So if I understand you correctly, the search function on your own site is fundamentally worthless and the only option is to content with the forced user profiling of the evil giant which is called google. Pitiful.

But really, as much as I'm not about to claim this is the best forum is the history of the internetz lolz!!!!11!11!!, the term 'BH G5' is quite ambiguous and other sites had an issue searching for it.

I know, as when I was buying that exact frame I went through the same dramas.


Please, relax :lol:

I'm with leviathan on this one. The search function here is not good. Typically I'll search for two or three words and the search function with ignore two of them, and leave me with the most general word possible.

Every time a poster gets a message that says "use the search function" I roll my eyes.

Look, 2-letter searches are EXTREMELY server intense and will lead to massive slowdowns of the forum indexes every time somebody searches a two-letter term.

Would you rather have a crisp/snappy user experience on the forums or be able to search 2-letter words?

This issue is common to MANY forums that are based on uBB or vBulletin type implementations.

now THATS an informative answer, many thanks. Posts telling me "use the search" or "relax" are the last bastion of the ideologically rigid.

Using Google by putting between "" what your looking for, and adding the site operator is often the best way to find things on a particular website. Like this : "BH G5" site:weightweenies.starbike.com

my problem is Ive no real ambition to make google's founders infinitesimally richer by using it if I can avoid it.

Don't pretend that you're too good to use ANY search engine.

Speaking of search, it would be dandy if the search function would work with the iphone forum reader Tap-A-Talk. It used to work (months ago) but now no searches work.
