Search function

Is it just me or is there an issue with the topic search function. Have tried many different entries that i know should show some hits in the results but nothing. For example, "Echo Solo", "Fly Logic", "Scott l2h". Any assistance is appreciated
Thank you

Just entered "Hardy" into the search box. The first result was a Amazon ad but everything following were forum related.

What kind of words were you searching? The search function on here has usually been pretty reliable, but a few other weird things have been happening in the last week.

I just switched the search box from google to vb search. Much better approach. Didn't realize this was possible.

Thanks for the replies to this guys. @josie Are you still having issues with the search function? Searching "fly logic" gave me "About 384 results (0.18 seconds)".

The search function has been kooky for me last 4-5 days. For instance, search just now of “Abel” resulted in total of 4 results. Most recent result was from 2013.

Before the internet-savants torch, yes....i have spelled correct. And yes....simple one word search with no boolean operators.

Same problem here. Just searched “Farlex” and got two results, both recent.

search issue

I just did a search on this "Sage 10150-4 Giii " it cam up with nada. so did a search for "10150", noting. A google search came up with spey pages posts on this rod. Not sure why you cant find this info by searching on spey pages??????? Did they delete all the archives?

To choose a word that is possibly even more relevant on this site “Meiser” I got 3 back? In the past a search for a given specific Meiser rod would give hundreds if not more results. On here it would possibly be a surprise if there where less than 3 hits per hour on “Meiser”. So yes, broken. We have been using the search function with quality results for years and years, and it is all very well to investigate other settings that might improve things, but there it is an entirely different situation to have what works fine stop working with no notice.

Yes, that's the one I'm using. Just searched "Speyco," and got a message of "no results."

Mine is not working well either. I am using an android. The search is either showing "no results" or really old stufff from around 2002 with no recent posts. Weird!

Hello there,

Was able to pull out a few results.

What browser and skin are you on?
