well, I love it here ( as you can tell ) but I have to admit , the search function is pretty much useless at this point.
Even if you manage to get something other than a blank page with no explanation of why, then it won't let you go to the next page of results anyway.
You are much better off using google. you can search for a complete text string like this:
"could not connect to database"+phpbb
that will return many many hits on google, almost all of them here at the phpbb.com board, however, if you did that in this search , it would probably give you a blank page.
Wow, is this a general issue, or just something specific to the forum? If general, then why have a search button to begin with?
