Advanced Search not working

It looks like Advance Search doesn’t work at all at the moment. (?)

Yes, I’ve noticed this too. John has contacted Kim about it. We’re waiting to here back on this…

Yes, it does seem to be working oddly for sure. I get results, but only a very few. Not sure just what might be going on. A search on messages with no replies only brings up results of nine from this day only, no matter what I said I wanted to see.

Thank You,

I would like to post other issues I see with the search. One is the inability to save ones default search. Another, is what this section looks like to Firefox and what it looks like to Internet Explorer 9:

Firefox 4 Search:](

Internet Explorer 9 Search:](

Notice that in IE9, you can actually see the save option while in FF4, you can not. Since most Linux users are not using IE9, why the discrepancy between Web Browsers and the apparent favor of IE9 over FF4? This issue has been true for a very long time in this forum. This default situation does not seem right to me in a Linux forum.

Thank You,

Not seeing the issue here on Firefox 4.0 Gnome 3.0, I see the save button (Go)](

Since I always use KDE, one would have to assume this is a Firefox/KDE issue then, but the same problem existed with KDE/FF 3 and openSUSE 11.3. Lets see if anyone else sees the issue then. I have loaded numerous different computers and see the same issue with all of them and KDE. Being a creature of habit, it would have to be something I do every time on every different PC (like using KDE) to create such an issue.

Thank You,

Is there and option to tweak the GTK settings in KDE? I’m guessing it’s that.

since search has been extremely slow (unless logged in) for a couple of
years (or so) i’ve gotten in the habit of using google and their site
specific switch, like “advanced search not working” brings up this thread in a heartbeat…

unfortunately i’ve not figured out how to easily search with time
constraints…to do so i have to click on the results page’s “Advanced
Search” and then on “Date, usage rights, numeric range, and more” and
then spin the “Date: (how recent the page is)” from ‘anytime’ to “past
24 hours”, “past week” etc

there are other deficiencies compared to the forums advanced search,
like sometimes i know i answered the same question (different asker) a
day or so ago and it is not possible to search for my posts by my user
name, because Google respects the signature block symbol
(–[blank])…so, all i can find are those who reply using the forum web
software which doesn’t respect the sig block and quotes it in the reply…

Am seeing the button (although the theme makes it faint and easy to verlook)
