Forum search not working?

Hi,

I have just tried to use the "Search forum" box in the website Non-technical thread list view. I entered the search terms for threads I could remember having seen fairly recently and clicked the Go button. This brings up a web page headed "Forum search", but containing no hits. I then re-entered the search terms and clicked the search button. Again the request came up with no hits. Thinking I might have been suffering from amnesia, I tried to track down the threads I was looking for by searching via Google, and eventually found them. They confirmed that the search terms that I used were correct.

The search terms that I was using were words that appear in the title and the author's name, rather than category tags. My understanding is that one can search for posts containing specified words.

So could I please make a plea? Either make sure any search or other dynamic information facilities published on the website actually work, or remove them altogether. Dynamic website content that don't work just doesn't give a good impression of the professionalism of the website's owner.

Regards,

EM
