Question Issue with Search & Advanced Search?

I have just joined the site. I have tried several keyword searches of the site, and of specific boards, and each time their have been zero results. I even tried the search used in a previous post/reply (cyst+buttock) in which you indicate there were a number of results. When I entered this information and performed the search myself, it returned with zero results. I read the instructions and followed the information available. Is there a known issue with the search engine? Perhaps I am missing a step or a subtlety for making this feature work property? I wish to be able to sort through the area of the forum specifically regarding "back" problems. Since this is a wide and varied topic, I wish to narrow down the entries talking about sciatic, herniated disc, L4-L5, and MRI results, etc. Thank you for your assistance.

Re: Issue with Search & Advanced Search?

Hi,

Perhaps there may have been a temporary issue with the search function, but it's working fine for me.

I just typed back+sciatic into the advanced search and got 1,000 results.

Try your search again and see if you get any results.

Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

Re: Issue with Search & Advanced Search?

Tried again, no luck (Chrome browser). Tried also using Safari browser, and I got the same result of "no results." What browser are you using?

Re: Issue with Search & Advanced Search?

I'm not a computer person and wouldn't have the first clue how to change browsers if I wanted to

I do however know that I use Internet Explorer.

I again went into the advanced search, typed in back+sciatic into the advanced search box left everything else the was it is, clicked enter and still got 1,000 resultes.

Sorry, but I don't really know what else to tell you other than did you also try
a google search?
Back+sciatic+healthboards.com
Or Back+sciatic:site healthboards.com

Re: Issue with Search & Advanced Search?

Please go to advanced search and look in the lower left corner:

Search Options

and check to see what settings you have there.

For example, you might inadvertently be searching for results since your last visit, under "find posts from".

Check all of those settings to be sure they are what you want, then click "Save Search Preferences" at the bottom of the page.

Also be sure that you are not entering keywords in the username field.

Please also check your "Search in Board(s)" preference.

Then try your search again.

If you know how to take a screenshot and post it as an attachment to your post, it might help to see what your search page looks like before you click "search now".
