    Hi,

    Is it me or the search on the forum is broke?

    I was trying to do a search for "wacom" in the forum EP121 forum under Asus and I got a no match found. For fun, I tried to search for "asus", "artrage" and even "ep121" and always no result... I do believe something is not quite right.

    Best,

    Goneau

    We have two search areas, unfortunately The forum search is down, but should be fixed in the upcoming site redesign. If you use the search box above the forum, that will work.

    Thanks, good to know. I used Google with the domain search function in the meantime and it worked great. Will stick to it for a while...

    Our programmers are actively working on the site search problems. We're hoping to have resolution within 2 weeks.

    Unfortunately, the search function that was fixed was for the TabletPCReview Home site. They hit some significant problems while reviewing the forum search. For the time being, it's best to continue using DRTigerlilly's Temporary TPCR Forum Search. Sorry guys....

    Hi Steve,

    Unfortunately no, there has been no progress and its not in the projects queue at this time. The native search in vBulletin 3 is weak to begin with and functions very poorly when there are hundreds of thousands of data points to search like on this site. The server load is pretty significant and can slow down the entire site. vBulletin 4 has a much better search feature, so I'm pushing for the upgrade in hopes of solving this and many other problems with the forum.

    Search still seems to be broken. I've been looking for a particular post, so I tried some keywords to see if I can locate it again, every search showed no matches even for the words screen, or screen protector, cases, etc.
