Hello.

I was just wondering why the search box is so poor. I have never been able to find past threads using it.

For example, I want to find the thread where we discussed KVB so I search for that and get a load of pages that don't contain the term when I do a text search of the page.

Am i doing it wrong?

If you perform a search while reading a thread in a sub forum the search will only search that sub forum.

I agree that SMF's search is frustrating.

Topic only search seems to work better.

There seems to be a problem with forum search when the forum log file gets large. I cleared the log file when I moved the server to Amazon. So hopefully everything keeps working until I can get the search issue with the log file sorted.

So I type

The search function is useless

into the search box while in this thread and get no results

??

There is surely a mine of information on this site if only people can get access to it.

Try this:

Search for exotic

Topic is returned with mention of exotic plaything

Now search for plaything from home page
