Hi when I try to PM "Murphy's friend" nothing happens after I search and then select Murphy's friend, the select window just stays open, if I select the entry name above or below Murphy's friend it installs their names in the send to member just fine.

When I try to search posts by "Murphy's friend" nothing happens after I search and then select Murphy's friend, the select window just stays open, if I select the entry name above or below Murphy's friend it installs their names in the author window just fine.

This has been the case for ages with the PMs but today trying to search for posts I decided to ask you for help as i cant search for what I am after.

Thanks in anticipation... Mike
If at first you dont succeed, I suggest you avoid sky diving....

As a work-around, in your browser search-bar type:

site:thebackshed.com "Murphy's friend"

Add more search words to narrow down the number of results.
Won't fix the PM issue though.

I just tried Phil99's suggestion, it works!
strangely, I can search all of my posts, clicking from the member list

Strange indeed, thanks for the suggestion Phil but as there were now 2 weird things going on I thought it was time to report the issue. I think I have been singled out here lol

I'll make Gizmo aware of this thread.
Maybe he can look into it.

Thanks for the heads up G

I can bet its that single quote ' causing the problem.

I'll look into it later this week when time allows.
