    Search facility not functional?

    I am using FF and have tried IE with the same results, on my WIN 7 - 32bit PC, and find that when I am attempting to do any type of search on the forum, I get the following error


    The following errors occurred with your search

    Is it just my PC?
    On other forums using VBUlleten as the OS, the search engine works as expected.

    Given that it occurs in both FF and IE, no - it'll be on the server (a record in the database actually).

    I'll go burrowing around in the database this evening when I've got some time to scratch around. I've got a pretty good idea as to what caused the problem - would I be correct in saying you don't use the search facility* often? (Or you've found it to be broken for about a year now).

    *Excluding What's New which actually uses a different script.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I have noted that the search facility was broken some time ago, I always managed to get around it by doing a search in google. I just thought that in time you would have picked it up and corrected it, so left it at that. Since I needed the facility again, I decided to report it this time round, simply because it was a mission, even using google because the thread was to new, and the bots had not picked up the thread info yet.

    OK Justloadit - give it a whirl and let me know if there's still a problem.
