Question Search function not working?

I tried to search for a few things on different boards but the search function does not work? Did something happen to it? Is this permanent?

The forum search tool had to be de-indexed (essentially disabled) a long time ago, due to problems with server crashing. Yes, it's permanent, at least for the foreseeable future.

Many members have found our Google search tool to be helpful. Click "Search" on the toolbar above, then select "Advanced Search". Or .. click here. The Google search box is right there at the top. Make sure forum.lowcarber.org is selected to limit results to this forum only.

Hope this helps

The google search function doesn't work for me. I get an error from google. I took a screenshot of the error if you would like to see it.

I entered your search terms (apparently: "cocoa+unsweetened") .. hit submit and got back 1,547 results. Did you use the Gooogle search bar from our advanced search page?

Perhaps try using a different browser?

Okay. That's interesting. I'm using Mozilla Firefox currently. It might be an extension that is interfering. I tried using Google Chrome but I got the same error. Again it might be and extension in both browsers that is affecting the search.

I chose Advanced search from the Search drop down menu, which then presents me with a Google search input with two radio buttons for 'web' and 'forum.lowcarber.org'. That is the way I came across the described error.

Thanks for testing this for me. I'll do some more troubleshooting.

Strange. I use firefox, too, and I haven't gotten that error. A workaround is to just go to google in a different tab, and do your search with your keywords + site:forum.lowcarber.org .

Seems like search has been gone for a long time.

Very awkward.
Doesn't help.

I just joined up, full of enthusiasm, but this is disappointing news.

The Search / Advanced Search is a really fundamental tool for a large forum. I appreciate that a general Google-type search is possible across the forum, but it's not the same at all, and has far fewer possibilities.

Have you asked vBulletin for advice? I've administered a few vB boards in my time, and always found them to be extremely helpful for solving technical issues. There's no obvious reason why there should be server crashes, even with millions of posts. Maybe it was a temporary issue?

You can use the advanced search. It uses google to search the forum. Works better than the old one ever did.
