Problems With Search Feature

I used to be able to use the iRV2 search feature with great success, but recently I have been having problems. When I try to search for a phrase (specifically "power cord reel") using Advanced Search, I get results showing only one word (usually, but not always the first word) of my phrase. It doesn't matter if I search entire posts or titles only, for threads or for individual posts, or whether I put "+" between the words or not, the results are the same. What am I doing wrong?

Ditto: The search function you are trying to use has never worked worth a hoot. It is a shame. The little Google one shown works very well.

Thanks for the replies. Aha, that does work a lot better than the old search button.

The old search used to work well years ago, and I liked its flexibility with the way you could search just certain forums, certain time periods or posts from certain members. I also liked the way you could display either threads or individual posts. But at least the new one works. Thanks again.

I operate almost exclusively from my iPhone and iPad. Sometimes you have to access the full site via Safari as the app does have some ( very little ) limitations .
