Hi. I have a search error with a new 3.1 installation. I don't know where to post about it and did not find any reference to it. Whenever I search for term(s) which relate to existing stuff, I get the live results fine while I type, but a search error when I click the search button or [Enter]:
"We’re sorry, but there seems to be an error…"

"Exception traceback
Exception Type IndexError
Exception Value list index out of range

Traceback (innermost last):
Module zope.pagetemplate.pagetemplate, line 117, in pt_render
Warning: Macro expansion failed
Warning: exceptions.IndexError: list index out of range
Module zope.tal.talinterpreter, line 271, in __call__

I don't get any error (thus the normal search result page) when I search for term(s) which gather 0 results.
I've rebuilt the index several times.

PS: I am new to !
PS: My setup is from the 3.1 ISO on Hyper-V, I have updated webmin and installed ntpdate manually.

Yup, you found the right place. Welcome to the Cynapse Community, willcropoint! :)

This was an unfortunate regression, there's a mistake in the Search Results template file done for i18n modifictions. This has been fixed in the SVN trunk ( and will be coming in upcoming bugfix release, early January (v3.1.1).

The closed issue tracking this is here:

Good to see Hyper-V usage as well. :)
You updated webmin? From the web interface (click button) or uninstall cyninwebmin + install webmin? Last release there were reported problems with button click upgrade of webmin.

ntpdate: hmm... interesting point, perhaps we should include this in default CD upstream for auto time synchronization.

Concerning webmin I wasted it through the form button then installed the manually downloaded updated version from the command line.

Thanks for your quick reply! Sorry for duplicating the issue, I looked briefly at the issue tracker without finding it.
