    make sure you are in the forum index when you search, otherwise the search function will just search the thread you are in

    for example, if I search "dump" from this thread, it will return nothing, but if i go to the forums index, it will return the taking a dump thread, as well as other things.
    I do not know what is going on.

    I read your post, scrolled up, clicked search, and did a search on "dump".

    Here are the results:

    Ok, I believe you.

    But believe me, I had quite a few results.

    I will ask webby.

    Re: Search Function

    Its multi-faceted, this issue.

    Search from home, all.
    Search from a thread, the thread.

    I also cut off some of the search indexing by date from home since this thing is 10 years old...but that is a different issue altogether.

    The 2.0 version should quadruple search speed and encompass all....when I get it released.

    Thanks for the notice and thought-invoking process for me.

    Re: Search Function

    There are three different ways to search, and they all do slightly different things.

    1. If you are in a thread, and you type something in the box above, and click the search button, it will just search in that thread. (note: if you are on the forum index page and do that, it will search all the threads)

    2. If you click 'search' on the navigation bar above (between 'Home' and 'My Bookmarks'), it takes you to a basic search page that searches all the threads. This is the same thing that happens if you use method #1 from the forum index page.

    3. If you click the magnifying glass next to the box above, it takes you to an advanced search page where you can get much more specific about what and where you are searching, and provides options on how you want to see the results.

    Is anyone having problems like me and a few others? I search for tailgates and like 3 threads come up. I have tried to search other stuff and the same thing happens.
    The search is REALLY screwed up right now.
    A search for "Minnesota Wild" fails to bring up the thread with the title of "Minnesota Wild".

    Do #3 with "Minnesota Wild" and tell me what you find.
