Search not working

I've been trying to search the forums using the standard, and "advanced" search, and am always getting "no results"
I've tried searching for terms that I know are there.

Tried these:
ST1032
Ariens
Tall Chute

Not sure if something is up. I'm logged in when doing this, so I'd imagine it should work.

Gave this a test and I was able to pull up results for those.
I went into Go Advanced, typed in the keyword, search by entire posts or titles only and hit search now.
What browser and device are you on?

Some searches work now, others still don't.
It's probably user error.
I'm using a Macbook Pro with Chrome.

Do you use any extra plugins with your Chrome browser? A adblocker for example?

So searching only searches for posts in 2018?


I tried searching for the word "auger" and the results go back to June 2018.
Searched titles only for "Ariens" and the results go back to June 2018 with 138 results.
Did an "advanced search" for Ariens (title only) and selected "find posts from 6 months ago and older" with ZERO results.

Someone please try the same searches and let me know what results you get...

I'm using Firefox with no add ons.

A wealth of information unavailable, except by browsing. Not Good

I do the same, it's just annoying when things don't work.
