Why is it that when I do a site search I only get hits for posts on or after Sept. 9, 2006?

My search criteria very definitely defines the search to be specific to "Any Date".

Puzzled and frustrated,

John

I had a similar problem. I was searching for a thread for which I had an exact title, but the results said that no such post was found.

John,

Search results do max out at a certain number (I think 300?) so if you were searching for a common phrase that might be why. Also I am not sure how user permissions affect searches (for example if the posts I made in members F&F would display in a search performed by someone who didn't have access to that forum). To be honest I am not sure about a lot of the details of the search function of this forum and I've been confused by my own results or lack of results a couple of times in the past. I think it's a shortcoming of this software.

If no one is getting any results prior to Sept. 9th it might be related to the server issues? I will ask.

SAR

Sar,

I either got no results at all, or a very limited number in the low teens or single digits so that is not the problem. Try it for yourself. Pick a thread from say 6 weeks ago and do a search for a key word. See what you come up with.

I just tried it again with the same results. All search parameters are set to get maximum results. No Go.

Lots of love,

John

John, I know. I replied to the other thread about this in Ask the Board after this one.
*sigh* Time to get out the magic hammer and do some pounding.

Lots of pouting,

Much love,

Hi guys, well the problem is still here. I just did a search of the whole site for user lostcowboy, any date, I got 12 hits, I should have gotten between 200-300 hits. I looked at the source code for the search page.

Clifford,

Yup, that does appear to be and issue. I also just did another search and found the problem to be still there. A bit frustratig, but at least we have the site running now which is a far site better than a few weeks ago!

Again, big thanks to those who are working to keep this place going.

Lots of love,

John
