    Search Functionality

    Advertisements



    The search function does not work very well in the forums. I tried typing in 'Toronto' in the search box for the SGU forum and I only got results from 2004 & 2003, although I know there are many posts from 2005 with that word in them.

    I agree that the search functionality is poor. Seems to only search on pre-indexed keywords or something, as searching for words I know are in a post I was interested in finding always pulled up no results. I eventually had to use Google/Yahoo cache to finally find and retrieve the post.

    The search database was redone and should have fixed the problem. Please let us know if you notice any glitches. Thanks.
