I searched with your member id and got over 120 results, don't know why you'd get so few.

Did you see the link right after the field where you enter member id, "(my own posts)" ? Maybe that's an easier option that you might want to try out?

In http://www.coderanch.com/forums/search/filters/32
i enter option

Search Forum(s): All available
Search by Date: Any date
Search By Member Id: 155553 (my own posts) This no. appear by clicking on my own post link

Topics started by this member (this option i select)
click on search button

Now i got 28 records were found

But i started this topic also. & in this 28 records not included this topic.

I give answers many topics so as you say i am also getting 115 records were found.
But i write 156 messages right now?

Aha, I wasn't understanding the problem before, and now I think I was able to reproduce it. You're searching for topics that you started everywhere and that example isn't showing up in the list. Hmmm. I'll call the repair people, hang on...

Apparently the search index is not up to date right now, so search results can be off slightly. It should be fixed soon (in the coming days/weeks).

Thanks Pauline McNamara for helping me.

First i started that post with different name(what India achieve from slum! slum dog millionaire) but by some circumstances i change its name as (TEAM = Together Everyone Achieves More!)
I think by editing some error occur in updatability. :!:

As every project got small errors or something like that after using it by end user. This new forum also got it.
But as a code rancher, i want this forum is most efficient for all. So i telling this other wise, this small search problem is not affect my normal routine. & i didn't write very important post so many people search my post! but many people writes many very important post about many subjects every day.
I think this non updatability with me only or with others also.

I watch my public profile there is one line shows:- View your public profile (including list of all your posts/threads)by clicking this link.
I seen my profile in that,(Number of messages posted:[190] Messages posted by Mandar Khire). now after this post it should be 191!
But when i search
i enter option
Search Forum(s): All available
Search by Date: Any date
Search By Member Id: 155553 (my own posts) This no. appear by clicking on my own post link
& selecting All topics posted to by this member
Enter start button.
I got 186 records were found
why this difference occurs? where are 4 posts?
& again when in my public profile i seen Created topics:[39] Topics created by Mandar Khire
In search i got 38!
My new topic is not shown after more than 2 hours. I know for updatability it require time but how much?

Some of your posts have been in topics that were later deleted. That explains the discrepancy between "messages posted" and "records found".

As to recent posts not being found, that's an area of the search that's not yet working perfectly. I would expect it to be fixed in the coming days or weeks.
