When I search XX185 this thread is the only one that comes up.
I can only presume that, because the thread you link to has XX185 in
the "deal" box in the op it's not picking up on it.........

EDIT when I type it in the normal search this thread comes up

hotukdeals.com/ite…ed/

but not yours. Like you say a glitch in the advanced search.......

It does work in the quick search :

hotukdeals.com/sea…ge=

but as you say, I get zero results in advanced search when searching for XX185 in 'Search Entire Posts' in voucher category.

Passed on now though as a problem, thanks.

The quick search option defaults to results in the 'Deals' Forum (even though it says 'All'), you just then need to click the relevant category from the right hand side under the 'Narrow by Forum' header. The quick search seems to have improved a lot, although the boolean +/- option seems to have gone, but the results for specific / straightforward searches seem to be quite accurate.

your quick search builds a different url which is weird

From your results, then click the 'Voucher' Category from the right hand column & you should get same results as my link

thanks - I always though the quick search searched all forums. No wonder I can never find what I'm looking for lol

mind you, I generally use advanced search 99% of the time as I like it in date order ;-)

surely you shouldnt have to do that, if all is clicked then all should show, no? oh i see it only searches deals, very strange surely the default should be all, then narrow down if wanted

Thanks sigma I get the same now..........

It's another thing on the report list and it's caught all of us out as well before we realised that it wasn't actually 'All' results displayed ;-)

This is what I thought too Sassie but the search says

"Search results in the Deals section of All categories"

Does the url depend on your browser?
