I'm trying to do a search, and it has not been working. Is there possibly a problem?

I just got it to work fine, but it has some known bugs!

One is that you can't click the thing in the profile that says "show all unarchived posts by member" (or something like that) if the member in question has made over 2000 posts. It explodes if you do that because it simply cannot handle more than 2000 posts.

This is an old, free, bit of forum software -- and is one reason we're revamping the website. It works well but we've simply outgrown it.

Was the site timing out when you were running a search? That has happened to me on occasion, but seems to work again when I check back later. Let us know if it continues causing you trouble.

As Caryn said, we are outgrowing our outdated forum software. We do have a beautiful new website and community forum in the works, though it is still in development. Thank you for your patience in the meantime!
