Search by group or poster no longer working

Post by JohnnyR » Fri Dec 13, 2019 7:04 am

If I use this search from your guide:
Like: Mercedes group:pictures
I get nothing. And any other search by group either returns nothing or many unrelated results.
Where do I find out what the new syntax is?

JohnnyR,

When you make posts like this, please specify what version of NewsLeecher you are using.

If you are using a V8 beta, try this forum test release and see if that fixes the issue:

bug fixed. no idea how. hate it when that happens. trying to break it again now. will. not. be. defeated.

I am using V8.0 Beta 3 and am no longer able to search by group or poster.
As I mentioned the sample search "Like: Mercedes group:pictures" returns nothing.
Other searches like "group: magic" return many results none of which have "alt.group.magic" in the result.
I do not have search append clicked.
