Yeah, it is completely busted. We’re going to fix this. In the mean time, if you just Google the game title or whatever and include the word “kongregate” it usually comes up. Super lame, I know.

Well, if that’s the case, I’m fine (thanks to google toolbar) but I was wondering about the search bar… sometimes it comes up with only some results, sometimes with none, and sometimes with completely unrelated searches!

Glad to hear it’ll be fixed, tho. :)

You can also use the Kongregate Google script made by Dazzer. :) It works. Too.

Thanks for pointing me here arcane. What I don’t understand is why, if this problem has existed this long, is the search available? Although it might provide some results depending on the search, it seems like the confusion caused would far outweigh any benefits at this time.

Seems like the more approriate thing would be to just remove the search bar, or at least put a notice under it ??

There is a notice, its the word “BETA” above “kongregate” :)

You have any idea how many sites use that excuse! Oh wait, that’s why you said that with a smile :)

Thanks again arcane
