Search function is a total joke

It's never worked. Any time I search for something, and I know my searches aren't too outlandish or broad, it just comes up with 'end of results'.

There is a massive wealth of things that I'd love to search for and bring up again, but if I ever hope to find them, I have to go through every single page and every single post.

Is there anything that the mods or administrators can do about this?

Hmmm, just used the search function (for "pamela", setting the max post days to 720) and got 50 results...

Are you making sure that you increase the number of days of "last post"??

I have to agree with Blue.  I've never been able to use the Search Engine properly

Oh, gosh, yeah... its doesn't work for me, either. I always thought that I might be using it wrongly but its pretty simple to use, isn't it?

Hmmm, maybe you can post in this thread what you would like to search for, and then I can either tell you why it's not working (some general words are filtered out, I believe, such as Elijah--for obvious reasons--or "the", "in", etc.) or I can look into it by testing the search myself
