There's one particular bug on MB which has always irked me.

1. View any thread
2. Click Search this Thread
3. Enter any value in the field that appears and click Go button

Page then displays Database error pictured below for address "https://www.musicbanter.com/search.php?do=process"



Similarly, clicking the Advance Search link and entering any keyword(s) in Keyword field and cliking the Search Now button returns the same error.

Note: Searching by User Name works here but returns the database error if any value is entered in the Keyword field.

I've tried multiple browsers, clearing cache and cookies for all time, rebooting, and every other permutation of "turning it off and on again." The issue has persisted for as long as I've been a member of MB (since 2015).

The work-around I've found is to go to Google and to enter the desired search term with "site:musicbanter.com" before the query. That does the job for now.

I then tried searching site:musicbanter.com from Google and looking for prior discussions of "search" and "database error" and found a thread from 2017-2020 where TH and others reported the issue.

There, Plankton demonstrated that performing an advanced search from the main page appears to work, and he also suggested the Google "site:musicbanter.com" workaround that I'd been using.

Both those methods still require the user to manually dig through every page of the resulting threads so it's still a pain.

Maybe one day it will be fixed. But I won't hold my breath.

Have we always argued over the most idiotic things or is this a new thing?

We're idiots, so no, we've always done it.
