Use the search box to the right of your user name near the upper right of the screen. I just tested it and got results from 2012.

that works ... kind of

Thank you Mac ...

the "google search" does in fact return older results, but it searches the entire site (triumph675.net) - and returns a ton of results from everywhere in triumph675.net.
.... is there any way to get the "search this forum" or "advanced search" to return (more detailed) results older than 2017 ?

The 500 result cap doesn't fully explain the lack of results when searching specific terms in specific forums. Going to talk to a tech about running some rebuilds of the site Search Index

I agree. Iím sure itís because of the server switchover they did a while back. For whatever reason though they havenít fixed it.
