Cos if I search on a posters name (I ain't telling you who cos they will know think I am stalking them), it brings up a number of posts from today BUT i can go directly to other threads where they have posted and see their posts.

It ain't a typo of the name.

Is MN indexed like google and therefore subject to delays between a post appearing and being searchable? I am sure I have seen some v v recent results on a search before.

search doesn't work for me if i put date parameters in. waaaaaaaaaah. 'tis really annoying.

Not even if you click the today/yesterday options?


Actually whilst we are on the point would it be possible to change the today/yesterday clicks to a small list of radio buttons with the options:

Last hour (maybe this is pushing it???)
Last 3 days
Last week
Last month
User specified (with the typable boxes..)

Seems to be working ok for me at the moment - is there any change that you've got some topics excluded from your search options?

AbbyMumsnet · 15/03/2008 23:34

I meant chance (it is late).

SlightlyMadSecretSoundWinner · 15/03/2008 23:35

No if I search for a certain poster, I can see one post from a given thread - even though they have posted about 4 times on teh same thread....

If I search for "Abbymumsnet" I don't see your last post "I meant chance (it is late)", but see the other comments on this thread...

TY Tech...the missing posts seem to have come out of hidin....

This has been fixed, we hope.

If any more instances of search not working as you'd expect do happen please start a new thread.
