Is it just me...

Or does the search bar not work at all.

Basically, everytime I search for something that I know should be found, I get "Information: No topics or posts met your search criteria" message. For example, if I search IRC (which is not a common word, and should bring up the FOG IRC thread and/or posts) I get that message!

It's really annoying when I can't manually find what I'm looking for.

I just tested it by searching for 'webcammin' and the appropriate thread did come up...but it's really finicky.

It's not a very advanced search, that's for sure. You basically have to type in exactly the right word(s). There is a more "advanced" search here though, where you can narrow your findings down.

It doesn't always seem to work at the quality I would like, but I really have no control over it.

Yeah that search doesn't work well for me either.

I have Firefox's Awesome Bar, so I don't really have to worry about it. Very Happy
I just type "aura," for example, to get the roleplay "Aura: Daughter of Light."
Or I type "seph oo 7" to get the Sephiris: The Price of Peace OOC - Page 7.

So if I typed "webc," into there, it would take me straight to it. If I had other webcam-type places I've visited, I could just type "foo webc" and that'd be all I need to get the "footstepsofghosts.com" webcam topic. ^_^

So, if you get Firefox or you have the latest version already, you probably don't even need to search for stuff like that anymore. Very Happy Give it a try; trust me, it's awesome! cheers

What do you mean, FireFox's awesome bar? I'm kind of confused. Is that an application for FireFox, or do you just mean that if you've visited a page, you can type the title of that page into the url bar, and it'll bring it up?
