    Search Function Frustration

    Is there anything that can be done to make the search function more useful.

    I have tried a number of searches since the big switch over and can't find anything. Mostly it seems the search function is dropping all the common words in the search term, and returning hundreds of non-relevant hits on the remaining term or two.

    For example I recently tried to search for "hot tub flush" and once the words hot and tub were removed from the search I ended up with 500 hits for the word flush. I also don't see a way to limit the search to a single sub-forum, but suspect that is hidden somewhere.

    I tend to remember Jason saying the plan was that in a few days (after Google updates it's search for the new software) that the site will swap back to google for its search. Give it a few days.

    As Leebo says, Google still has the old URLs cached, and so is returning results that don't work. Once they refresh their cache up (several days) I will switch the default search back to Google.
