    Hello, the search functionality doesn't seem to be working, it returns a "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." message when I try various common terms. Anyone else having this issue?

    I just saw this in the Buy & Sell forum searching for "14-140" (with or without quotes). "Panasonic" worked, though.

    Yes when I search there are a lot of old entries but the words I searched for are not there. Help will not open .

    I agree that the search functionality is less than robust. I would suggest using Google via the "site:" keyword. Just format your search like " [search term]" and Google will provide results exclusively from this forum. I find this can cast TOO wide a net depending on the specificity of the search term, so I will often try to limit the results based on time if I'm looking for a particular post.
