Has anyone else noticed "search" is changed?

If you type in more than one term in search now, it no longer finds only posts with all the keywords, but instead grabs posts with any of the key words. There is no option, even on advanced, to make the search produce only threads/posts with ALL the selected keywords. It is making it very difficult to help folks out, finding archived materials. Can it be fixed so it works the way it used to?

Re: Has anyone else noticed "search" is changed?

Agreed. Searches with ANY keyword vs. ALL keywords make it almost impossible to narrow down some searches enough to get meaningful results. Hopefully it can be switched back.

Yup, it sucks. Boolean search terms (+, -, etc.) no longer work either.

Re: Has anyone else noticed "search" is changed?

Well, can it be fixed so that specifc information can be located herein once again? Or are we doomed to be unable to help ourselves or others.

Oh how I long for the good old days, when you could search for "big coil springs" to find springs that work for big block applications. Now we get 16 pages of threads that have any of the three terms in them, and the specific thread you're looking for doesn't even make it into the 16 page max of threads.

Please, please, please tell us it can be fixed, TheDon.

Re: Has anyone else noticed "search" is changed?

Any update on this? I tried an advanced search with a single keyword and a certain username, and got all the posts by the username, whether or not they had the keyword in it.

Re: Has anyone else noticed "search" is changed?

Bottom line....without a good seach function makes all the information in the forums useless...
And when it comes to detailed complex subjects, like dizzy curves, means rhat people have to re write long winded explanations over and over.

Just replace the code /files before the change was made...I do hope that backups are still around other wise someone has a mission on their hands.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: Has anyone else noticed "search" is changed?

That's is what I am hoping, that whatever was changed following the changeover to new management here can be reverse easily.

We have such a wealth of info here, but it has gotten to be such a bear to find (and with a max of 16 pages of threads, some info may never see the light of day again) it is impossible to help folks out.

There have been a dozen threads or so in the past few weeks that I wanted to help with, but the info cannot be found.

I know that we had a long holiday weekend here in the US, but 7 days without even a peep on something that is important and would seem to be a simple fix seems odd.

Noticed the same thing. Glad you brought it up as it was driving me nuts.

Just "flip a couple bits in the master catalog" and we'll back in business.
