    What happened to this feature, now you can only search by author and date. I couldn't tell if this thread had been asked before because I can't search by subject or key words anymore.

    I, too, have been missing this function. I don't use it alot, but it's annoying when it isn't there when you need it.

    Yes, that's the way it was with me, I went to use it when I needed it and it was gone.

    How come when I search I get no results and the error message:

    Fatal error: Call to a member function on a non-object in /var/www/redhotpawn.com/board/showthread.php on line 353

    I think there was another thread about this issue?

    If I remember correctly, Russ said that they (the 'admins' thought the feature would have to be removed following a change on the site.

    However, it turned out this was not the case and that the feature would be re-introduced.

    I imagine this is somewhere on a long list

    Cheers

    There was indeed such a thread: I remember 'cos I wrote it.
    And if I didn't know it was me who started the thread , and roughly when, I'd never have been able to find it using the current search function:
    http://www.chessatwork.com/board/showthread.php?id=9061

    But more to the point: I got a recommended from somebody! Cheers whoever you are!

    I think google has indexed this whole site, so It should be possible to search all of the forum posts, I think. I just did it once and it worked

    Try this in the search form at google:

    site:www.redhotpawn.com your keyword

    or use this URL

    http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&q=+site:www.redhotpawn.com+your keyword

    Thanks,

    If true Russ, why not consider using Google's seach bar on the search page rather than (or alongside) your own custom one?

    As this site is "small and public" (to Google corperate minds anyway) it is free: and the google bar can be set to search this site only: thus effectively a forums search without doing it the RHP server

    see http://www.google.com/searchcode.html
    Towards the bottom where its "web search with site match"
