  • Cannot "search" for posted emails?

    I'm lost.

    I was trying to do a search on a posted email, and no such luck.

    Can someone give me an example of how to type in the email address?

    I am running 2.2.6

    What do you mean 'search for posted emails'?

      Example:

      If I use this Reply to post an email address, such as [email protected] , and then a month from now I try to find where I posted this email address in this particular topic, the Search Feature will not find it under a KEY WORD.

      Try finding this reply in the beta search. Maybe the Ver 3 works, but m version does not.

        Nope, the new Beta Search does not work either.

          I order for longer strings like this to be indexed and searchable, you need to increase the Maximum Word Length in the Search Options section of the Admin CP

            I already have the following in the CP:

            Enable Searches: Yes
            Floodcheck: 0
            Minimum Word Length: 2
            Maximum Word Length: 20
            Allow Wild Cards: Yes


            And still nothing.

              The example you cited above contains 24 characters:

              [email protected]

              Since you are only indexing up to 20 characters, this is not indexed. Note that you need to rebuild the search index after making any changes to word length.

                Thank you very much.

                It will take sometime to rebuild, but the light bulb has been lit.

                  Also if you want to search the database directly you can use this query:
                  Code:
                  SELECT postid FROM post WHERE pagetext LIKE "%email%";
                  Beware though that that query could take a long time to run on big forums.
