Has the search engine on here EVER worked?

Like Tree6Likes

Or am I just doing it all wrong?

I'm looking for threads on Twitter. I put the word "Twitter" in the search field and I'm just getting hits from threads on page 1. The same thing happens when I select the search posts option.

I'd do a search on how to use the search engine...

What's the trick?
I don't think it works for anyone. No trick.

But Google Advanced Search is great. I've found threads using it.
No MAS.

I don't have much issue with the search. I can usually find what I'm looking for.
The only time I have issues is if the title has a bunch of short words, or if I remember the title wrong, but then I search for a specific poster or a particular word.

That's just searching titles only.

It can be tricky. I have trouble finding some of my own old topics!

If you know it's in non-hair you can limit to searching just non-hair. If you're not already doing that, it may help.

Nothing came up with that link, Saria.
I had a bunch of results. It must not work when you click it.

Just go to Advanced Search and type in Twitter. Make sure to click that you don't want all open boards but rather just non-hair results.
You can specify further depending on which thread you want.

I've always been able to use it without a problem. I do specify one particular forum though.
It works for me unless I'm looking for a three letter word. I got 11+ pages of posts for twitter just with the regular search.

I'm not going to waste any more time on this. Thanks for the help.
Same for me, I haven't had any problems with the search here.

Interesting how it works for some people, not for others.

I've never had an issue. For those with issues, you're using the search in the blue bar, between New Posts & Quick Links, and not the search at the top of the page?

I typed Twitter in and got this...

I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Thanks, CC. I used both search boxes. Who knows, maybe a lot of the threads on page 1 have the word "Twitter" in them and that's why it looks like I'm not getting any hits, when in fact I am.
I usually use the advanced option, and it works pretty well for me.

In general, though, this site is just funked up for me lately. It's S-L-O-W and constantly crashes. It makes me not even want to come here much.
Ive always had that problem with the search bar too...

and less like this --------->
I get good results using the search function that is in the main menu bar, with the purple "search" button.

The search function that is built into the boards, which is located in the aqua bar between new posts and quick links, is fairly useless.
It's never worked for me. I use google if I want to find anything on here

I do "Advanced search" and specify, for instance, "non-hair discussion" and I get the results I'm looking for.

Same. However, if I'm feeling lazy I go to Google and type in a phrase I specifically remember being used. I get fewer results that way.
