Search not working for me

I don't know what is going on. I want to start a topic but I feel like there already is one, and when I perform a search, it just lists the latest comments on the forum regardless of topic or content. Am I doing something wrong? Whatever I type in the search field, it returns the same results.

    I noticed the same problem last night. I'll contact vanillaforum support and let them know.

    Same here. It's been going on for a few days now.

    I also get this a lot: "No results for ."

    In light of this, I would suggest going ahead and posting a new discussion. If I know for sure there was a previous topic and recollect it being a good one, I'll manually look for it.

    I've never found the search helpful as it always seems to pull from within topics. Thus, I always just go look for the old threads manually. :o). Here's hoping we can get it working properly...

    ^ Looking manually? I am way too lazy efficient for that. :)

    ^^I will create a new one

    I think this topic was brought up recently in another thread. Did you do a search first?

    Any update on this? The search seems 100% broken unless I'm doing it wrong. I keep wanting to start various threads, but I have a feeling there's already existing topics somewhere that I cannot locate and thus I refrain.

    The search feature is also broken for me. Every time I type a topic in, it shows irrelevant topics!

    This still seems to be broken for me...

    Note that you can use google to search content here. Just be sure to limit your search to the forum site by using this text in your search:

    Yea the search has been that way for me forever. I brought it up in that annual review of the site

    The 'Search' function is broken; I believe @Huw is taking it up with Vanilla.
