    searches for post number don't work?

    Probably just me being thick or something, but when I ask for a search to find my posts using the number (e.g. posts from yesterday - I have a terrible memory) nothing comes up.

    As an example, if I search for 426637 but it gives a nil return. If I then search for "bluetooth stack", the subject of that post it shows straight away. The number is correct.

    Any idea why that happens/happened?

    Did you set the Search Options to search the message number? When I do that I find the message with no problem.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by tony55 on 17-Nov-04 18:13. )</P>Hi Richard

    You need to change the search options to show "Message Number".
    Added: Also make sure the "Forum or catagory to search" is set to "All Forums"

    As an alternative you can use the "View post number" box that appears at the bottom of each of the forums.
