    Are we using google search function now? Whatever, it seems to have disappeared...

    Oh, It's not just me. That's reassuring in a way.

    Ugh, I hate the google search results. It's very difficult to find whether a thread was posted or not. Some of them are buried. It was much easier when the search results where from the forum.

    Please note that this DOES NOT eliminate the default VB search, you may still access that thru the "Advanced Search" link located under the search box. It also does not replace the "Search this Forum" or "Search this Post" located within the associated pages.

    Is the advanced search down for part of the server maintenance? Any keyword I look for such as Brittney, search, anything comes back empty. UserId & Tag searches are working under the advanced but not keyword.

    I am going to be talking to Tricia in a few minutes and will bring this up. It is an easy fix but one that is time consuming and server intensive. I will cause issues on the forum for at least the weekend so I want to get started as soon as possible.

    New posts will show in the search, older posts do not.

    Same here. I am only getting a handful of results for terms that should bring up the maximum number of results.

    Good. Mostly, I wanted to be sure it wasn't something silly on my end. I've been playing with saved settings & a few times, I had it set for some obscure forum and title only, which would always return zero.

    I'll take a day off from searching for the dreaded broken url tags. No problem! Thanks, Dave.

    Ohhhh, Thank God! I have been so frustrated over the past few days. I wonder what changed? It used to be a wonderful feature of this forum.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.
