    Umm....yeah....no.
    Getting nothing but "No Results Found". What's interesting, as well, is that on the no results page, the mouse registration is about 1/2" below the buttons. Wierd. It would seem that a proper and functioning search engine is a pretty important piece of this forum puzzle,no?

    Thanks

    What were you searching? I'd like to give it a try. Helps me rely the issue to the developer.

    In my case, it hardly matters. Type in any search term that we know appears on this site and there will be no results ("Wing," "BSFC," etc).

    Laptop, Windows 10, Firefox

    Same here, "no results" comes up with any search, single or multiple words.

    Yes, every search provides no results.
    Please fix this. Thanks

    Same here + the 'My Threads' tab is still non functional.

    'My replies' is still working.

    Just did a search for "flying wing" (in quotes). Got 8 hits, of which only 3 had "flying wing".

    Should be a lot more, I think. But at least it worked.

    Windows 7, Google Chrome, and DuckDuckGo here.

    Wing came up with pages of returns when I did "wings" and wings in the search box and made sure it was not just set to find titles. Is BSFC how people are posting that or is it written out? Can you give me one thread with it in it, so I can look at what may be happening?

    "BSFC" still produces zero returns for me--maybe this is because it is all caps? Does the search engine not play well with caps?
    -- The good news is that the search function, in general, seems to be working a LOT better. It screens well by username, by normal terms, etc. Thanks for that.

    I just tried it both lower case and all caps.

    All caps worked. I also see that there are options for "this thread only" and "this forum only", and it depends both on these and where you are when youstrt the search.

    Maybe someone who feels more motivated about it than I am at this moment could figure out the logic here?

    Yes, the search function seems to be back up and running including the "My Threads" tab, thanks much!
