the wiki where the page I clicked on is supposed to be. I haven't changed any settings, so I'm not sure why this is happening. The Wizard101 Central wiki is working fine for me. Any help would be appreciated!

    I have this problem too! I thought it was just my computer going crazy. Does the right half of the page cut off for you too?

    Fine

    Re: Wiki Search Acting Strangely

    I asked @Jester about it a little while ago, but he couldn't reproduce it on his computer, so I thought it was my own browser's issue. I didn't realize it was more widespread.

    I'll try some more searches to see if I can reproduce. I really hate it when I can't see the problem members are having so I know what to look for/at. It makes it difficult.

    It's still working for me in multiple browsers ><. What happens when you right-click the result link and say open in new tab?

    Re: Wiki Search Acting Strangely

    Oh good, I wasn't the only one who noticed. I have this issue in both Google Chrome and Avast Secure Browser. Logging out when on the page fixes it temporarily but this issue persists regardless of whether you're logged in or not.
    @Jester I tried your suggestion and it works... but only for that page. If you search again the same issue crops up regardless of browser.

    What addons or extensions are you using in the browsers? I could try installing them also. The avast one I might expect some issues with, but not plain vanilla Chrome.

    There has to be a common thing causing this for those it's happening to. To track it down I need to determine what that might be. Then I can start work on making it not happen depending on what the extension is doing.

    I run Chrome with non web related/restricting extensions and do not have the issue so I cannot troubleshoot. Same with Edge and FireFox.

    Aside from Avast stuff (online security, passwords and safeprice), Google Docs Offline and what I presume to be the default Chrome apps (Docs, Sheets and Slides) nothing really.

    LuckyDuck - Yes, it cuts off the right half of the page for me too.

    Jester - The right clicking and opening in a new tab has been working for me. Like Flash said, you need to do that for each individual link though.

    My current running extensions are Kapersky Anti-Virus and Grammarly Chrome.

    Aside from Google Docs Offline and the Chrome apps (Docs and Slides), I have the Pinterest Save Button extension. I tried turning them off, but it made no difference. Right clicking to open in new tab works for me also, as does searching from the Google homepage.
