The search function is still broken. and i did explain the one that doesn't work. i can easily search for stuff posted in topics/threads with the "search this thread" tool
to get more precise go to the bar that has home forums classifieds user cp search and select search anything i can access from that little drop done wont work. so yes that's advanced search as well.
as for typos here's a fresh search i am going to copy the words in quotes and search it and post the results
results : http://www.airsoftcanada.com/search.php?do=process
this was done using the short and advanced. i got the same thing both times
"Please specify some words or valid user names to search on. There were no matches for those that you specified."
