If you're misunderstanding how to use it, most of the rest of us are too!

One thing to do that at least gets you *some* results is instead of just clicking the normal "Search" function in the banner area, click on the "Advanced Search" link.

When you're at the "Advanced Search" page, type in your search phrase or word, and instead of using the default "Search Entire Posts" tell it to "Search Titles Only". You at least get *some* results that way.

But for the most part, agree with Captain, and mgamer's suggestion of using Google is normally what I do. Just follow your search term in Google with "site:aquariumadvice.com" (without the quotes) and it will just search within the website.

there is something wrong with the search function big time. used to, i could search a username and bring up any thread they had posted in, now i cant, not even using the advanced search.

Glad to know it's not just me... lol. It kinda works on IE, but not Firefox. I'd rather give up on having internet than use IE though.

Probably the coffee because for some reason I'll forget and go back .. search.. get nothing.. think it was me... try again.. then remember and start cursing, stomping, throwing things .. and move on.

Good call on using Google, thanks for the idea! Never occurred to me that a browser might effect it, but I'm using Firefox too.
