RFE: better search on the boards

Postby mjl1966 » April 7th, 2016, 3:54 am

"Reset dice", search engine says "dice ignored"
"Dice", search engine says too common.

This is the sort of thing that really makes searching, well, impossible in this particular case. (This is just an example. Most searches I make return too many results because of ignored words.)

Any way the forum guys can take a look at making the search engine a little more useful? I know there's a lot of good information in here, but I can't find it because the search engine says, "NO!"

There's nothing we can do about it short of becoming phpbb developers.
Sorry.

You might try a real search engine, but limit the results to our site. That's likely to work better.
