Long Story Shorter... I'm a long time coder, just in a different technology stack.

On a site of interest to me, using their Search feature I plugged-in two search terms which no doubt should have returned a large number of hits... but instead returned nothing.

As a favor to them... figured I'd dig into this issue and figure it out.

The fact that it makes use of techs I've merely not had the experience of working directly with yet is of little worry to me. Been down with computers since the days of the C64.

My hunch was that perhaps the code for submitting the search terms was probably not handling the trimming of chars properly. Or maybe didn't like certain punctuation symbols being contained in the search term. Just a hunch. So just wanted to review these spots in code.

Please indicate where an extremely savvy coder/user would begin to look for your API docs. Ya probably have it up in the Support area somewhere... but at the moment I can't spend time diving for it as I have lots of debugging/testing of our own stuff I have to do during working hours. (We have a new version beta they want to get out the door in our particular unrelated software market)

Any techie links to get me up to speed fastest would be appreciated. Thanks.

all search results code is located within the /scripts/dosearch.inc.php file.

The third party UBBWiki is our documentation resource, and UBBDev is our third party modification resource (both owned by myself, a contracted developer for UBB.threads), though note that any modifications to your base system is unsupported by the vendor (UBBSystems).

The UBB.threads software does not have an API that you can tie into; however, there is the User Authentication Class which allows for a PHP bridge into the software.
