    What search terms are you using - verbatim?

    I am also having troubles searching. The function used to be great and would tell me what percent of relevancy the thread was. Now I just get all sorts of stuff nothing even close to what I am looking for.

    not working for me either. I searched for "old chains" including quotes, and got back a ton of unrelated results: http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=5736640

    This has been happening to me for a few days now, since the last maintenance I think.

    It's like it's doing a 'search for any' instead of a 'search for exact' or something.

    No, the stupid search function is broken again, guys.

    I don't know what to do about it, let's hassle a moderator!

    It seems the search only processes words of 4 or more characters.

    If you do a search for [old chain] (no quotes), the engine results: The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search: old

    Try searching for [worn chain] or ["worn chain"] or [chain stretch]

    that's nice, but it doesn't have the filtering that the built-in engine offers.

    I searched for banjo brothers backpack using the main Search all Forums and came back with the most recent posts from all of the sub forums. Then I searched in just the Commuting forum. Result was the same, just the newest posts irregardless of thread topic.

    I searched for [banjo brothers backpack], searching titles only, and only resulted one thread. This one: Banjo brothers backpack

    Was that the only thread that your search yielded?

    I remember when I searched for something before, it would yield various threads based upon relevance. So that thread you found would be a 100% match, then some one recommending it in another thread would be less, and so on.

    Thanks, bd. Looks like you've gotten a little insight in how to narrow the parameters, nicely.

    I was searching for tire opinions in the road forum. I searched 'new tire', 'training tire', [new tire], and I keep getting the same crap. Is there something wrong with me?

    [training tire] : http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=5755325

    [new tires] : http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=5755328

    training tire : http://www.bikeforums.net/search.php?searchid=5755344

    It's all the same junk. I know there have been countless threads talking about tires, why are they not showing?

    Just in case those links don't work I've uploaded a screen shot. What am I doing wrong?

    the search function through the top right "search this forum - show threads" doesn't seem to work correctly. (right)
    the search function through the top "search forums" works just fine. (left)

    these two 'same' searches don't display the same threads either, and I did those within 10secs of each other.

    Is there any sort of update on the search? Not that it's a big deal, but are we supposed to choose 'titles' under advanced search now for threads related to our search? We doesn't the search function bring up thread titles ahead of individual posts with the search term in them? Seems like that would make sense.

    I've been having problems as well. I finally got tired and just selected the 'title' type. Narrowed my results down pretty good, but still not getting the % relevant match like I used to.
