Maybe it is the forum, or maybe it is me but I'm having trouble with the search function. I just received a Guild 885 and using the Forum Search on '885' I didn't find anything. But when I turned to The Google with Gruen 885, it gave me this page: http://vintagegruen.org/vgforum/index.php?t=tree&th=83

Are others having problems like this?

interesting. typing just numbers into the search feature will consistently return no result. I tried 405, 420ss, 707 etc., but with the word searches no issue.

Gary?

Good find! Numbers are not being indexed, only textual entries in the default software. There is a way but I have to modify a search array in the code.

I'll proof this out on our test forum and let you know how it goes.

Guess us old members here have that search indexing in our heads.

Thanks again for pointing this out!

Implemented and tested good in the test forum. I Just made the changes here, looks good!

Have at it!
