    Search function not searching properly...

    I'm trying to find a thread I KNOW I used certain words in, and it won't show any results for my own name as the poster, newer than eight years ago. What is wrong with the new software and why did it render the search feature even more useless than it was before ?

    Search is definitely messed up. Only getting a page of posts for any user and usually a mix of new and very old.

    Seemed to be having a problem with the search as well. Seems like I was only getting like brand new stuff since the update and stuff from 2006 and older. So bunches of stuff missing.

    Just had the same issue. Searched for a thread I posted in the 650B forum. Gap in the results from Nov 2010 to 3 weeks ago.

    I was getting the opposite, yielding only results from '06 and prior.

    We are re-indexing the search results and it isn't quite done yet.

    Part of the problem is that the results are no longer returned in chronological order, but by forum. We will try and fix this, too.

    Search results should be getting better, slowly.
