Hi. The "Search" function is not working for me. It just returns "0 results for your search"

I can be in a topic and type the same topic's title into "Search" and it still returns 0 results....

Examples would help.

First, it helps if you choose "all content". Then, particularly for multiple words, to make sure the search didn't put a "+" between them or something.

https://thesandtrap.com/search/?q=ballybunion works.

https://thesandtrap.com/search/?&q=how to search&sortby=relevancy worked.

Then there are the buttons and options below:

Screen%20Shot%202017-12-29%20at%2010.07.

Note that the search index only includes words four letters long or longer.

https://thesandtrap.com/search/?&q=Titleist prov1x&sortby=newest gives different results than https://thesandtrap.com/search/?&q=Titleist pro v1x&sortby=newest (which really only searches for "titleist").

Ahhh, thanks, I guess I fell foul of the "less than 4 letters" stipulation.

I was trying to search for "fat shots" as I fatted a few last time I played. Any suggestions for better search phrases to help me find info/drills?

For stuff like that… I often just use Google:

https://www.google.com/search?q=fat+shots+site:thesandtrap.com

If you add "site:thesandtrap.com" it limits the search to here.

Yes that works. Could you build this into the site as some kind of custom Google search window ?

Maybe?

I just have a keyboard shortcut. I type "gs" and it expands to "site:thesandtrap.com" with a return at the end to submit the search.

The most annoying thing, honestly, about the site's search is that it loves to add the + sign between words. And the "fat shots" works on Google because the site throws out the word "fat" as it's only three letters long.

ah, I think I get it. I played around with searching Six Footer Challenge and No Sixes Challenge, and first they both came up with those dang plus signs. And when I searched for gps watch, it made no sense to me... I absolutely KNEW there would be tons of opinions on this site.

The plus signs are a recent thing. I actually think that's a bug and a not-expected behavior. "sixes+challenge" doesn't get any results, but "sixes challenge" gets several, of course.

It may be a plugin I have installed. I'm going to investigate that.

Yes, it appears to be a "Kitchen Sink" plugin I have activated right now. Search matters so I'll disable it temporarily, though I may re-activate it if the developer believes they've made some changes.

The developer of the plugin that seems to be causing problems is working on this.

The + signs shouldn't be a part of the search, which will greatly help the search stuff return better results.


Edit a little bit later: give it a try right now, @deekay, @gregsandiego, and @Golfer gal. Search should work better. Just make sure you don't search "This Topic." Search either "All Content" or "Topics" or something else relevant.

    • That’s a solid post Erik. 
    • Day 505 - May 16, 2021 Played 18 holes of irons-only (hit one driver on 15) with Sculley. Really focused on some short game shots, too.
    • Seriously. Also, we saw your post earlier, @David in FL, but it's as dumb the second time as it was the first time. In addition to what Dan said above, here is another article from the WHO: The effects of virus variants on COVID-19 vaccines The text in bold is quotes from that article: The COVID-19 vaccines that are currently in development or have been approved are expected to provide at least some protection against new virus variants because these vaccines elicit a broad immune response involving a range of antibodies and cells. Hmmmm. How can we prevent future new variants of the COVID-19 virus? Stopping the spread at the source remains key. Current measures to reduce transmission – including frequent hand washing, wearing a mask, physical distancing, good ventilation and avoiding crowded places or closed settings – continue to work against new variants by reducing the amount of viral transmission and therefore also reducing opportunities for the virus to mutate. Scaling up vaccine manufacturing and rolling out vaccines as quickly and widely as possible will also be critical ways of protecting people before they are exposed to the virus and the risk of new variants. Why is it important to get vaccinated even if there are new variants of the virus? Vaccines are a critical tool in the battle against COVID-19, and there are clear public health and lifesaving benefits to using the tools we already have. We must not put off getting vaccinated because of our concerns about new variants, and we must proceed with vaccination even if the vaccines may be somewhat less effective against some of the COVID-19 virus variants. So the scorecard: Vaccinated people: Are nearly 100% protected from the majority of strains/variants of COVID-19. Are "somewhat" protected against every variant of COVID-19. Have a very low chance of catching COVID and an even lower chance of passing it on to someone. Are helping to reduce the creation of new variants. Dave's peeps: Aren't protected at all against the majority of strains/variants of COVID-19. Aren't protected against any variant. Have only a reduced chance of catching COVID-19 because other people are being good members of society and getting vaccinated. Are not helping to reduce the creation of new variants. Your "we don't know how the vaccine handles new variants" is a bullshit excuse not to get vaccinated because every vaccine out there is more effective against every variant than not getting vaccinated at all. You're being selfish while conning yourself into thinking you're being "prudent." Nobody would rationally define "prudent" the way you're choosing to. Nobody who understands the mountains of data out there. What you are calling "prudent" is what most may call "selfish."
    • If I got held up by a group of guys playing this in front of me….someone’s going home with a broken toy. Lol.
    • DAVID, MY ARTICLE BEATS YOUR ARTICLE. The most serious vaccine side effects in history have all been caught within six weeks, said Dr. Paul Offit, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital in Philadelphia and a member of the FDA's Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee.   Covid-19 vaccine myths: These reasons for not getting a shot don't hold up. In fact, they'll set the US back Here are some of the most popular arguments for not getting vaccinated and why doctors want to set the record straight.
