    Using advanced search

    I was using the advanced search, title only for The Keeper of the Prophecies, it came up with 1 of 19 of 36. Only 19 search results were shown, not the full 36, what gives? Something hidden? There was no page 2 with more results.

    Heehee..strangely enough, if you click All Types, it returns 1 to 19 of 20. :-O

    Same thing if you just choose Posts, which is what you're looking for anyway..

    That's just bizarre. I'm lost on this one.

    If I had to guess, though, aren't there "hidden" forums for developers of FMs? Thought they had those here.. Maybe it's returning results from those, listing it as the 'total', but you can only see the 19 that are allowed? Just a guess.

    I thought of that, but still, there are too many listed. If that is true, the ones that are private/hidden, those shouldn't be allowed at all. That's just a tease man.

    I agree. Maybe PM MsLedd about it, or Al_B. One of them should know the answer.

    Nothing as sinister or interesting as "hidden" or "secret" posts, I'm afraid in this case! vbulletin does search in a two step process where it grabs all matches and then filters out duplicates and similar results that aren't valid. For this search type it was getting posts and threads and then narrowing the results down prior to display.

    It looks like there's a small bug in the vbulletin code where it records the number of valid results before it does the filtering, not afterwards. I've made a correction and it should now display the correct, lower, number of results.

    See? It's always the simplest of stuff. ;-)

    I knew Al_B would know.
