Does 'search this forum' work?

Message par JeremyNicoll » lun. 09 février 2009, 00:02

Whenever I fill in the 'search this forum' box with a word, then click on the Search button, the system comes back saying "No suitable matches were found".

Does this mean "no matches at all" - what's the significance of "suitable"?

I started off searching for the posts I'd made - looking for 'Jeremy' - and that didn't work. Then I looked for 'lance' , and I also tried 'string', and 'scotland'.

The reason I tried this was that "View my posts" finds nothing, but when I look at my user control panel it says I've made 2 posts. The link there to 'show my posts' also finds nothing. Is this normal?

strange...
the search function on the site works, mostly, fairly well.
you can use google to search the site (advanced search, or by writing site:www.delcamp.net after your search terms). in your case even a google search yields nothing!
gremlins?

Weird. Make sure you log in before you make your search: perhaps the things you’re looking for are in off-limits areas for unregistered members.

I just tried again. I am definitely logged in. I typed "Jeremy" in the search box (on the International forum page), without the quotes around it, but as there in mixed case, and the response was a message:

No posts were found because the word jeremy is not contained in any post.

Whoops, I got that wrong. My experiment was on the Search field on the page you get at:

viewforum.php?f=106

ie not the "International" forum, but the English subset of the International forum.
