How can we, in good concience, tell new folk here to search for related threads when the function only goes back one month?

????????????????

???????????????????????????????

?????????????????????????????????????????????????

Is there some reason it is set this way? And why the flood control on it? Please set the search function to be able to go back all the way, and lose the flood control, please.

Can I get an AMEN from the congregation?!

The search function does go farther back than one month. You can only search for a time span of one month, as in from July 1 - August 1. The search function works just fine, it's just a little vague on the instruction side. You can't search for something Newer than 3 months and older than 1 month because the date range is greater than 1 month. If you leave the "older than" window blank the system doesn't understand the date range. Leave both windows blank to just search for keywords/username with no date limit. If you click on the drop down button on the "newer than" window where it say days, weeks, months and years you will see a blank space above days. Click on that and clear the "1" out of the other window and the system will search as far back as needed to get 200 results. That is provided there are 200 results to be found. There are still quite a few posts and threads that were lost during the software change though.

OMG. I think doing my taxes would be easier and less time consuming. Why don't they just default it to the earliest date? Or am I still misunderstanding?

*faints*

To add to what Matt said, I have tried the search function and several times when I have doen more than two attempts with no results...it tells me in no uncertain terms to "try back later." Huh?

I'm not sure why the date range defaults to 1 week but all you need to do is make sure both the newer than and older than areas are blank, type in what you are looking for or the username your looking for and click submit. You only need to use the date range section if you want to narrow down your search to a specific time frame.

For example if you are looking for a post about "kiblasts" that you know was posted around the February/March time frame you would type "kiblasts" in the keyword box and in the newer than box you would put 6 months and in the older than box you would put 5 months. The time frame is only one month. If you put newer than 6 months and older than 4 months it will spit out the specified date range is too wide phrase. I don't know why it's set up this way but the search function does work. I just think the default date range section is throwing a lot of people. For the majority of the new people though they don't need it, just do a blanket search of the entire forum for their topic.

yeah i agree they gotta do something with that search option i hate how you have to wait a few mins between searches thats pretty annoying i don't even see why they do that i mean people aren't going to search that much.. i can agree with making the search option only for members but honeslty when i'm on here i only see about 50 people on and i check the forums quite a bit i know the record thing is 500 and something but still, if they made the search thing unlimited and theres only 0 people on i think it could most definately handle that

guess they have to pay for extra bandwidth ???

weird ISP companies all over UK
all in sweden has no limit, unless u choose 100mbit connection, then you get a 300gb bandwidth limit, and every 100gb over cost 10 dollar :P

Gotta agree, though it might cost more in bandwidth the search function here is absolutely HORRIBLE. It's far easier to search this site using google than it is to search the forums using the built in search feature. That's not a good thing.

How is it so difficult? You type in what you are looking for into the key word window and make sure the date range is blank, it's not that hard. If you want to narrow it down you can select a specific forum section to search. This search function is actually better than many i've seen because it gives you the ability to narrow down your search even move by selecting a specific time frame the subject was posted.
