Exactly. Those are open redirects, and they've been disabled. See this recent PMD as well: PerlMonks Shortcuts in Other ChatterBox Clients

    The issue I raised isn't about /?node=scheme://..., it's about the search box no longer functioning. These are two different things.

    The search box currently makes a request of the form /?node=..., but it doesn't need to. For example, it could make a POST request.

    Alternatively, it could continue to make the same request, but only accept doc://, mod://, id:// and other safe schemes.

      You should maybe explain the benefit of such a feature, if you want it to be (re)implemented.

      In 13 years here I've never used this.

      The resources of pmdevs are limited and the to-do list is long.

        Well, doc:// and cpan:// brings up the docs very easily. These are *very* useful things to have when answering questions. I use them all the time when answering questions.
