[Bug] Advanced search does not return any results
I just created a thread for a topic that had been discussed previously so I decided to double check why I didn't find it first.
I tried an "Advanced search" with these parameters:
Search by Keyword: group e-mail
Search in titles and posts
Search for any word
Search in forums: Beta Testing
Odd enough it did not return any results when I have created a thread called ""The confirmation e-mail accepting group has html tags but is plain text":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/2979".
What did I miss?
p.s. If I search for just "e-mail" or "group" it does work???
Hum, I'm not able to reproduce, I get 1 result and that is the thread you link to.
Maybe someone else could give it a go and verify?
this search returns exacly this thread, but not the other onw, even when I search the whole forum. Perhaps that's because the group is in some quotes?:
The confirmation e-mail “accepting a group” has html tags but is plain text.
Hah, Gerolf is much smarter than me, I vote for his theory.
I tried and it only returned this topic. Indeed weird :-/
If it are the quotes, wouldn't it be bug? Cause then all quoted words will be ignored and the quoted words might be the more interesting ones to search for, right?

I cannot second that. I just removed the quotes for a test and the search still does not return the thread. (I've re-added the quotes).
Very odd.... If I search by just clicking on "advanced search" on the right side of this page and ONLY add "e-mail group" (without the quotation marks) I don't get any results at all!
It was just a guess :-)
or it seraches the multiple words only in text and not in the header. If you search for each word sepetrately, it finds the thread.
EDIT: this is also just a guess....
OK.... It is even stranger.... I repeated the process but now got one result... I can't figure out what I may have done different the first time when I didn't get any....
Also, the most important part is that even if you select "search for any word" it only returns the same ONE result. I would imagine that would return all the results for the "e-mail" search PLUS all results for the "group" search. Shouldn't it?
One more piece of the puzzle: I removed the quotation marks from the thread title and still isn't included on the search results.
Do we have any lag before the "page" gets indexed?
The page is indexed, as it is found when you search for only one of the words. I think it's more of the thing searching in the title vs. searching in the body.
It seams that searching multiple words in a title does only work, if the words appear in the same order with no other words in between.
I tested the following:
Search by Keyword: Advanced search
Search in titles
Search for any word
Search in forums: All
and it returned this page. If I search for:
Search by Keyword: Advanced does
it returns nothing...
