Wazeopedia search not working

Post by ojlaw
hello Wazeopedia developers, currently the search on the site is not working. 

for example typing a common word like "segment" in the search box and pressing enter only takes you to https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/Glossary#Segment not a listing of pages that may be useful with the term "segment"

typing a less common thing like "private installation" in the search box and pressing enter delivers this error-
An error has occurred while searching: We could not complete your search due to a temporary problem. Please try again later.

i tried to include some screen shots but the forum isn't letting me upload anything at the moment :cry:
 

it would be great if this could be fixed. thank you.

I wanted to provide a couple of additional updates. In trying to find the "Road names" article, you must search for the term exactly. Searched for "road," "name," or even "road name" will yield the error. This makes it difficult for editors, particularly new editors, to find editing standards. A screenshot of the error is below.

Also getting errors most of the time when I try to search. I get asked if I want to create the page.
