If I go to advanced search, select all forums
Search for: rawconvert
By user: reyalp
it says "Your search query didn't return any matches. "

Yet these posts should match

the main search always has done that.  If you then go to the advanced and research it finds stuff

-edit Yes I wasn't as clear as I meant to be.  I completely agree the search is not the best.  LOL  The only way I find stuff is by advanced search is really what I meant to say.

Actually I find that the advanced search usually fails to find what I was looking for as well and find it quite problematic since google doesn't seem to fully index the site either. Yes, advanced search fails to find any matches for rawconvert written by reyalp (even now that there's one more).

I'll check this to see if I can improve the results.

Cheers

Could you test the search engine again with common subjects?

rawconvert works now.

I tried a few other things and they seemed ok, but it's a bit hard to be sure :)

Thanks :)

Regarding this issue; the robots file was mis-configured, resulting in no results being indexed by search engines...  :o

I guess google will be eating up a lot of chdk tomorrow...
