There is a simple text file, which on PC is called
SearchEngineStandardUrls.txt and found in the Documentation folder under
your Rev version and release folder that hasn't been updated since before
Eric died and is out of date. It's probably the cause of your problem. I had
suggested earlier and will suggest again that this file get updated and
moved to the plugins folder, so that it's not "different" every time you
launch a different version of rev. The Revolution Search Engine really is a
nice piece of work. It's just need to be brought current.

Aloha from Hawaii,
