    Problem searching in forum

    When I try searching for "custom browse problem", I get an empty page (no HTML at all) with the address http://forums.slimdevices.com/search.php

    If I try searching for "custom browse problem" in Advanced search, I get an empty page with the address http://forums.slimdevices.com/search.php?do=process

    If I try searching for "custom browse", then it works, both with Advanced search and the normal search.

    Does anybody have a clue why? Does this happen for everyone?

    Yes, this happens a lot. When all else fails, use Google's site search. Enter the search as:

    Code:
    site:forums.slimdevices.com custom browse problem
    http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=...browse+problem

    I've always suspected that the problem is if the search string contains common words, in this case "problem" is probably the one that causes the issue.

    However, I can't understand why anyone possibly would like to combine "problem" with "custom browse" in the same search string, feels strange ;-)

    Hehe. Well, I see you've found the thread in question, so I'm off to read it now.

    The problem was php running out of memory on searches with lots of results. I increased the max memory to be used. This should hopefully improve the search behaviour.
