Issues with FMA's Search Function

Put on your special banana sunglasses to help us look for issues with the site! Report stuff to contact[at]freemusicarchive[dot]org. Photo via flickr commons.

Hi everyone, Cheyenne here.

Just a quick note to let you know that we are aware of a problem with the search function on our site. Unfortunately, we had an issue with our server earlier this week. Though *that* problem has been fixed, another has popped up in its wake - it doesn't seem to be indexing things that have been added since then. Things are being saved in our database, and are listed in the "Recently Added" results list, but since our site gets new tracks daily, it may take some scrolling before you find what you're looking for if it's a recent addition.

All recent additions are coming up when you use the "Site Search" function, so I recommend using that for now if you can't seem to find something. I'll update this entry when we get it fixed. 

I'm really sorry for the inconvenience or confusion this may have caused, and I want to thank artist Fleslit for alerting FMA to the issue. As always, if you see something weird (in a bad way), let us know! Our users are often using the site in ways we don't on a daily basis, and reporting issues is a great help to us.

There seems to be an issue with the Browse by Genre feature. Once you select a genre there are no returns

Thanks for letting us know @joeybombstyle - you can still search by genre on the general search page; just click the "Genre" tool on the left side and select which ones you want to find! We'll fix the genre pages soon.
