Question about searching forum

Postby bariskok » Sun Apr 24, 2016 4:28 am

When I use search function of the forum, the results are fewer than I expected. (ex: "update") I think some other posts should be shown because they seems to include search term, but they are not shown. It is hard to find information I want, because search function works differently from what I expect.
I will be happy if someone in charge check searching engine for any problem. If I am missing something or doing wrong way, can someone explain to me what is the mechanism of the search engine, and how can I search better?
Any advice or response is fine with me.

Did you use the normal search function or the advanced search function, which lets you specify more keywords to refiine your search?

Down at the bottom of the page there is a small link on the left side that takes you to Advanced Search.

The Php forum works better if you used Chrome for the browser instead of Internet Explorer. EI has problems formatting the page properly and may maide some functions and pages hard read and use.
