Could something be done with it? Every time I try to find information based on a generic keywords, I get this.
For example:
artillery
cavalry
cavalry units
turret

It makes accessing vital information about game mechanics and modding very difficult.

On the keywords the system worked last time I tried but I'm not sure what that error is. On the author search I didn't know there was an issue. Are there any other problems we should look at?

* I just tried searching artillery and it worked fine for me. Where exactly are you having the issue - can you send me the url and let me know which browser you are using? Here are my search results from the store:
http://www.matrixgames.com/store/?k=artillery&m=&g=&p=&v=&t=&d=&a=3&pt=1&searchSubmit=Begin+Search

And from the forum:
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/searchpro.asp?phrase=artillery&author=&forumid=ALL&topicreply=both&message=body&timeframe=%3E&timefilter=0&language=single&top=300&criteria=AND&minRank=0&sortMethod=r&submitbutton=+OK+

* On search by Author I can see its not working. It gives various problems such as a pop up or an empty list when I know there is a valid name.

* I also see the "newest 50" problem. I imagine its the same bug as above.

We'll take a look but more info on the first bug would be appreciated as I cant repeat that.

Cheers

Iain

This is the worst search system I have ever come across and I hate using it. I enjoy Battlefront's search engine along with other forums. It should really be quite simple to search within the section you are looking for than to have to scroll throughout looking for your game

You can use the search field on the bottom of the page - it searches the subforum you are currently on. Not that you'll find anything taking in account that the search is broken.
