Search never returns results

I've done nothing to modify the search template. I search for words that I know appear in posts and it never returns results. I am using the latest.

Do you use flat file installation? If so you can try to rebuild the indexes. That's under Administration / Maintenance.
Quality is in the detail of things............

Want to change or update your PivotX site? Mail or PM me!
I can also convert your site to a Wordpress site!

change db_version from '11' to '3' and following those directions did not work.

The link didn't point to that answer. It pointed directly to

Two common reasons why MySQL can't find words:
- If the word is too short. By default mysql indexes only words that are four letters or longer.
- Words found in 50% of the entries/pages are ignored by MySQL. So, if the word is too common it won't be found at all.

That also was not an issue. I've decided not to use Pivotx in part due to this issue. I appreciate your help.
