Ok, I did a search on "Wilfred Yeats," I was looking for a poem that I don't know the name of.

I also did a search using all small letters, no caps, and still turned up nothing. I did the search for Open #13. I know he has poetry in there because that's where I copied his name from.

But it comes up with nothing at all.
Is the search on the blink? or maybe because of the new forum?

I'll bet you entered his name in the "Search Terms" prompt, Rebecca, when you really wanted to enter it in the "Include only this Author" prompt. The former would only find "Wilfred Yeats" in the actual post, while the latter would find all post by that author.

I'm betting that, because I just found 49 entries ...

Ron I put the name in the "author" space.
I just did it again, and I now get 88 back, but yesterday, I'm tellin ya, it wouldn't turn up anything.  

A glitch maybe. ??

Ok, this is what I did. I put his name in the author space, excluded replies.

Search by Forum.

Chose Open #13 forum.

Search.

Results 0

When I searched by all forums, and didn't select a particular one, then I get the returns.  Why won't he show up when I want to find posts in Open #13 only?

When I searched "All Forums" I got these results, but none of them are from #13.

I've been having some problems with search in open 13, also... I was trying to show Toe's birthday poem to a friend Sunday afternoon... when I searched on suthern as author exclude replies, I got nothing... when I searched on terms in the title with suthern as author, the poem popped up.
