    New Search Feature

    Finding this new search feature annoying. If I put in "Ponting", for example, and even posts made by a certain user with Ponting in them, then the results are all botched. Can't organise them by date, the relevancy sorting feature is pretty ordinary. And results just aren't coming up as they should.

    It is way better than anything we've had so far. And I think this is the standard in all Bulletin boards, is it not?

    Yeah, typed in "Zimbabwe" and "The Zimbabwe Thread" was hidden somewhere on page 7, in amongst stuff like "What do you do with girls"

    I just searched for Zimbabwe and got a heap of relevant results on the first page.

    This search is actually more powerful than vBulletin inbuilt search and not a faster too.

    To reiterate what I said in another thread:

    New search is fairly useless to me without proper sort options.

    Yeah, couldn't agree more. The search tool has become completely useless to me without this.

    Also, not that big a deal, but we don't seem to be able to search for multiple words in quotes. Not sure if we ever could, but would be nice to be able to.

    I find that it doesn't bring back stuff I know is there.

    I've been playing with the search the past few days, and its been driving me crazy too!

    I'm going to attempt to put the old search back and monitor the server load this weekend.

    Stay tuned.
