Forum search bar not working.

Posted by fishers64 on Feb 22 2015 - 02:49 AM

This error appeared today - no matter what I type into the search bar, I get zero results, every time, no matter what I type in.

I know that there is at least one "the" in the entire forum. I typed one today. It doesn't matter what I search for, though - I was looking for Bohrok Kal, of all things. 

 

Anyway, this is a severe error that really needs to be fixed. I use that thing pretty often, and not being able to use it is really annoying. 

 

EDIT: The problem seems to fix itself if I put double quotes around the search terms: "search term" as opposed to search term. Weird.

You can't search for things that are under three characters long. It's why OTC has the RPGs labeled "RPG:" instead of just something else. =P

It's pretty well known, I think, that IPB's search function is sub par. Evidently, IPB 4 has an overhaul.

Blade is right, too, which is why searching "visorak" and "the visorak" in Bionicle Discussion (without quotes) will produce the exact same search results, for instance.

 

It seems odd that nothing will work, though. That shouldn't be the case.

Yes, I know. But searching 'bohrok kal' gives the same problem. Blargh. 

 

I've never had this problem before, though. 



The search seems to be working fine for me.
