A couple of problems when searching the forums. Sometimes when I search it will tell me there are no results for that term ("low fat", "dog", "raw", "pancreatitis".) If I hit the search button a second time it will sometimes bring me back results, without my having altered the search term.

 

I understand some forums will not allow you to search terms with fewer than 4 letters, what I don't understand is why it sometimes works when you try the same thing again.  'Flood control' makes this a bit slower to do.

Also, when you're searching your own content, and it says 'search limited from August 2013"- is there any way to search further back than that?

 

I'm searching 'collar' in the general forums and I get only two results, that cannot be right.

 

I'm not nit-picking, I understand these things happen with electronic searches, it's not a huge deal. I have however seen lots of cases where people kept quiet about a glitch because it wasn't a big deal, when someone would have benefited from knowing about that glitch. So just in case I always like to inform forum ppl of these things.

Yeah, I've noticed this too. Sometimes results just don't show up. When I search collar in the general forum I get over 200 results, for the record.

I'm now getting 317, both times as far as I can tell I did the same things while searching.
