Search not great.
Posted 18 July 2011 - 11:07 AM
If i use the simple search (not advanced) and search for "deleting administrator account" It returns no results. Even though i know there is a thread called "Deleting Original Administrator.
Surely a search containing two of the three words should trigger a result..
The problem is, people always tell you to search for the answer that "has been posted 100 times" but unless you nail the exact search criteria you get nothing....
Well, that's what appears to be happening every time i have tried a search on these boards.

I'm not sure what the issue is personally, I just tried to find an old topic I know I posted and still can't find it.

It sort of renders the whole search feature pretty useless on this site. I hate creating new topics and would much rather find the information which has previously been posted.
It works on other large sites, so what is IPB/IPS doing so much different?

I find myself having to create a new topic to find something that has probably already been discussed.
And then you get some smart guy saying "How to use the search feature" etc.
Can somebody give me a heads up to whether this is actually going to be addressed?
