Search does not work

Discussion in 'Bugs, Glitches and Miscellaneous Forum Problems' started by jishaq, Oct 17, 2009.

  1. Hey guys,

    Newbie here, doing research on ECB and WSM and ABT and all that good stuff. I know there is tons of useful information in these forums, but unfortunately the forum search tool does not work at all for me so I have to post what are likely to be FAQs.

    Here is a formal bug report. Am I doing something stupid, or is search broken?

    Thanks!

    1) Go to Charcoal Smokers forum: http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/for...play.php?f=108

    2) Observe the following threads show up in the list:

    "UDS Build(s)..."

    3) Click "Search this Forum" on right side above msgs. Type in "UDS" (without double-quotes) in the search box, and hit GO button

    Actual: Search results screen shows up with "The following errors occured with your search: 1. Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."
    Expected: Search yields at least the three threads observed in Step 2), as well as many others.

    • Sort Results by "Relevancy in Descending Order";
    • Show Results as "Threads";
    • Search in Forum(s) : "Charcoal Smokers"; "Also search in child forums" is checked.

    Stop on by roll call and introduce yourself and your smokers/grills. This will give other members a chance to give you a warm greeting. It's all good my friend.

    Words have to be 4 letters long and that sometimes is a problem. Not sure exactly what the reason is.
