The All Knowing Search Utility

Post by kyle » Sat Jul 23, 2005 8:27 pm

We encourage members to add to the already existing discussions to keep down the number of threads on the same subject matter. Having all the information on a single topic in a central location makes it much easier for members to find later.

Check out the search utility. This is a great tool to find the other existing threads.

There is however, one major bug in this search function. If a search result overloads the database then an empty result comes back. For example, if you search for the word "zombie" on this forum you will get a blank result.

This is obviously not true. I'm quite sure the word "Zombie" has been used in this forum. To our knowledge "zombie" is the only vocabulary word with this problem. Just don't use "zombie" it in your search. This is further proof that Zombies are bad.

Also, if you get too many results back then try to narrow your search by using multiple search words in your search phrase. Don't forget to select "Search for all terms".

Good luck!

I'd like to add something for the old crotchety people like myself around here. Please no complaining about topical thread necros. We can either complain that people are not using the search function or complain that old threads are being bumped. We can't have it both ways. For the new people, if you bring back an old topic, please try to add to it.
