Warped search function

Post by Luke Frost on August 19th 2012, 11:35 am

Having recently made changes to a forum community from which I administrate, I was able to make the portal more accessible to everybody.
This included the search function in it.

However, several users have reported issues with the search functions. For example, the word 'fuel' has been written well in excess of 100 times, but only comes up three times. That is in the whole post body option too.

Any ideas on how to fix this issue if it's not a bug?

The search engine on Forumotion forums is by keywords in topic titles. So if there is only three titles with fuel in it, there will be only three items show up in the search.

Is there any way to change that to a global search function?
