Search engines not working all of a sudden?

If your search engines are not showing any results, download to the latest update and at the root you will find a file named “engines-fix.sql”. Import that file to your current installation’s database. It will reset the engines with new default values.

Or you can manually run this SQL query:

TRUNCATE `in_engines`;
INSERT INTO `in_engines` (`engine_id`, `engine_name`, `engine_cse_id`, `engine_is_image`, `engine_show_thumb`, `created_at`, `updated_at`) VALUES
(1, 'Web', '34eef687ce269487c', 0, 0, 1567321257, 1580814530),
(2, 'Images', '954a56c1e00db57aa', 1, 0, 1567321258, 1592295337),
(3, 'Videos', '530b5e7ca4f8045d4', 0, 1, 1567321259, 1580814558),
(4, 'News', 'b16521454a1884f6a', 0, 1, 1567321259, 1567321259),
(5, 'Torrents', '6ff7034d0894868ee', 0, 0, 1567321259, 1592295317),
(6, 'Subtitles', '93314d2add702dbab', 0, 0, 1567321259, 1567321259);

Or, alternatively, go to Dashboard > Engines

And change the Google Custom Search IDs of the engines to the following new values:

Web – 34eef687ce269487c
Images – 954a56c1e00db57aa
Videos – 530b5e7ca4f8045d4
News – b16521454a1884f6a
Torrents – 6ff7034d0894868ee
Subtitles – 93314d2add702dbab

Further disclaimer about the Search Engines

The search engine part of the script depends on a free third party API named, Google CSE. If a situation arrives when the API is discontinued, the search engines will stop working. As I have no control over third party APIs, I won’t be able to do anything to fix it. So if you are purchasing this solely for the search engines then make sure you understand this, thank you.
