    There is a problem with the search function that I encounter from time to time. The problem is that if a character is attached to a name of a movie, you cannot find it later just by typing the name and that’s important because if you can’t find the topic, it’s as good as dead. My suggestion is that when people type a name of a movie in the topic title, the name not be attached to anything.

    Few examples:
    I typed a search for DRIVE in the movies section and found
    ***Official 'MULHOLLAND DRIVE' Review Thread
    and didn’t find
    *** Official "MULHOLLAND DRIVE" Discussion Thread Page

    Also the same problem with Ron’s official HTF reviews. I always have problem to find them.

    I found the Mulholland Drive discussion by searching with "mulholland discussion" and got a list that include the Official Mulholland Drive discussion thread. [​IMG]

    No, the problem is still there:
    I did another search with drive, movie section and search topic titles only of course. I get only 4 results:
    1) ***Official 'MULHOLLAND DRIVE' Review Thread
    2) Mulholland Drive in Austin..
    3) Question: How do I save Quicktime movie previews to hard drive?
    4) David Lynch on Leno @ Mulholland Drive

    Thanks, yes, now it works. I see that you have changed the title. “ to ‘
    Isn’t there a possibility to correct the search function? Because there are many other topics including Ron’s official reviews with “ and other special characters attached to the beginning and the end of the titles.

    The intrepid Mr. Clack is already on it, now that the culprit has been identified. Apparently, though, it's not something that's simple to fix, so please bear with us.

    Could you please inform Ron also if it’s appropriate? (To use ‘) I see new official HTF reviews with “ instead of ‘ and they are un-searchable with the topic title!
