Search not workingg

I tried to search the word CRANK in titles only, for the last 2 weeks. Got 0 results, even though I just responded to a new thread with CRANK in the title.

this is the error code for a recent search I did:
Fatal error: Call to a member function allow_icons() on a non-object in /var/www/public_html/vb/legacy/thread.php on line 176

I used "velo Orange" as the search term, and tried to order it by date, descending. no worky.

Also, when the search was "working" I got a lot of false positives, most many years old even though I was sorting by most recent date.

Just reindexed the threads Friday. It's been working by title for me today.

It is now working by title but I still have some questions...

1. it is not allowing me to save search preferences (by date and in descending order). It will save by date but it defaults back to ascending order.
2. what is the reason for the 30 second search limit? Can that be lowered to 10 seconds?
3. will it ever be possible to search by forum? I found that to be the most useful feature.

thanks

Each time the software for BF has been updated the search function has gotten worse. It was nearly worthless after the last update and is now completely worthless. In some respects, I wonder if this isn't an intentional effort to drive more postings and memberships vis-a-vis making the archives unaccessible.

The search engine was a great resource in the past, i.e., in the Joe Gardner era.

The last couple times I used it, it seemed to work fine.

What browser are you using? (I know that shouldn't affect Search, but stranger things have happened.)

Edit: When I search from the Search Forum box above the thread list or a Show All Posts user page, it works fine. But when I search from the Advanced Search page, I get this:

Code:
Fatal error: Call to a member function allow_icons() on a non-object in /var/www/public_html/vb/legacy/thread.php on line 176
And you're right, this has been happening for some time.

Hard to believe the millions of postings collected in the BF servers over the last decade can no longer be called upon via even the most basic search.

Amazing and suspicious, at the same time.

Oh, you can do Searches. You just can't use Advanced Search.

Yep.

Is there any attempt being made to fix Advanced Search? That's the only type of search which was of use to me in the past.

Although I would hope it's of no relevance to searches, I use Firefox.

"correct" it works? or not?

What are you trying to do, increase your post count?
