Cant find a topic using the search facility

I have been trying to find an old topic on how to measure chain length (I think mine has stretched) - despite clicking on 'bikes & bits technical' it always throws up 'all topics' therefore there are hundreds of only vaguely related subjects with chain somewhere in them.
Can you help please - I expect I am doing something wrong.
thanks

Hi Jac,

Try this one

You are correct about the Search facility . . . the filter on specific forum does not appear to work.

I found the above topic using "chain AND wear AND measure"
. . . and selected display by post, rather than by topic

Something's amiss methinks. I tried the following searches:
  1. "chain AND stretch AND length" with "Search for any terms or use query as entered" selected, and got no results returned.
  2. "chain stretch length" with "Search for all terms" selected and got 750 results!.
  3. "chain stretch length" with "Search for any terms or use query as entered" selected and got what seems the same results as the previous query.

AFAICT the first two queries should be effectively the same - but they're not.
