Default search feature not working?

I noticed just now that the search feature on CAF is not working? I've used it many times before, but this morning, no matter what I search for, keywords or usernames, it tells me there are no matches. I am using Firefox.

Not working for me, either; I'm using Explorer.

aearch for key word or member name doesn't work. I tried my own member name, and it doesn't work.

Default Re: search feature not working?

I just tested the Advanced Search feature, checking for posts by my user name.

In Firefox, the most recent posts were from August 29th. This would be missing many posts as I post here pretty much daily.

When I used Internet Explorer and Google Chrome, the results were much more recent...within the past week. But still not quite up to date.

For people frustrated by this apparent problem, it is possible to use Google to search CAF.

Go to Google.com, type in your keywords, then before hitting the search button type in the the phrase
site:forums.catholic.com

This will cause Google to search CAF, and only CAF, for the keywords you mentioned.

Thanks Dale, I appreciate the google search tip! The searches appear to working again now though, I guess it was a temporary issue.
