I'm using Search in selected forums and threads to find my images that Photobucket has hidden. It isn't returning everything it should. In the Post Your Food Photography thread, for example, it missed these:

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17636061

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17673139

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17686869

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17139613

https://photography-on-the.net …showthread.php?​p=17162359

and I know there are other IMG posts of mine in that forum and probably in that thread, besides the ones that Search did find.

More info that may help with diagnosis.

In Urban Life & Travel, a search using the forum name, my screen name, and [IMG] (no date specified) returned nothing from the Bring Out Yer Dead thread. A search using thread title, screen name, and IMG also returned nothing. After I found a few posts manually and edited them, those showed in the search, but unedited ones didn't

A search starting from the Replies column on the forum page did return some posts in that thread. Whether it got all of them, I don't know.

Omitting IMG from the search using the thread title and "myself" was better than including IMG. The search without IMG found nine posts, including those with images.

Hi,
Very strange. I was going to suggest this;

Go to your member page, (click your avatar)
Scroll down almost to the bottom, the last group of 3 links on the right hand side includes

" SEARCH: For posts with images by OhLook "


But of course the resulting search page looks exactly like what you are already doing, ie: using {IMG} as your text criteria.

And of course this won't find forum attachments either will it?

Another oddity: Sometimes a search page includes entries without the thread title, so there's nothing to click on to get to what I presume is a post. EDIT: No, there are no posts by me with those four dates in that thread.

Screenshot from p. 5 (the last page) of a thread search.
