Description of Problem:
When searching the xamarin docs from http://iosapi.xamarin.com/, hitting "more options" redirects the search to an "alley.ws" domain and hangs. This makes searching on the docs site broken.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. open a fresh browser (clear cookies, caches, etc.)
2. navigate to iosapi.xamarin.com
3. use the search box in the upper right to search for, for example, "AudioUnitStatus"
4. watch the search update in real time (goodness!)
5. click on "More results..."
The browser will direct the search to "http://xamarin.alley.ws/search?kw=AudioUnitStatus", clearly not a xamarin domain. (http://alley.ws/ appears to be the personal homepage of one Austin Smith, whoever that is...). The search hangs.
Searching the documentation, as worked many times previously. :-)
How often does this happen?
Tried on several different browsers, cleared cookies, caches, and proxied my connection via VPN to make sure there wasn't any IP silliness from my ISP. Nope. Seems to be the actual code on your end, AFAIK.
Started working as expected whenever docs started using google custom search.
