      Description

      ForumNG search -

      If you want to perform the advanced search without using the simple search
      first, maybe you want to search on author or in a date range, then your route
      to it is by using the simple search (search this forum) without any arguments
      (screenprint 1) and then using the 'more search options' button from the next
      screen (screenprint 2)

      The message you get back from the first search is 'Could not find any results
      including the word No words matched. Try using different words.'. This seems to
      be a sort of amalgamation of two error messages, and comes over to me as being
      a bit clumsy and confusing. I wondered if it could be simplified to aid clarity
      and usability.
