If I understand correctly, the thread search tool should find text in the thread, yes?

In this page, the term 'VideoCall' exists. You can find it w/ CTL-F, or whatever your browser supports:

https://forum.xda-developers.com/sho...29172&page=199

The thread search tool, however, doesn't find it. Or 'video'.

Any ideas why????

Thanks

Thanks for checking.
Man, what could be happening here?? (see attached)
I'm pissing people off because I HAVE searched for answers, but the search isn't working, and I would have found my answers if it were.

Windows 7/64 Pro, 8GB RAM
Firefox Quantum v65.0.2

I confirm your issue - but only when using style XDA 2015. In style XDA 2013, which I always use, the search is working. @Wood Man Any suggestion who to ping?

XDA 2015 themes use Search Plus engine powered by algolia.com to do in-thread searches. Search plus doesn't exist with older themes.

I think what is indexed by the search engine on XDA is possibly what has been posted after January 2015. It would be needed to check for other threads but in the [APP][2.1+] ExDialer - Dialer & Contacts thread, the first post referenced in search plus base in this one from January 22nd 2015. If you use in-thread with search plus on 2015 theme, I think you will find everything after January 22nd 2015.

These are my findings and what I knew.

On my computers, 2013 is 200-300% faster to load pages.
