Search Tool

Post by Cerridwen on February 13th 2012, 6:37 am

I know there is a Search Tool at the top of the Forum but its not working for me. I type in the name I'm wanting to check in a specific topic and its not coming up. I keep getting "Not Found" when I know the name is in the topic. Is there a different way to search a topic?

I have to be able to check Forum Accounts and make sure no one has multi accounts, reason behind the Search Tool being so important.

Thank you.

It is known that the search feature does not work very well. What are you entering to search for? It searches by titles.

In the Forum Department of the forum I have a topic called Account Approvals. When a user registers I need to search that topic for specific usernames to see if they have a previous account.

So type in Account Approvals and it should come up.
If you typing in a user name that is not yet taken n your forum then no nothing would come up for that.

The search feature is only going to find key words.

Here's what I'm getting. Hopefully this will explain better.

After typing that in and click Search I get:
No topics or posts met your search criteria

try searching all terms,
But unless the members name is in a title or mentioned in a post i doubt it will come up.

Once again the search will only find key words related to what you type in.

info added


Oops i meant try searching post, all terms if for the goggle,
But if it don't come up then it don't come up, Nothing you can really do.
to mention the user name in topic titles and post, and that should help?
