You are right, it isn't working properly, it hasn't been working properly for quite some time, and it is very frustrating. The frustration is compounded by the fact that all the messages posted prior to the most recent upgrade are marked with the same date. Thus, even when a search does turn up results, the old are mixed with the new, and it isn't easy to tell them apart.

Until searching is fixed (and all the old posts are re-indexed, please??), here are two tips:

1. Don't use the "search for all terms" option - that seems to guarantee you won't get any results

2. Add an asterisk after each search term. e.g. search* feature*

These tips won't solve your problem, but they might help a little.

We're aware of it. Socheat has been looking into it too. Just have patience.
