    Search function not working

    I'm trying to search "module" in the "Gen I/II" section and it just doesn't work. When I click on "Search Now" it says "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms."

    I get some results if you expand the parameters. Try searching for "module" in all posts (not just titles).

    "Search Entire Posts" instead of "Search Titles Only", still no luck. Nothing!

    I get 3 results with what appears to be the same settings as shown in the original post using "Search Titles Only"

    Using Google Chrome on a desktop computer.

    Please, I really need help on that one. A forum without a search function is pretty sad!

    I don't have a clue why you are having this problem. However, as a workaround, google can search the overall forum, it just can't return findings limited to one sub forum or limited to titles. I find it to be a better way to search a forum than through the forum software.

    The way that you would search for module is entering the following text into the google search box:
    module site:driveviper.com

    Unfortunately, it is still pretty sad not being able to limit the findings only to Gen I/Gen II...

    The built in search function in vBulletin is lacking. But, I am able to find the results you're looking for with the following steps:

    1. Click Advanced Search in the top right
    2. Click Search Single Content Type
    3. Select "Search type:" -> Posts
    4. Enter "module" in keywords, with "Search entire posts"
    5. Highlight "Gen I/Gen II" in "Search in Forum(s)" under the Additional Options header
    6. Click "search now" at the bottom of the page
