I've just done a couple of KudoZ searches and noticed that the only resources for which answers came up were in "Glossaries" and "Wikiwords". So I tried a couple of common words to see if this was also the case with them and it was indeed! No answers appeared under "KudoZ open glossary" or "KudoZ archive", whilst there were many answers showing under "Glossaries" and "Wikiwords".

So I'm just wondering whether the search facility is working properly at the moment or whether there is something wrong with my PC. My settings seem fine under "Advanced options", so I'm a bit baffled by this.

Can someone from proz.com please advise? Many thanks.

Despite numerous complaints, nothing has been done to allow users to search for Greek terms in Kudoz. I believe other languages which use diacritic marks have the same problem.

Is there ever going to be a solution? The developers managed to sort out the problem for English users in a few hours whereas we've been waiting several months.
