SEARCH is not working
Apr 6th, 2013 at 1:49am
 
over the last few days i've been trying to search for information. the search function is NOT working. i can use the "google search plug-in" and it comes up with stuff, but that's something else entirely. at first i thought maybe i was just searching for things too obscure and i was out of luck, but i have since tried searching for "bedan", "bowl gouge" and "skew".......each time i get:
"Sorry, no matches were found
Go back to search here."

i'm using the latest firefox 19.0.2 and also tried with google chrome. no dice with either.

hope i posted this in the correct section.

Yes, this is the right place to post this question George.

I'll admit that the built-in search feature isn't the best, that's why we have the Google plugin. It does work so I'm not sure why you are having a problem. At least the Google plugin is working for you.

George,
Have you checked how far back you searching?  The default is one week and it will revert to that each time. When I search I look further back.

well, it's working for me again......firefox updated to 20.0 this morning and it's working again. seems i had an add-on that was conflicting, and i also have it installed on chrome, so i'm afraid it looks like it was operator error.

i noticed when i first started searching/posting here on this site, that the search defaulted to 1 week, so i always change it to "all posts", but that did mess with me in the beginning.

the google add-on is good, but sometimes i want to narrow down my search results to a specific part of the board, so that's when i use the search feature. it's not often i do that, so that's why it took so long for my issue to present itself...

so it was my gear that was the issue bang head . sorry to waste peoples time.

What plug-in was causing the problem? Might be handy to know for someone else having problems

You can PM me the info if you prefer.
