Hi all,

How come when i search for 'PO' in the forum i get no result while there are quite a few topics who have 'PO' in their subject? Is there a minimum chars required?

    Because there is a 3 character minimum for the search form.

    Is it only me, or sometimes the search function doesn't really 'search' well?

    hee hee... maybe my keywords are not really 'key' enough.

    anyway, sometimes what I do is I use Mr. Google to search for mibuso topic instead of using the forum search engine.

    Example: PO

    If I search the forum (all available) for "printer AND selection" the following topic is returned: ... +selection

    If I search for "printer AND criteria", the topic is also returned.

    If I search for "printer AND selection AND criteria", the topic is not returned? :?:

    Is there any reason why the last search doesn't work?

    I find that the result topics are never relevant to my search on the forums, i have to use google as well as stated above!?!

    I use always "Search for all terms" when I search this site. And use the right terms. That works fine for me.

    Still, it could work better. I have problems finding some of my own posts sometimes. That's with knowing what I typed and even then it's somtimes difficult.

    The key is to read everything & then commit it to memory, piece of cake :lol:

    What is more annoying is when you have part committed it to memory, you know you have read it but you really cannot remember where, and finding it becomes a little splinter you have to remove :D
