I seem to be having issues with my searching.
I am searching for known words but coming up empty. 'Splay' is the latest.
Is the search broke, or is it me?

I have noticed the same problem intermittently. It especially seems to have issues sometimes with short (3-5 letter) words.

forum software definitely does not have the best search features.

Signs011 I find our search function more frustrating than rewarding... Angry

What I do is to open a new tab in my browser and type:
Quote:site:shavenook.com "what Im looking for"
(without the "s off course)
As a bonus, it points out when I misspelled things Blush
Works with both Google and Bing as your search engine - if you can't get it to work, go to google.com or bing.com and enter it in the search box.

Great tip Hans.

I've been doing similar using Google. Often I'll even include "member name" too...
