Search works for forums.gardenweb,not for forums2.gardenweb

Firstly, thank you for fixing the search function so that it returns current results. There is a glitch with it, however, in that users can't access results returned from forums residing on forums2.gardenweb.com. This is because the search results return function is apparently assuming that all messages belong to forums.gardenweb.com. You can verify this by following these steps:

1) Go to the Seed Exchange Forum and select "Search Just the Seed Exchange Forum"

2 Search on balfourii +linda0210

3) The following result will be returned:

There was one match.

WANTED: Impatiens balfourii

I am looking for impatiens balfourii. Please take a look at my list - if anyone has any to trade and is interested, let me know! Thanks! Follow-Up Postings: RE: WANTED: Impatiens balfourii Posted by: sus Return

4) Click on the match, and an error will be displayed:

Whoops!

I couldn't find that message, but there are plenty more in the Seed Exchange Forum.

You also might want to look at the complete list of GardenWeb Forums.

Or, search the entire GardenWeb site for:

5) Click the Back button, and right-click the message's properties. The following will be displayed:

http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/exseed/msg0118570514094.html

6) Go to page six of the Seed Exchange Forum, find the message manually and right-click on properties:

http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/exseed/msg0118570514094.html?1

I have also reported this as a technical problem.

Thanks for your assistance,

Susan

Forgot to add that the ?# that is supposed to follow .html on messages that reside on forums2.gardenweb.com is also missing, i.e., the results returned:

http://forums.gardenweb.com/forums/load/exseed/msg0118570514094.html

and it should have been

http://forums2.gardenweb.com/forums/load/exseed/msg0118570514094.html?1

They are still working on it I think as some searches I did this morning show results that I couldn't get yesterday. Glad to see that they are moving in the right direction.
