Trying to do some research and it looks like any threads before 2018 are not coming up in search..

Same here Chris. My oldest post is in October 2018. I would sure be sad to see us lose our Knowledge Management base that we have worked so hard to build over these years.

I’m able to do some back door searching through Google using site:maxima.org “insert whatever I’m searching” but it’s still a pain since I can’t pinpoint specific subsections of the forums.

DanNY help.

Hi all,

Since I joined the IB team we have been told to use the Google option when searching, since it is undeniably more powerful. Apologies I can't be of more help with this situation! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Thanks,

Cheryl

I’m sorry but it’s not more powerful.. so many unrelated posts come up using the Google method. It makes finding what’s needed damn near impossible.

Please get in contact with someone from the team who can help and fix the search feature. The knowledge that this place holds is part of what makes it great and keeps it alive.

Evidently, I've never made a post or thread, before this one.

Fix your ****, IB.

Same I'd really like the search function to be fixed. Maxima.org is the "holy grail" of information on these cars. The result of this being broken could lead to having to recreate old posts for topics that have been covered and traditionally helpful!
