There are a couple different types of difficulty I get from the search field.  Here is one example:
I searched "Rogue spiders" and the post came up.  But, when i clicked on it, i was routed to the home page (Problem 1).  I see the avatar but I would like the user name too.

This is because the forum was recently using a modification called "Pretty URLs."  What it did was change the URLs of every page to something like:

Code: [Select]
http://bellgab.com/talk_radio/art_bell
Recently, that mod had to be removed and all of the URLs changed back to their original form because it was making it almost impossible to merge similar threads and perform other maintenance stuff.  However, Google has not yet finished indexing all of the forum's URLs since reverting back.  That means if you click one of the search results and it points to one of the "pretty" URLs, the forum software will dump you onto the main page because the URL doesn't exist and the forum software prefers to send you to the main page rather than give you a 404 error.

The problem will fix its self as Google re-indexes the forum with the URLs as they currently are.

Where did that go? There is a drop down arrow next to the Top Right comment that reveals it. It used to be open by default or at the very least remain open if selected. Now it isn't. What gives MV? If you are going to change things in the future please consult me.

Here's why that happened to you:
