Everytime I type in a search I get nothing returned. Does it work or not?

Probably not, until Google gets round to re-indexing everything in its new place.

Edit: unless it already has (see attachment - Google's number of kilobytes downloaded per day for *.iconbar.com). The regular search seems fine, I get a memory error when searching the forums.

Andrew: does it work if you log out? Are you using the search box on the left hand side, or the advanced search page? What keywords/options are you specifying?

The forum search (usually) works for me.

Just remember that words shorter than 4 letters won't work (MySQL doesn't index them), and some 'common' words won't work either (which is usually going to be one of the words you're after). And the author search is case sensitive, so make sure you enter the name properly.

And if you get memory errors, it means there are too many results, so try being more specific.

These problems may eventually get fixed at some point :)

[Edited by monkeyson2 at 19:16, 4/12/2006]

Just a word from the title or content of the threat (>4 letters sometimes). Using both the advanced and basic.

Can you give an example word (so I can test it here)?

What browser are you using?

Does it work when you're logged out?

It seems to work when logged out, in Fresco but not Netsurf.
