    Why does searching for 4.0.6 in a forum search return nothing?

    There are message headers, topics, body that contain these words.

    Using the Google Search (at the forum root), I get results. The advanced search does not.

    It probably has something to do with the way vBulletin builds its searches... I can't possibly begin to comment on how that works.

    I would think that searching on a version number would be a good feature to have working.

    That's understandable, but the art of search indexing is throwing stuff out. Google tends to have more resources, so they throw out less stuff in general. Other indexing algorithms throw out stuff that's just numbers, short strings (in vBulletin, search strings must be at least three chars), etc.

    Personally, I'd rather Sencha not worry about trying to delve into the guts of the forum search algorithm, as that can be a very time intensive activity. I'd rather they spend their time on the product instead.
