Search box dosn't bring up all results

Postby JonWW » Sat Sep 01, 2018 5:11 am

Doing a search for the TV series "House" or "House MD" at no time are you able to find the correct series in the list displayed. It does exist, and the only way to find the TV series is to do a Google search "thetvdb house md" and it comes up first in the list.

I don't know of any other TV series that might do this, but I imagine there may be others.

Many thanks

The same problem exists with the TV series "After Life" https://www.thetvdb.com/series/after-life
there appears no way of finding it with the search box, yet again a Google search finds it immediately.

Does any one else have this problem? For me it only started after v2 of the site.

It is a known issue. For now After Life has been placed on the main page in an attempt to minimize searching for it and the creation of duplicates.
