@  Wotsit : (01 July 2015 - 05:46 PM) We're now on Tier III (Advanced Development)
@  Wotsit : (01 July 2015 - 05:45 AM) Unfortunately we can't do anything until Tier II have looked at it. Once it's working on 4.0.8.1 then I'll try upgrading to 4.0.9.1.
@  nylyon : (30 June 2015 - 08:48 PM) I'm running 4.0.9.1 without issue. Looking forward to IBTheme restart and hopefully some porting of the skins to themes!

@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 04:04 PM) No, nor did I with starting from scratch - just updating I have problems with. Trouble is it's a different problem each time.
@  doctorsexy : (28 June 2015 - 01:51 PM) funny i havent had a problem with it , but i started from scratch
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 11:28 AM) Every upgrade I've done so far results in different things. Only one was partially my fault for not noticing that their .htaccess didn't have a preceding dot
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:39 AM) Wotsit and Sherri if you need a hand with anything let me know
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:38 AM) WOW glad I have not made that switch to 4.0 yet :(
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 02:15 AM) Here we go again - ticket submitted. It's telling me I'm using a 3rd party theme when it's theirs :(
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 05:44 AM) Database exported - anything from here on in won't appear on IBTheme
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 03:32 AM) Well the nav bar was caused by me missing a dot off of htaccess :( - OK off to try again though none of this recent stuff may come out

Help Topic: Searching Topics and Posts


The search feature is designed to allow you to quickly find topics and posts that contain the keywords you enter.

There are two types of search form available, simple search and advanced search. You may switch between the two using the 'More Options' and 'Simple Mode' buttons.

Simple Mode

All you need to do here is enter in a keyword into the search box, and select a forum(s) to search in. (to select multiple forums, hold down the control key on a PC, or the Shift/Apple key on a Mac) choose a sorting order and search.

Advanced Mode

The advanced search screen, will give you a much greater range of options to choose from to refine your search. In addition to searching by keyword, you are able to search by a members username or a combination of both. You can also choose to refine your search by selecting a date range, and there are a number of sorting options available. There are also two ways of displaying the search results, can either show the post text in full or just show a link to the topic, can choose this using the radio buttons available.

If the administrator has enabled it, you may have a minimum amount of time to wait between searches, this is known as search flood control.

There are also search boxes available at the bottom of each forum, to allow you to carry out a quick search of all of the topics within that particular forum.
