Vuze not finding torrents
#1
My main drive crashed, so I had to re-install Vuze on the new hard drive. I am trying to locate torrents of recent titles and for the most part, no matter what I type in, I either get a few completely unrelated hits or I get most of a page of hits for "Pioneer One". On the old drive, I had no problem but even torrents for things I found on the old drive are not appearing.
I'm assuming that there is something improperly set in the settings, but for the life of me I can't find anything concerning search parameters.
Help would be gretly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!

I use Vuze in Azureus mode (Classic interface) so I'm assuming that you are using a search function within the default Vuze GUI itself or are you referring to "Swarm Discoveries"?

Did you do a configuration backup and if so, did you restore your config data and torrents from a backup.  (backups should be kept on another drive/usb stick)

Do all other functions of Vuze seem to operate as normally expected?

My vuze searches aren't finding torrents either. Did you get any answers about finding torrents? couldn't make any sense of the answer here

Many search templates that were native to Vuze years ago have been removed.  The ones that are now native are worthless.  If you did a new install, you probably lost your original search templates and thus getting very poor results.  Check which search templates are being used to do your searches and add whatever you can find via Googling.  Avoid Torfeat search templates because they include monetization.  Which templates you find may be old and outdated.  It is hit or miss.  There are other threads that deal with how to change or update templates.

Someone with more coding experience than I have really needs to update search templates and make them available, please.

Thanks. I gave up and found another client- Folx. It's not as good or multi-functional, but it finds my torrents.

Any chance of someone, with more tech knowledge than I have, downloading some current templates that are easy to put onto Vuze. Have now just paid for my second Vuze plus as I uninstalled my old  Vuze because I thought it was not working. Tried to download templates but could only find a site (that I used before) that has really old templates. It was easy to download the templates from this site and I am looking for something new that is easy too. Am completely hopeless on the computer but had no problems when everything was working. Everything has changed!!!!

Extratorrent is GONE.  All my subscriptions were based on that site..  Innate Vuze search templates are far from comprehensive.  Can SOMEONE crfeate templates for Rarbg or eztv, etc. please and make them available to the community?.  I have no experience writing HTML and Vuze meta search is worthless without functioning search templates.

I used Vuze to Download almost exclusively Movies.   So disappointed at the disappearance of torrents.   But....
 What has worked for me:  I just went to:  thepiratebay.org 
 I have been using that torrent site to find the movie I want.  I make sure that VUZE is open in my computer.  In Pirate Bay, I click to download the movie and get warnings to not D/L anything without a VPN.   I click to download anyway, and the file automatically starts IN Vuze!   Voila, problem solved.....

When I search for a torrent, my Vuze + is giving me a long list of torrents I did not ask for and not giving me the ones that I DID ask for.
I can find no solution to this. Removed old Vuze+ entirely and re-installed but this did not solve the problem.
I need help - but I do not understand the technology so I need a simple answer.
