Search not useful: Doesn't display topics or links!

When I use the search function on the forum, this is the result page I get:

You can guess that it is not very helpful not to get the topic title or even links that take you to one of the results.

Maybe this is just a glitch, but just to inform you that at the moment, the search function is not really a great help for me.

I'm getting the same; trying to find a post from sometime between December last year and February.  Impossible without the Subject line!

Well, that's just great!

I refined my search from memory for additional keywords, and I narrowed it down to 5 posts.

Now, how do I actually read the posts when there is no subject to click on???  I can only click on the forum name (which links to the forum), or the poster name, which links to the profile.

I am seeing the same as John. Looks correct. I tried WinXP Pro and Mac, both with FireFox 3.6.13

What is the URL for your search results? When I do that search I get:

P.S. the above is the result of SEARCH THIS FORUM.  If I use Search Forums, the result is similar, with this result URL:

The funny thing is, it worked after clicking on you link, but only then. Before that, I tried again, and until then, it still didn't work.

So the problem seems to be where the parameters are passed to the search result page, not the result page itself.

I believe the issue has been identified. Now to test a fix and get it deployed out to production. It will probably take a couple of days, especially that we're heading into the weekend.

Mine is Firefox 3.6.13 on Windows 2000.

Just tried it on IE6: same result - no subject lines or links to the actual posts.
