The search bar at the top does not work but you can click search next to faq and get good results. Rgds

The one on top is through Google and it seems to have gone downhill in the past year. I have been looking at the search function from Bing. Maybe I can include both on the results page.

Would be handy if you adjusted settings to where when a user does a search inside the forum, they don't often get the message saying "that keyword was ignored because it's too common".

search.php?keywords=7b&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search This search for "7b" don't meet the minimum 3 letter requirment, but would be a useful search.

search.php?keywords=zone+7b&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search This search for "zone 7b" returns ... The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: zone 7b.

search.php?keywords=bamboo+seeds&terms=all&author=&sc=1&sf=all&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&st=0&ch=300&t=0&submit=Search This search for "bamboo seeds" returns ... The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: seeds bamboo.

And searches for seeds, bamboo seeds, planting bamboo, etc, are bound to be some of your most popular searches. In fact, with current settings, the most popular topics can not be accessed using the search feature. Overall usability and the web user experience can be enhanced with a few setting adjustments :) or so i think :)

I have changed the search setting and I will rebuild the indexes tonight.
