    I just noticed this too. I always use the advanced search option. I hope this isn't further permanent degradation of the search feature.

    Like how searching by user name used to sort by last post in the thread not the last time that user posted in the thread.

    Looks like they just removed the link. You can still access it from http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php

    advanced search is causing some problems so we removed the link for now.

    So how am I supposed to find all the posts that I made, without advanced search?

    Go on your profile and look back through the posts you've made there.

    Advanced search is crucial to the function of this site, I hope it's back and working very soon.

    It never went away. The OP of this thread noted the URL in his first message: http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php .

    There are rewards for following the site feedback forum.

    I saw that and used it, but the VAST majority of people aren't going to find this link.

    Things seem to be OK. If you search on

    advanced search

    you only see the messages in this thread. Also, the regular search will drop you into the advanced search page if the regular search gets no hits.
