What is wrong with this forum search facility

  howard64 09:39 21 Jul 2009

Having just asked a question regarding Acronis I thought I would look to see other questions on this subject. Typing Acronis then Acronis True Image etc., brings up nothing found even though my actual question is showing on the current page. If a simple search like this is useless what is the point of the search panel?

You've got to choose to search "forums" then "help room" or where ever you'd like to search.

Problems have arisen with the Search facility since the Servers were up-dated? recently - lots of members have commented here in the helproom.

click here - I hope this is addressed soon or the forum will fade away.

It's working fine for me.I just entered acronis and got over 100 results.

Workaround, search in google, enter:
Acronis site:pcadvisor.co.uk/forums

this will give you 664 results

Hello all. I'm afraid to say that we're still wrestling with our broken search function. It's partially fixed, and should work perfectly for some people, but it simply won't work for others. Rest assured that we are every bit as irritated by this as you all are, and it will be fixed just as soon as possible.
