    Default Search Feature Probs.

    Recently, I've tried to use the Search Feature several times. I was coming back with No Results. Since some of the terms were ones I had used in the past and had found what I was looking for, I was very surprised.

    Since things have changed with the forum, I even tried a search using only un Username - Amateur, which should show at least some results for post I had made. In ALL SEARCHES I get this result

    Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms.


    Clearly something is wrong here. Has anyone else tried to use the search? Have your searches been successful?

    The search is a vital element in the use of historical information in a forum.

    I don't usually use the search feature but I ran a couple of tests following your post - which worked fine including one with your username.

    Anyone else tried?

    I tried as well, and it worked for me.

    However, we are aware of an issue using search outside of the forum returning a security token missing error. We do have a fix for that issue that we expect to deploy shortly. The error is due to an attempt by vBulletin to thwart forum searches from outside of the forums. But, of course, we want to support that function in our own search feature on the GPWA website.

    I tried to use the search facility a day or two and also had to give up. I was searching for '32 red' and it kept saying I wasn't being specific enough. I tried to search only in the headlines to narrow things down but it still wouldn't give me any results. I'd assumed it was busted or something - I prolly should've reported it at the time.
