Has anyone else noticed that the search function doesn't highlight the terms after the first page? Just thought I should let someone know if they were looking for errors in the scripting.

There are no errors in the scripting, there are simply errors in your expectations.
I just tried it and it worked for me. In the url, there should be a part where it says &hl=someword where someword is the highlighted word. If that's still in the url on the second page, then the word just isn't there dude.

edit: Like so: http://nerfhaven.com...88&hl=scripting

No, it's wrong. Try searching for the word "impossible" in Community displaying all results as posts. the search bar becomes a billion characters long. Go page two. Nothing is highlighted.

The problem is that when you're displaying your search results as posts instead of threads, for some reason the variable name changes from hl to highlite. When you use the page number navigation buttons, they erroneously keep using the hl variable instead of the highlite variable. You could either change it by hand every time you switch pages, or you could switch pages by adding &st=25 to the end of the url (or &st=50 for page 3, and &st=75 for page 4, and so on).

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for actually. If you notice, that search has some 25 pages.

Yeah, so I deleted someone's post here by accident. I don't recall the member, but the gist of it was that he was concerned about us using an outdated version of Invision and then basically accused us of running an ilegal version of the software.

So, whoever that was, I have the following response:

1. We ARE running an older version of invision, and for logistical reasons have not gotten around to updateing it in a while.

2. Invision has been paid for, and we are indeed running a legal copy.

3. Only a douchebag would come onto our free forums and suggest that we're stealing software. Now, I'm sure you're not a douchebag, and as such it's probably a good thing that deleting your post has prevented me from exacting some manner of knee-jerk administrative retribution as I cannot remember who the hell you are. DAMN YOUR ANONYMITY!
