Search functionality isn't working properly?

I've used the same search functionality across a bunch of different sites, but for some reason I can't get it to work on my testing server.

  • I have the search folder in the templates area of the perch directory
  • I have the search.php in my blog folder
  • When I enter something into the search form it goes to the search results page but it keeps saying "Sorry, there are no results for xxxx" Even though I'm confident there are multiple results for the search query.

The only thing different about this set up is I'm using the mailchimp and the members app, but other than that nothing has changed. Does anyone know the best place to start figuring this out? It is probably something on my end but I'm currently at a loss.

Below is my extended Diagnostic Report

What do you get when you enable debug and search?

This is what I have from the debug

It looks like there is an issue between the search functionality and the Mailchimp app. Here is the main item in red in the debug and it shows up twice? I could be wrong but it kind of looks that way. I currently have mailchimp installed but I don't have a campaign active because I'm waiting the credentials from my client.

Have you visited the MailChimp App in admin so it can install?

Yes I have visited the app but I don't have a list in the system yet. I'm waiting on getting the API key but I need my clients credentials to get them.

I will wait to test search again until after I have implemented the list in Mail Chimp. It appears like that is the issue. Have a great day.
