  • search problems

    i help troubleshoot problems on another board and a frequent problem seems to be occuring with the search functions, and ive encountered these myself. some simple search terms that brought up a slew of results before, suddenly doesn't work. i've played with the options and still nothing. any ideas?

    what do you mean by playing with all the options?
    have you by any chance changed the search minimum or maximum word length?

      i've set it to search through every forum, search through posts from any date and then sorting results by last posting date. those are the only options. i've tried this with posts i've made myself and was previously able to find through the search.

        Has Brooke perhaps emptied the search index and didn't reindex it?

            The only reason I ask is I remember a thread about searching a while back and I think she was one of the ones who made some changes to their badwords.php and she would have had to reindex for that to take effect...maybe she emptied but never reindexed.
