and for the last time...

when searching for topics on TBV it is easier, faster & more reliable to open google and type in the word you are searching for followed by the words Thoroughbred Village.

for example...

type in... The God Delusion thoroughbred Village and Google will present you with all threads pertaining to that topic..

the end..

Anyone else having troubles with the Sportsbet banner covering up the advanced search option?
If so, could you state your OS & browser, it might be helpful Confused
Mine's Win NT4 Firefox 3 & is operational even tho' it's partially covered.

As an aside, I actually have Win 8.1 but it's adapted to operate the same as W7 so why does the Active Users OS/Browser column have me as NT4?

for the 100th time use google and put the words 'thoroughbred village' after your search words...

so example...seraching for say David hayes, so type 'David Hayes thoroughbred village' into google search and it will find all topics relative to David hayes..

easy..

the mayor cares very little for the site generally, so improving the search engine is never going to happen

Will this ever be fixed, so it works like it does on other sites?

Quite annoying having to try 5 different combination of settings just to get some results.

I hate to say it but this is one thing where Fiddlesticks advice is the best advice.

Simply use google.

I doubt there is a thread for Great Choice as google did not find it.

REPEAT:

Search/Advanced Search/Search By Keyword/Select Forum (or leave on All Forums)
Search In always change from Message Body to TOPIC SUBJECT otherwise it will NOT work.
Never fails for me or others who adhere to the above advice.

When I search for Lloyd Williams the only thing that comes up is the thread that I bought up.

Apart from that, I can only suggest that like most men, you too are unable to follow instructions step by step LOL

Click Search........Advanced Search............Change Message Body to Topic Subject   MOST IMPORTANT then type in Keyword

If unsure as to which forum it'll be in, opt for All Forums immediately below Keyword box.

You'll have no trouble doing the above but remember Topic Subject not Message Body as the latter just times out.

Today i've twice sent searching for threads i posted in using keywords, these threads nor my posts would come up, but other posts with the word would.

This was the Zadon thread and the Authoritarian threads, i could find neither thread while searching for my posts, and had to find them manually.

Otherwise the search function seems to be working without issue.

500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

Simple search times out on 'topic'using the word japan, presently on the front page. Most know not to use this function so go to Advanced which has worked fine untill 3 weeks ago.

Advanced - All Forums - Search In - change to Topic Title - daylight (presently front page)  just worked ok.

Repeat using winx, americain, ripper, photo, system (front page)

500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.


Also in advanced search, member name e.g. Bonfield & anyone else you'd like to try

500 - Internal server error.
