ok so I knew I made a post about Target or Ducktales this week but I didnt know where. So I tried searching for ducktales and nothing pop up but I knew we (the community) talked about it like crazy in a thread. I also knew that I said I would go to my Target and see if they have it so I searched Target and all that pop up was some talks about collection goal. nonsense.

my post with the very same word im searching http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Fo ... ost8157781

clearly, there's something wrong with the search engine has it's not searching correctly like it should

word: target

Well, I've also complained about this before. In fact you can find the topic 8 spots below this one, entitled "Search problems".

The search engine isn't bad...it's a disastrously, horrible, worthless, good for nothing poo poo! (Sorry... I just felt like J. Rolfe now) :)

Sorry folks, but that is a Zetaboards issue. Nothing the Staff can do about that. Obviously, make sure you select the radio buttom to search posts and not topic title, but I'm sure Cabanon and others know that. Frustrating I know...

Sadly there is not much you can do about this problem. If you do a generic search for N64 you'll see that today the newest result displayed is for November 8th, meaning anything posted between then and now won't show up.

The date isn't fixed at Nov 8th as it will update eventually, but when that is and how far it'll advance to is anyone's guess. To get around this problem and search for newer posts I simply add site:http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Forever/ to the end of my Google searches as that limits results to this site only.

Yep. Did some digging and apparently some Zetaboards moved to some new servers a couple weeks ago. This broke the search.

As with most Zetaboards issues... "They're working on it."

Best workaround for now is to go to Google and paste in

Code: Select all

site:http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Forever/
followed by your search term.
