    Hello
    I have a problem with search. When i enter more than 1 word it's searching for each word.
    For example if i search blog poster the search results giving results for the word blog and for the word poster.
    I have tried blog&poster or blog+poster but not able to make a certain search.

    Is there a solution for this?

    There is a problem with our search feature, was hoping it would be fixed by now. Maybe bring this to HaRRo's attention?

    Apart from that, use Google Advanced Search, or pick out the key word in your search phrase and maybe do a title search. At least until we get it fixed.

    Just to add a new glitch for the search feature. It appears to be completely off-line. No matter what I search for, it sends me to an error page. :eek:

    Any ETA as to when it'll get sorted?

    From the error page it looks like a database problem.

    I hope it will be fixed soon.

    The "search" table is corrupt. The table needs to be repaired either from the command line, VBulletin Admin, or PHPMyAdmin.

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I will try and re-build the tables in vBulletin admin.

    Okay I just rebuilt the tables and the error is still happening. I will have my programmer take a look and fix it early tomorrow morning.

    Well Diamond Dave, I think it's been sorted as I've just done a bunch of different searches and they all worked. Thanks for getting it fixed. :D
