    Default Search Function

    The search function seems to be flaky lately. I have emptied the search index and I am rebuilding it. Searches will not function well until this process is finished. FYI.

    I was about to start a new thread, asking if anyone else was having problems searching for topics.

    Thanks for the heads up, and thanks for all the time and effort you put into this board, Jeff.

    I'm having a hard time lately finding posts about me.

    Index is rebuilt. Give it a shot.

    How do you search across all CS for posts from certain user with certain keyworld. I only know how to do this where the userid is tied to the thread starter not the individual post within the thread.

    Click the "Search Single Content Type" tab in Advanced Search. Click it even if you think it's already selected. The search fields should change. Make sure the username setting is "Find latest posts by user" rather than "Find threads started by user".
