    Forum search hasn't worked for me for a long time. Can't view old posts on my profile. Forum search link still broken and has to be changed manually.

    Usual error is: "Could not delete old search id sessions" "debug mode" and then a wall of nonsense.

    Hmmm. Delete your Canonfire! cookies, that may work if you've got a corrupt session cookie there, vestcoat.

    I was just able to search by both me and by you as author (after fixing the search URL), so the function is working.

    Posting this here instead of opening a second topic.

    Having a similar problem: Search function works, but only the first page of results displays. If I click on any of the pages beyond the first, I get:

    "No topics or posts met your search criteria"


    Am I having a case of "teh stupid", or this just, well, broken? Embarassed

    I spoke to Gary about this last week. Something happened back in 2013 and it still has not recovered. When searching you will find everything posted prior to April 2013, but nothing after that date.

    Anyway, that is what is am noticing.

    Sounds like the search engine index process stopped running, perhaps?

    Allan.
