Search Problems
« on: December 26, 2013, 07:51:58 pm »
I've noticed that while in any discussion subject in the forum, using the Search button at the top right corner of the page will limit the search to that subject as expected, but will never return more than the first 30 matches.  Using the "Advanced" search will return more than 30 results, but only topics (not subjects within a topic) can be used to limit the search; also there seems to be bugs in Advanced search too, because not all occurrences of the search string are actually returned.

Anybody else had problems with this?

The search function of the forum software is shit. Use google instead and limit search results by adding a site:eevblog.com statement to the search keywords in google.
I delete PMs unread. If you have something to say, say it in public.
For all else: Profile->[Modify Profile]Buddies/Ignore List->Edit Ignore List
