When I clicked the link, I got an error message which stated “No posts exist inside this topic for the selected time frame.” I then found the same thread which I had created, clicked it, and then the error message said “The requested topic does not exist.” ETA: I just opened the link in an incognito window and the thread appeared just fine.
The forum search has both a simple mode, and an “advanced” mode (with search options).
For a simple search, you just enter your search term in the search box (top right corner of the forum) and either press “Enter”, or click the magnifier icon.
For the "advanced search, you need to click the “gear / cog” icon next to the search, and you will be taken to a page with search options.
Which were you doing, as simple or an advanced search?
I did both. I also clicked directly on the link as well as right-clicking to use “Open link in new tab” (in Chrome) as is my usual preference for opening up links I find via keyword searches. Same result all four times.
With the “Advanced” search it’s possible to get that kind of message if the settings exclude all results.
I don’t know why or how it could occur with the simple search - maybe the forum software was having a bad day. Are you able to reproduce the problem now?
Yep. This time, I used the keywords “sampling”, “rate”, and “dragon” and performed a simple search. I got the error message when clicking directly and right-clicking, did not when I used “Open link in incognito window”.
I have not done so recently. Also, this is the second time I have posted this response because the first one had been “disapproved” due to it being a duplicate? I do not believe I responded twice, but maybe that’s also a symptom of this problem?
