Advanced search


I would like to do keyword searches restricted to a particular username.
The advanced search menu seems to allow this type of search.
But the results have posts of many users rather than those of the specified poster only.
In fact the results are the same as though no poster names was specified at all.

Is this a bug, or am I doing it wrong?
Has anyone had any luck with the new search enging.


I am not having an issue with it. I just tried several searches and all returned as I expected. For instance it returned 33 results for your id with the term Trump.

In the box at the top of the search do you see the search with @username ?


I don’t see that and was typing into “posted by”.
But now, if I just type @username into the box, it populates “posted by” properly.
Thanks for the help.


No problem. It should auto populate the top box after you type in the posted by box, but some people have been having issues with the popups and autocomplete.
