Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

I use the search function quite a bit. I believe the search function is giving SOME of the possible matches but not even close to all. I believe there is a limit of 200 matches or at least there used to be.
Last night I was doing a google search on instrument bulb sockets for a Chevelle. Amongst many other results were a group from Team Chevelle. I read them all but focused on one in particular from 2012 titled "Dash Bulb Light Sockets" from 3/25/12. When i went back into the TC website and did a search in the electrical forum ( which was the forum it was posted in) it did not offer that thread. As a matter of fact the oldest thread was from 2012 but several months shy of the thread I was seeking.
Today I tried a search in the Interiors forum for some bulb numbers. The results were very limited and did not give a lot of the possible results. I know this because I had posted in several threads that had the info I was seeking.
Don't think the malfunction is date restricted as I have had recent results that went back to the year 2000.
What's the deal?

Re: Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

I did a Google search for "Dash Bulb Light Sockets" from 3/25/12 and found nothing.
Checked the archives and the dumpster and found nothing.
Can you post the Google search result you found and I'll see if I can backtrack it?

Re: Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

Here is the thread I am referring to. The google search I did was titled " Instrument Bulb Sockets Chevelle". But gave me several TC results.

https://www.chevelles.com/forums/27-...b-sockets.html

Just tried searching again after I posted the link. With the exact title of the thread and it did not show the above thread.

Re: Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

Google went bankrupt and is being liquidated, all searches are rerouted to Macadamia nuts growers....

Re: Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

The thread is actually titled " Dash Light Bulb Sockets" and not dash bulb light sockets as I stated above. But it doesn't matter as swapping those two words still does not reveal the thread in a search of the TC electrical forum.
As I said it was not just this one thread. Had similar issue in Interior forums.

You have to carefully pry them out with a knife or else they come apart letting the bubs fall down inside.

Re: Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

Best way to search this site is to use google. The search function here has always been lackluster. Include the word Chevelle and you always come right back here.

Try to do a search on this site and you'll be searching through unrelated topics for days.

Re: Think Search Function Might Be Malfunctioning

Google has been bringing up a lot of unrelated stuff for sale lately also.

Looks like I get the Google custom search in classic style but not in full style.
