Drupal Search Not Working - Fix

Editing or creating a Drupal site where the search form stopped working or never worked in the first place?


  • Enable 'Search' module in http://sitename.com/?q=admin/module
  • See ?q=admin/settings/search to see how many items are left to index.  If you see that the site says 0% indexed, 177 items to go or something along those lines, run cron.
    • Run 'cron.php' from your browser like http://www.sitename.com/cron.php
  • Check ?q=admin/settings/search again to see the status of search module.
That's it.

Something I never thought to do while making the site, so hopefully this post helps someone else out.

Category Sort Plugin For Wordpress

I was recently using a theme that had a secondary posts section and I wanted to organize the categories of posts independently of each other.

Thankfully, I stumbled across this plugin for Wordpress that is just an all-around great plugin:  Category Order and Taxonomy Terms Order.

After installation, it creates a quick little Ajax driven drag and drop category sorter under your posts menu.
