Post subject:  Search feature on form

I am an old visitor of this forum but for about 1 year and half the http://forum.undernet.org/search.php is NOT working anymore.

Test it yourself, try to search a string and display one topic which contains it. I had more luck with google searches on this forum


Thanks

Hello, SomeUsername

Please provide some more info.
Does the page load? Does it not?
What are the exact words you're searching for?

I've tried some searches, even irrelevant ones and they seem to work perfectly.

Awaiting your feedback,

As soon as my free time permits it, i`ll write a tutorial about using the Search feature on the forum. I`ve been wanting to do it for a long while but i`m been busy.

The page works, there`s no errors on the page, but the search function is kinda tricky, if you are looking for exact result some steps have to be followed.

The search function contains the so-called 'stopwords'. They're regular words that if used within a search, would eat up the system's resources. These are common words like Undernet, username, etc.

If all you're getting is a blank page, it's because you're probably attempting to search for a common word that wasn't defined as a stopword yet.

The Search function permits operands aswell, for example

Bad search:

Quote:
cservice


Good search:

Quote:
Channel AND Service


When else fails, you can always try google, as this website is indexed by search engines.
Just search for "your-keywords site:forum.undernet.org"

Hope this helps,
