    The Search Function

    I know I'm not the only one that's tired of it. Can anything be done to fix it?

    Example: Go type 'sad but true', without the quotes. There's a thread called "The sad but true picture thread"

    The search shows it on the 2nd or 3rd page of results. Now try it quoted ("sad but true")... result is first page, but it's more than halfway down. There was a post in it yesterday, and it's buried by old threads that must have those words in them or something?

    I think the search absolutely should show threads that contain names/words/etc within the posts... but can it prioritize relevant thread titles before threads that contain the words?

    I have a similar problem, I try to remember a word, in the title, but when I hit search, the word, comes up, in the content of the thread .....

    use:
    "your search terms" site:ingunowners.com
    in Google

    Much better. Most forum search tools simply, well, suck.

    Why not use the advanced search where you can search thread titles rather than content?

    I too find the search function lacking, but I generally do what Snapdragon is suggesting. With advanced search you can set it to search "thread titles only."

    Oh I'm aware of the advanced search... but as someone that has to find threads often, those extra 2-3 clicks are a first world problem. The default search box at the top-right should just work in a logical way.

    I pretty much stay auto-subscribed to every thread I contribute to.

    ... But that's a lot of threads. That one thread, for example, was back a few pages. Would be excellent to just type the main words of the thread title in that little white box and see it right there.

    Don't know why I have to get so much resistance on this. I know there are other ways to search, but if the search worked how it should, that would be ideal.
