    Hey!

    I'm having some search issues: I posted in a few threads lately and wanted to check if there were any developments, so did an advanced search by user name (mine) and the latest result was from Aug. 1st.
    I know I have several posts after that.
    So I tried searching for words I remember using in my posts, like bandwidth f.ex. and again, only old posts came up. It's almost like the forum hasn't been indexed in the last 10 days or so.

    Any idea of what's happening?

    Ciao

    Strange, I still don't.

    It finds this thread and the ones from August 1st and back. Nothing in between.

    I'm on Mac OS 10.4.11, Safari 4.0.2

    Sorry, my results are same as David's. It pulls up 3 threads between the 1st and this thread...

    It doesn't matter what browser/os you are using, as search results are compiled on the web server. But being unable to duplicate the results, I'm not able to troubleshoot...

    How bizzarre!

    I just did the same search from my iPone and got the same result:
    this thread, the one from Aug 1st and older stuff, nothing in between.

    Thanks for checking, guys.

    Does anybody have any idea of what's going on?
    Is there a fool button I forgot to press?

    Suggestions?

    I posted several times in the last few days, still no hits after Aug 1st when advanced searching by user name, except this thread which does show.

    do you get same results if you click on your profile and use the 'find all posts by' link?

    Aha!

    That works much better :)

    Still missing the last couple of posts, but I get a lot more hits than through the advanced search.

    Thanks!
