Fix forum searching! RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Could one of the forum moderators please send a suggestion to the team responsible for the Forum Software to fix the searching functions to actually allow searching only within one forum. Every time I use the search box in the Live Mesh forum it searches all microsoft forums instead of limiting it to just the Live Mesh forum (regardless of the dropdown box option you pick). It makes searching worthless the way it is now.

    I've tried it using IE7 and Firefox 3 and the results are the same. You fill in a search term and select "Search Live Mesh Forum" and you end up on a search results page with this in the search box: "iphone site:social.microsoft.com/forums". So it's obviously broken.

    I looked for a place to send this suggestion directly to the forums team, but couldn't find one. Thanks!

  • Hi,

    There's actually a forum for reporting bugs with the forums (which is, admittedly, somewhat ironic): please post here.

    Thanks,

    Ben.
