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

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

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

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

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.
