    How does your search work?

    I have tried on several occasions to use the search and advanced search function to find posts related to my question and they always come up blank.

    I just tested a Single Content Type search for all posts created by Dorothy and the results were 5 items returned.

    What were your criteria for search parameters?

    I believe the app does a full text search everytime a user searches, doesn't it June? Or if you're only searching titles only, does it actually stick to just the titles??

    Come to think of it, it looks like you guys deleted my last post in here. Seems as though I gave out a little too much information about the backend of things... whops!

    The multiple-content is buggy, please use the single content search.

    We clean up the 'forum support' area regularly. Ideally, all threads in this sub-forum can help members to use this forum more effectively. Outdated threads waste members' time and even cause confusion, for example, if someone reports a bug, after the bug is fixed, we will remove the thread.

    I'm at home and just tested the search engine, and it is working. Perhaps the security settings on the servers at my place of employment are blocking it, because there I still get no search results. Thanks for the responses.

    You can try "Search Forum" at the top, it's Google custom search.
