Using Search for Boss and suddenly getting blank results page

I have been using Search for BOSS for a while and just noticed that my results page is suddenly coming back blank. Any ideas? Thank you.

Yahoo has discontinued the BOSS V1 API. For the BOSS V2 api, they have moved to a paid subscription model.

We discontinued the BOSS Search extension because of this and have replaced it with the Bing Search extension.

However, we received word last week that Bing will also be moving to a paid subscription modal, and discontinuing the current API.

We are currently in the process of evaluating the search services to find a new free service to work with.

So am I to understand that this will no longer work? If not can I use the Bing extension? Other immediate ideas as I have a clear search box at the top of each of my web pages on this site and do not want to pull it off. Do I need to look at a pay service? Doesn't GOOgle offer a search service just for one site? THank you for the help. It is a bit disappointing however when a client needs to tell me when a function like this stops working - it would be nice if you would contact your clients that have purchased one of your extensions & letting them know when it no longer works.

I notice "Search for Bing" in my downloads but the extension that downloads is an .xadd file and will not install through extension manager....Thoughts? Thank you.

That would be the Search for Bing Expression Web Add in, not the Dreamweaver Extension.

at this point, I would recommend using the Google Toolkit instead:

dreamweaver-tools-for-google/

since the Bing service is slated to switch to a paid search service.
