Yep. Searching was borked awhile ago, but it seems OK now. But ya gotta remember guys... this New site design has and apparently is still having some glitches.

Give it time. Give it time.

Don't email or PM me concerning Winamp. Instead, either start a NEW TOPIC or post a REPLY in the appropriate thread in these forums. This will also benefit others who may have a similar question or problem. But before posting, please first Search the forums and read all FAQs and all Sticky threads.

For the search stuff, as a workaround try a Google search with the following Operators/filters as part of the search query

Music or Videos

artist/group or title here site:www.winamp.com/media/music-artist
-or-
artist/group or title here site:www.winamp.com/media/video-artist


Plug-ins
search keyword(s) here site:www.winamp.com/plugins/details -inurl:reviews -inurl:opinion

Skins
search keyword(s) here site:www.winamp.com/skins/details -inurl:reviews -inurl:opinion

Please do not PM me for tech support. Any request for tech support through PM will be ignored.

Hey JM...

Have you tried Google's new Searchmash yet?
You won't see the Google brand anywhere there, and it's really awesome...

Searchmash Current Features

Reviews...

And of course, there's the engine that I use now more than Google these days... Ask.com

No, I hadn't tried that before. Thanks

The search Operators mentioned in the previous post works there as well.

Anyways, as another alternative you can "manually" search Winamp.com via your browser's address bar...

Classic Skins
http://www.winamp.com/skins/search/?s=c&q=search keyword(s) here

Modern Skins
http://www.winamp.com/skins/search/?s=m&q=search keyword(s) here

Plugins
http://www.winamp.com/plugins/search/?q=search keyword(s) here

Music
http://www.winamp.com/media/music-search/?q=search keyword(s) here

Videos
http://www.winamp.com/media/video-search/?q=search keyword(s) here

When using more than one keyword, replace spaces with %20
