The forum search is somewhat tricky. Here are some tips for effective searching:

  1. Searches are case sensitive, so try upper and lower case. For example, xml and XML will give different results.
  2. Searches are for whole words, so for example error and errors will give different results.The forums are spidered by external search engines so you may be more successful using one of these.
  3. Advanced search will let you search with more parameters.
