Thanks for replying. I do not perform Metaname searches. This is a basic
search from http://www.prophezine.com/search/search.shtml
"escape from armageddon" displays 0 results.
"escape armageddon" displays many results.
The CONFIG.H file has this text:
#define IGNORE_STOPWORDS_IN_QUERY 1
/* Added JM 1/10/98. Setting this to 0 (default) causes a stopword in
** an AND_RULE search to create an empty result. Setting it to 1 simply
** ignores the stopwords and does a search on the remaining words.
Was a bug introduced and not noticed? My config file, less the directories
to search, is listed below.
Thanks for your help on this.

"from" is a probably a stopword, but this should not
prevent the search from working. However, there is a
problem if you are searching on a MetaName keyword: a stop
word in a keyword search, eg:
does give "no result".
