    Default SEARCH doesn't work!

    ^^ See my thread.

    I search "KRS-One" and get nothing.

    I want that thread where KRS-One got slammed by Bill O'Reilly.
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    go to advanced search and select thread titles only.

    i realised this a while ago. anything you search will pick up numerous topics from skampoe and tsa.. since, in theory they should have posted the entire works of Shakespeare now (definition of infinity)

    Yeah it works. It might not have searched because the engine never picked up the "-" operator or something. Searching by thread titles works wonders.

    I might make the search so you can use boolean operators.

    ^Do you not remember anything I told you in the Q n A thread? You should know by now why Krs-One doesnt work.

    Krs One wont work because it is less than 5 letter words, unless someone made a thread where they spelt it like "KrsOne", you wont get any results.

    Serach doesnt work, its shit, ive already told Profilal ENG this already, but he didnt give me a real answer.

    i see if someone searches for a whole sentance with lots of 3 letter words in, it might be an issue

    but most of the time people are just searching for one word, like "RZA", or GZA, or Deck, of Meth. Non of these are searchable terms right now

    SO its basically hiding alot of threads from the past, that will never be seen again, because people cant find them.

    Whats the point in saving threads from the past on your server, if no one can access them again?

    the lag cant be that big, i think you'd only get lag if 100's of people are searching at once, the traffic on this site is low so lag shouldnt be an issue?

    if you want to search for 3 characters, it should be allowed boolean operators too or else its pretty much useless. I found out after that question its possible to do that, so just relax.

    how many results do you think you will get?

    If you searched for RZA AND(operator) something else you can be specific.

    I can make search booleans work but fulltext searching needs to be enabled but I cant find that yet.

    It's exactly what I did because the thread was entitled "KRS ONE something something," And I didn't wanted to 600 nebraska posts of "KRS ONE noolian drips," or whatever.

    I thought two different words were separated by a comma though? So if I wanted to search "The KRS One Boom Bap Rap" as a sentence I could.
