View Full Version : Search returns irrelevant hits

Just lately, when I go to do a search, I get every single stinkin' thread on TFL.

For example, I just acquired a .22wmr derringer and wanted to review old threads. So, logically, I typed in ".22 magnum derringer," left the thread selection at All, and got back 503 hits, most of which had nothing to do with derringers, or .22 mags for that matter.

Wazzup wit dat?

The search feature is broken right now, something went wrong in the 5.38x series of this software.

Hopefully Rich will turn it off until it get's fixed. It would save a lot on server load since it's not working anyway....

Thanks, guys. I've been offline for a few days. Spark, I'll disconnect the search and post an announcement today.
