Stack trace error while in VS Search

I am not familiar with VPHOT yet, I just setup my account and tried to get acquainted with some functions. While trying VS Search, I got this error showing:

VS Search Deactivated


VS Search has been deactivated for quite a while but we have not removed its link from the available images page. Actually, not sure how you got this specific error? We have some hope of reinstituting this tool someday?


PS: This deactivation is noted in the current VPhot Guide.
