Forum Search feature not working

I am trying to use the search within the forum and whatever I enter, it tells me that my search "produced no results!". It displays a search results window which has ITRC forum box checked. If I check technical documents or manuals, I get results but nothing from the forum. Can some help?

Thanks.

Re: Forum Search feature not working

The Forums search has been the subject of complaints for years. Use google instead!

Like this:

+keyword +anotherkeyword +site:itrc.hp.com

Works like a charm.

Re: Forum Search feature not working

i saw another post about this in forum issues. HP folk are aware of the problem. In the interim, i've been using google, as in:

vg00 site:itrc.hp.com

which limits the search to the itrc site.

Re: Forum Search feature not working

I had the exact same thing the other day.

I searched in detail for "fsadm" with some options, and finally just made the search as general as just "fsadm" - and I got NO HITS!
(had to use google).

Amazingly bad search engine!

Hopefully, once again, the admins will see this, and maybe even try it themselves.
