  • [Forum] Search not finding correct results?

    If I type in certain searches, I don't get the results I am looking for, even when I know they are there.
    For example, looking for "interview with a vampire" i type "vampire" without quotes and get 3 pages of results, same with "interview" but not the one I am looking for, which is a post titled "Ann Rice Collection" , which contains the word "vampire" 24 times.
    If i search Ann Rice, or Interview with a vampire, it comes right up though.

    How can I set the results to find what I am looking for? Its not filtering out 1 word searches, because i do get some results.
    I rebuilt search indexes but didnt help.

    I get the same non results with advanced searches as well. Its as if that post doesnt exist, when it does.
    This has happened with several searchs, this is just one example.

      Is the forum the post is in Indexed? (look in Forum Manager)

      If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

          Um, I really don't know the answer here. The search query did change for 4.x and I know there is a bug report regarding it because the results are not always accurate. I am guessing that this is what you are seeing.
