Anyone else having trouble with Search?

I know for d-ed sure I have a long thread about holsters -- with pixs and all! And I know for d-ed sure I discussed the Nate^2Tactical holster at length.

I try to (advanced) search for message BY me, containing the word "holster" -- and the forum says no such messages!? So I try msgs by me and "Nate" -- and no such messages!? (I tried to search "plain' search for holster -- and still: no such messages!?)

Is search broken or am I?

And again -- this time limiting it to just the Micro (.380) area.

no such messages

I found it using google, but advanced search didn't find it.

Get results from certain sites or domains.
Examples: olympics site:nbc.com and olympics site:.gov

snowtao, holster site:kimbertalk.com

For years vBulletin has had a next to useless search feature, I've owned and run a forum running on vBulletin for over 10 years and find the search feature totally useless.

hey there, anything I can assist with?

for searching, sadly the search is a bit....fickle. this is part of vb's backend stuff. ill mention it regardless.

as for finding your posts and threads, there is an easier way.

go to your userCP/profile and go to your statistics area.

you can find all threads and posts by you ever posted.

you can also subscribe to your threads, and turn on notifications in your profile as well.

hope that helps. if you need anything else. let me know.

~Shane

Sometimes putting your search in quotes helps too.

Hey, 'Tao.
I had to try it out for myself. The simple search didn't give me what I wanted, so I tried the "advanced search."

In the username field, I typed in "snowtao" without quotes. In the keywords field, I typed "nate^2" without quotes. The search returned exactly the thread you were looking for.

Haha, I was just looking for that thread too, I did finally find it! Would have been a lot faster if I had started here. Thanks again for that information SnowTao, I got my micro back last week and put it my order at N8 holster yesterday! I'll follow up with you once it arrives.
