Default Search not working?

Anyone else have issues with the search feature?

I tried the quick version and the advanced for both threads and posts on keywords "Carnival Magic inaugural" together and individually and got nothing!

I know for a fact there is a new thread titled Carnival magic so that right there shows the search is not functioning.

Whats up?

OK...I see....It's a Google thing. Should have known Google would be involved. Under the Interactive Features pulldown is the search via Google.

The search pulldown on the lower blue bar is the one that does not work.
I tired it again today with a keyword Conquest and got nothing.
Obviously that is not possible.

Perhaps the function is diabled on that pulldown.
May as well remove it.

I cannot get to search to work either. I have tried to search single forums (e.g., caribbean) and all forums; neither works.

As I don't want to peruse through hundreds of threads, is there some way to get the search function working?

thanks,

Marc

I tried to upload a pic to the communiity photo area ( so I can put it here and show what we are looking at ) but that seems to have an issue as well. " Failed to write file. Check disc quotas and permissions for the path: /var/www/html/forum/albumthumbs/2/04f4fb76fa7f0ef5e988e0396e23e950_2005.jpg"

Anywho, the search that you find under the "INTERACTIVE FEATURES" is the one that is Google driven and seems to work.

The word "SEARCH" with the plus sign is the one that does not work.

The IT people at corporate are working on this. The entire site will need to be re-indexed to get the VB search function back.

The Google Search, that can be found under Interactive Features, can be used in the interim.

I'm sorry for this problem. I know it is frustrating when a function is there and then does not work.

Take care,
Mike

I thought I was the only one for whom the search did not work and tried all kinds of contortions. I entered a term that was in the first line of the board, and Search did not find it. Then I went to singles meet and greet or something and went through every age group and no age group, and according to the result, there is not a single unattached person on the ship. At least I'm in (one) good company in the failing search, doris
