ive noticed the search results are not what they used to but I don't think that's deliberate.

making th forum privte would it fall in the search rankings and only people knew correct address would be able to find it.

You can still allow google to index the site. But since the SSL certificate has not been setup properly, we are not doing well in the search rankings regardless.  :(

The person responsible for this state of affairs is Nbg1066. It's obvious why hindering research on the case would suit a supporter of the relatives, who for obvious reasons would like to block the easy availability of information highlighting their roll in framing Bamber. But why should it suit an administrator of this forum?

I have just noticed that the site's own search tool is not working very well either. I just typed in "Robert Boutflour" and was told
 
"Sorry, no matches were found"

From the standpoint of the relatives and their concerns this is a very favourable state of affairs, though not for some guy writing a book on the case.

I just searched "Robert Boutflour" and got over 700 results  :-\

That's not true,Harry.
 I can understand your frustration as I had this same blank reception when I tried to search certain posts pertaining to RWB, though when you just type his name, you'll find the majority of which Mike has posted and a few 2018/19 posts but certainly not the volume that once was.

Just did the same search and got 26 pages! You have be (and have ALWAYS had to be) on the main (index) page to do a complete search of the forum. If you do a search from inside a thread, it will only search the thread! It has nothing to do with NGB and more to do with your own knowledge (or lack there of). I am sick of people making stupid paranoid assumptions about how we have somehow manipulated the forum for whatever ends. The forum hasn't changed and if people have an issue in future have the manners and decency to ASK, then you won't end up looking silly!   >:(

Then again, the problem might be between the end users computer screen and the back of their chair!  ::)

There are 26 pages of information in respect to RB. Nothing has changed that would hinder a search but you HAVE to be on the index page to capture ALL references. No point searching in a thread unless you  know that there is something specific in that thread you want to find!

To capture ALL references on a subject - search from THIS page http://jeremybamberforum.co.uk/index.php and if you want to be even more specific encase your search in quotation marks ...................... "search criteria goes in between here"

There might be room for discussion soon when we hear what the CPS has to say re. the reply about the non-disclosure of some key evidence.

I guess it will depend on whether they view it as having been "key".

If it's not been seen before it will be key.
