    I was trying to find an older post of mine and this happened:

    This says I have 1294 posts in this thread. search thread_1.png

    but the search only found 200 of 1294.
    search thread_2.png

    Then I tried this:
    search thread_3.png

    And got this:

    When using this method, it is automatically set to find the most recent.

    Click on the More tab and select Relevance and try again.

    But shouldn't it find all of them? And why does it find those not posted by me? And those in other forums?

    If I click on more and search for blushing posted by casportpony, both recent and relevance find 12 items.

    You have it set to only search for posts by you and to only search that specific thread. It should not find posts by other members nor should it find posts made in other threads let alone other forums.

    All I know is that I always have to switch it to Relevance to find what I am looking for.

    We're having some issues with the Threadloom search right now, and we've also had a few instances of the default search not properly representing the number of posts / results for some members.

    We'll keep looking into it, but if you notice anything else that might help identify the issue, let us know.

    This should be fixed now.
