Search within a nested post?

Postby sturmie » Sun Apr 01, 2018 3:15 pm

How do I search WITHIN a post? For example, in the picture below if I search within NewsBin for "hermits", it won't show that "EK40-02 - Herman's Hermits..." file because it's "nested" within that top level post. I can, however, get it to return a search for "needles and pins" because it's that top level of the post.

Thanks for the help.

I've looked at header downloads and at our search engine and these files don't seem to be grouped together in either place.

What version of Newsbin are you using? You can't search because they're grouped but they shouldn't be grouped.

I'm thinking you might want to re-download headers with 6.73 because this combining probably come from an older version. Or you could try RC7 but you'll still probably have to re-download the headers to uncombine them.

It's a small group so, it doesn't take much to re-download headers.

Thanks for the suggestion. After right clicking the newsgroup, selecting Download Special >> Download All Headers, it seemed to group that same set of files again, although this time in a different order where the "Herman's Hermits" file is now the primary one (and searchable). Weird. Is there a setting a can select that tells Newsbin NOT to group any files like that for this particular newsgroup (or all newsgroups really, I typically use an indexer for other downloads)? Would it be better to just uninstall Newsbin and re-install fresh?

FYI, I PM'd you a screenshot.

I'd suggest RC7 then because it didn't group them there.

Great, thanks. I'll try it when I get home this evening.

EDIT: Never mind on the link to RC7...found it :).

Upgrading to RC7 worked! Thanks so much for the help.
