I have compared /usr/local/mailman/templates/en/TOC_htsearch.html with the
output the lists are putting on the Archives page. They match:

     To search this archive fill in the following form:
       <form method="post" action="%(mmsearchcgi)s">
       <font size="-1">
       Match: <select name="method">
         <option value="and">All
         <option value="or">Any
         <option value="boolean">Boolean
       Format: <select name="format">

They all appear... but the searching still fails.

I did notice this:

htdig Archives Access Failure
The requested list cannot be accessed. mngwedding:mngwedding.htsearch

If you want to make another attempt to access a list archive then go via
the list users information page.

If this problem persists then please e-mail the following information to
the mailman at lists.wingfoot.org:


That file does not exist anywhere on my hard drive (mngwedding.htsearch).
I think the problem is that the file itself is

*nod* That, at least, appears to have worked. Now to get it to look at the
right .conf files :)

Thanks again, Richard :)
