1. Open a Search
2. Enter IMPULSE in the search field
3. Select FS/BARRELS forum
4. Select ONE MONTH
5. Leave all other settings default
7. Note the results don't include this thread http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...readid=1031350
or this thread http://www.pbnation.com/showthread.p...readid=1043505
The only thing I can figure is that the thread I noted has the following text "impulse/" and "impulse," However, if you search on those terms it still doesn't show up. Search on IMPULSE* and it doesnt show up. Search on *IMPULSE* and it doesn't show up.
And I utilizing search incorrectly or is there an issue?
The search runs against a table that is cached and not the live data. The information is updated once every hour so you won't be able to search something unless it's at least one hour old.
The search will return a maximum of 250 results on the past 4 months of information.
You cannot find words less than 3 characters.
Unfortunately the limitations we have in place are needed. I wish it were otherwise but I've spent many hours as it is just getting it to the level of performance that it's at. It has
been improved since the old version of our software and I think that's important.
I'm sorry that our search is not ideal but we are limited in our resources. As far as I know all vbulletin sites our size are in the same boat.
I've had the best results by searching via thread titles.
