    Default forum search is broken

    searches for older threads only yield partial links. e.g. while searching for an old thread of mine using words: navarro RPC, it only yields 4 links, none of which is the thread I was looking for: https://forum.saxontheweb.net/showth...ne-mouthpieces

    I tried clicking my user name and selecting 'latest started threads' and it only shows 17 of my many threads between 2014 and 2017, again, not including the recent thread above which I started (nor many others of mine).

    something is really messed up in the forum database. when I see the administrator's answer to the last database error thread, calling is 'fixed', I don't have much hope for the future...

    It really depends what you look for and where

    If I look for Navarro RPC here ( search box in the middle)

    http://www.saxontheweb.net

    for Navarro RPC I get 148 hits

    https://forum.saxontheweb.net/gtsear...j1082275960j17

    If I add GUTO to the search words I get 10 hits including some threads of yours (the one you were looking for appears to be the first one in this list)

    https://forum.saxontheweb.net/gtsear...j6679723942j22

    it is pretty much the same problem reported by me in another thread.

    There is I look within my last started threads I find only a couple for sale recors but If I go to the search box at the top the center of this page page and search Milandro SALE I find 7,000 + hits (not all my ads but it helps me finding things)

    https://forum.saxontheweb.net/gtsear...j6679723942j22


    The search has been made difficult by someone attempting to do something but the capability of the search engine to find things in the database is still there but it has been removed from many other locations.

    It looks almost like this was done on purpose.

    Since they should have kept a log of the things they have done they should also be able to undo it.

    Search issue has a ticket in for it already. I'm hoping to get this put on the critical issues list soon

    So is anyone working on this? I would like to revive an old post, but if it appears unlikely the search function will be fixed, I'll post anew.

    leon, it pretty much depends what you are looking for.

    I seriously don’t have any problem in performing straight searches throughout the forum.

    It’s thing like search the previous posts in the profile that have been axed.

    I’ve just searched “ tuning fork” and I get 208 hits. going back many years.

    Not only, but I can edit the search once performed, which is a very nice function.

    It's being worked on, though we just had a long weekend, so a bit of delay in forward momentum. Ticket is still alive though

    Go with what milandro said for now

    I'm having this problem too. An example of a search that appears to be broken: searching "alto" in the sax necks/etc for sale subforum yields 9 results, only going back to August 28th.
