What's wrong with the search feature of this forum?

Postby bulgin » 3:17am, Mon 13 Apr, 2009

Okay, it's great to pound into users the need to search a forum before asking questions, but when I search on a term like:

Export

and nothing comes up, then there is obviously something wrong with this forum.

Just several topic entries down the page I see a big topic heading:


"Export users cannot download from admin"

yet when I search on the term "Export" no results are returned...

geeeezzzz......

Yes, the forum search feature doesn't work correctly since the recent phpBB upgrade. Forum admins have been informed, so I hope this will be fixed soon.

As a temporary workaround, I suggest forum users make use of Google to search the forum.
Just enter the following search command in Google's search field to restrict searching to the phplist site:

    site:phplist.com your search string
