Can you better articulate exactly how you feel things aren't working? Prior to noticing Search wasn't working, did things seem to be okay with the B output?
How exactly do you know that Search isn't working? Is there a specific term that isn't displaying or what?
In the past I have never had a problem with the search functionality in output B - all searches resulted in at least some results. In the most recent published output for B, however, I only get "No Topics Found" no matter what word I search on. I have noticed the problem since adding the conditional build tags to the topics, but I can't determine why that would be causing the issue.
I did a great deal of investigation since my first post, and I finally figured out what the problem was. I compared output files in the whxdata folder to the output files from when the search functionality had previously worked. I discovered the problem in the whfts.xml file. The last line of the "chunkinfo url" lines included the following:
<chunkinfo url="whfwdata16.xml" first="vs" last="�"/>
When I replaced the � with the last character from the file that worked, "™" , and saved the file, the search functionality began working - I could search on any term again and not end up with "No Results Found".
Now I guess that � is hanging out somewhere in the topics I edited recently, so I'll have to do a search to get that fixed, but at least I know how to get the search to work in the short term!
I hope this helps someone out there who might be struggling with the same obscure issue.
