A better search

Post by Guest on March 15th 2009, 10:25 am

First topic message reminder :

Hey Smile
I've been trying to use the search function here recently, but no offence, it's awful. It doesn't help in the slightest.
It just picks out one word of the sentence. Like I typed this in for example:
"How to promote your site"
And it picked out one word (site) and looked for threads that had site in the title Mad
It's a little frustrating, can we sort this out?

Thanks

Why so retarded a search function?

Don't Forumotion want 1000's more users or something? Because they will leave!

Well people will leave FM if nothing's done.

The search function now is moronic.

When I used forumotion ( I don't anymore for any important forums.. ) , I had an HTML page with Google Search.
Something like this: http://www.geekpolice.net/Search-h6.htm ( that's Dr. Inferno's forum )

"How to" Details: http://www.google.com/cse/

Very good

Yes, yes, yes . . . at very least the search needs to be improved so it picks up content in the bosy of posts as well as the title.
