    The second link shows better what is going on, it is the same as page one, and page three, and probably all the way up to the very last page as well.

    This is not just with one search type but with them all hmm

    I'm seeing the same thing as well. I'll bet sunforged didn't know he posted to the same forum thread about 1,000 times in one hour.

      Something similar is happening in the "Your" option in the Forums under the Latest Activity in All Forums...many entries by one poster who only made three posts.

      Larry, I'm still finding the same thing here:

      http://hubpages.com/forum/your

      Marisa made three posts to one thread, but it looks as though there were many, many more.

        Each individual post that you make will cause a row to appear on the "Your Posts" page.  The "Most Recent" column shows the user that made the most recent post to that topic (a topic being a collection of posts).

        Marisa only needs to have the most recent post for her to appear many times.  It is you that made the "many, many more" posts.

        I can see how this might be a bit confusing, but that is actually how it is intended to work and not really bug.

          I understand this-- and I like the idea, because if I make several posts on a thread (looking at "Your Posts") I can go back to look at the replies since I posted my first, second, third, etc.

          The glitch was occurring in the search box function-- which seems to be fixed now, Thanks!

            Search box still malfunctions for me. I caa get a list of 10 unique results for any search and all the rest of the results pages are the same, as someone described above. Thanks!

                I have a similar problem, I cannot find any of my hubs or myself in the search facility... even if I put in the full name of the hub.. they all exist on my profile/account and I can access them all directly but none show in searches
