Advanced...regular search seemed a bit broken and unpredictable

Ah, yes, that's right I remember seeing that setting now, and trying to set
it with no results...I'l try again with the latest nightly

What skin are you using? There have been changes to how items are accessed between 5.4 and 6.0

They're techno trousers, ex-NASA, fantastic for walkies!

Noah - take a look at how the Default skin uses these variables. Instead of
straight scalar's, a lot of them are objects now.

There was supposed to be a big kaboom.

[% itemobj.artwork_path %]

To fetch that path.
