    Default Forum search bug

    Hi guys,

    I noticed a bug within the vBulletin platform (I guess) related to the searching option...
    When you try and search for a new term, the search results will be indexed into some "id", so on the next time anyone is searching for the same term, they will be referenced to the same cached id. This is usually done to speed up the search and to decrease the processing on server-side.

    The bug is that those cached search id results are removed after a very short timeframe (appears to be ~1 day or less), so on the next time someone will search for the same keywords, he will be referenced to the same search ID which will have no results because they were already removed...

    because of that, you cannot search the forum for the same keywords, you have to change the keywords a little bit to make them look like new search criteria so you won't be referenced to the cache...
