Search function?

Why is it that the search function doesn't bring up a thread that I KNOW exists (because I started it and can find it by clicking on my screen name)? I posted a trip report called "Russia river cruise - trip report", but when I type Russia river cruise in the search box, it doesn't bring it up (frustrating because I can't tell friends to search for it). Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the search function? Does it only search in the text of the message and not the title?

Here's the short answer - - any post that appears here since the l;ast week in June cannot be retrieved by the search function, due to a failure of the process called "indexing" which the Fodors staff need to fix.

See http://www.fodors.com/forums/pgMessa...2&tid=35026780

...and send a copy of this posting to [email protected] using the e-mail facility that exists for every post here.

Best wishes,

Rex

Also, rather than telling your friends to search for it - - just give then the URL:

I just typed this into Google, and your thread was the first hit:

"russia river cruise - trip report" site:fodors.com
