I've seen repeated criticism of the search function on IMOC and can't really understand why. You just need to be quite specific with it.

A few tips:

1) If you type a series of words in and don't fill in the box to 'Search for all terms' it will return posts containing ANY of those words - i.e. hundreds.

2) You can accomplish the same as 1) by writing 'and' between each term (without the ''s obviously)

3) All Boolean logic operators work also. I.e. AND, OR and NOT (don't need to be in capitals)

To search for all posts about Tein suspension type 'suspension and Tein' in the search box

To search for all posts about suspension that is not made by Tein type 'suspension not Tein'

To search for all posts about suspesntion made by Tein or Bilstein type 'suspension and Tein or Bilstein'

Any questions, let me know [thumleft]

Old post I realise, but I think it'd be a good idea to make the "search for all terms" the default selected option, rather than the "search for any terms". If you dont select all terms, it pretty much brings up 90% of the posts on IMOC for anything you search for. Having the least useful search option as the default isn't a great idea, I too thought the search fuction was rubbish for some time until I realised you could do this.

Not a major issue but might help some of the newer members find stuff [thumleft]

I was gonna do that, but then there will be hundreds of redundant posts across the forum explaining how the search function works... like this one!

Wow, glad I stumbled across this thread, I've been a member for years and have never been able to figure out the search function.
