Does the search not work for anyone else? Kind of frustrating when it worked so well in the past. Maybe I'm missing something?

It works great as far as I can tell. Have you been using the advanced search keys? For good searches you need to use the + key at a minimum.

+keyword for required keywords

-keyword to exclude posts with a keyword.

Use quotes around a phrase to search for a phrase.

Use a * at the end of the word to match partial words.

Also, when you select advanced, you can narrow the search dates to limit the returns down further. Are you getting too many returns, or no returns for your query?

It has been working great for me. Since the upgrade last winter/spring, it is a real search now. Very easy. The old one use to cumbersome with the search from dates and such.

If you want not narrow down you search drastically, use quotes before and after the main subject of your search, like this

“Cool Cats”

Or

“ice fishing for cat fish” at the “Cool Cats” get together.

Good luck

I've tried everything and always get the "There are no results for your query. Please try a broader range of search criteria."

I've tried this on both Firefox and IE, anything else I can try?
