What's wrong with the Search on this forum?
« on: September 13, 2009, 07:32:21 PM »
As subject or is it me?

I have just tried searching for Banner and have returned 26 pages of hits of which only one seems to have the word banner highlighted in yellow.

Every time and no matter what word I choose to search for when I use the search function here I end up with 23-26 pages of 'hits' the great majority of which do not contain the word I am looking for...

Is it just me who is too stupid to use the Search function and unable to find anything that I want?

ISTR posting about this last year sometime so either the search function is dodgy or I really am too stupid to use it.

I'll get my coat...;^)

Thanks & regards,
-=Glyn=-

Here's an interesting observation.

If you search for "b*gger" or "cr*p" the results are reasonably good.
Perhaps it doesn't like the word banner?

Lets keep the language nice please.

The search isn't great, before anyone says anything we didn't make it nor the forum code :)

The best way is to do a advanced google search:
http://www.google.co.uk/advanced_search?hl=en

Enter "airnavsystems.com/forum" in the last box "Search within a site or domain:" and search away.

See...trouble follows me wherever I go...;^)

Well that works extremely well AirNav as the new banner I was searching for to include on my website came up in the top slot!

But being cheeky (who...me?:-) isn't that a bit like using a 3rd party add-on to the main program to get it to perform a basic function that should be built-in and work out of the box? :-)

Thanks & kind regards,
