    Default I can't seem to search The Lounge

    Hi,

    Now that The Lounge is back, I notice that you can't seem to search in it. If you search "all forums" it doesn't return any content from The Lounge, and if you go to The Lounge and use "Search this Forum" then it doesn't find anything

    It's not possible to search the lounge as we don't want it indexed in google. We're trying to find a way around it, although this wasn't possible on the old forum either.

    Dan, the internal search engine can search the lounge, without allowing google or any other external search engine access to the lounge.

    The search on the lounge was only disabled when google replaced the old search engine on the old forum

    Hi Brendan, I understand but the two seem to be linked on this software whereas they weren't on the old forum (pre-google search). I'll ask the guys at vbulletin though.

    On the old forum, you could find posts on The Lounge under the users profile ("show all posts by ....") or whatever it was. Now that list excludes Lounge posts.

    OK, the lounge should now be searchable.
