Search function not working?
Dear BF,

The search function hasn't been working for me for a few days now, but I haven't seen any threads about it. Did I miss something?

It worked just fine yesterday or the day before. What are you clicking and what are you searching for?

Yep ... just did a quick search ... no problem.

I've been getting this in the search function for a few days also:

Oops! An error occurred: unknown local index 'ForumDelta' in search request

What are you clicking in order to search?

jlg1290 10-13-12 08:32 AM


That's what I've been getting, too.


I've tried both the general search bar on the main page and the advanced search. Neither has been working.

Go to the main General Cycling forum page. Don't look up at the top ... look a little further down and you'll see a Search Forum link. If you hover your mouse over that link, 3 options should appear. Select Advanced Search.

That seems to be working for me.

In other words, go here:

Then just above the blue bar with white writing which says Title/Thread Starter, Replies/Views, Last Post, etc. ... over on the right side ... you'll see Search Forum. Click it and select the Advanced Search link. Then enter your criteria.

I just entered the word 'travel' into the keywords and got a whole list of posts with that word.

For the other error ... report it here:

Thanks, Machka. The "Search Forum" field works fine, but the general search bar and the Advanced Search page still don't. I'll report it on the assistance form. Cheers.

For the record, another way to search the forums is with google
Code: whatever
where "whatever" is your search string.

I stil don't have a search function and have tried to notify BF and have posted and have received no response whatsoever from the powers that be.I think it's entirely irresponsible from BF's side.
