Searching the forums
« on: August 20, 2013, 08:50:55 pm »
I can only get the forum search function to find anything by inserting a single term, phrases (even if I know they exist) or multiple keywords all draw blanks.

What am I doing wrong?

I attempted it, it works for me, not sure what you are doing, maybe you have filters set and don't know it.

All I'm doing is typing in the text box allotted to the search function. Just tried it again and it's working as expected. I'll pay more attention to when it fails next time around.

I think it may only search the sub forum you're in, though I could be totally wrong about this.

Pretty sure that's true. When you search, it only searches whatever specific area you're looking at. If you want to search everything, you need go to the main forum page...pretty sure.
