    Question Mark

    Is it possible to force search for ALL keywords?

    i.e. "Family Guy" returns all results for "Family" and "Guy". I only want to see posts about Family Guy not Family Feud, My Family or The Addams Family.

    Advanced search by Title doesnt help.

    I've tried the following combinations:
    "Family Guy"
    Family+Guy
    Family-Guy
    Family&Guy

    Any ideas?

    There is a way but it's not turned on because it's too slow.

    Then it works more like google (but still not as good).

    You could just use google, type site:filesharingtalk.com search terms

    Google: site:filesharingtalk.com search function sucks

    Is there by chance a way to narrow that down to search a particular section of the board? For instance, the NZB search function sucks b/c it uses the same sucky function the rest of the board uses. It can be quite annoying.

    As for the search function taking longer with the other options turned "On", I would much rather wait a few more seconds for quality results, than having quick results which I must continue to search tons of threads or NZBs for what I was looking for.

    I think the problem would be that it's not just the search that would take longer - the whole board would slow down. If the database server is working hard to process search queries, it would be slower to load threads, etc. That wouldn't be popular

    The search function at this forum is just plain awful. I just ran a search with the phrase "Family Guy," here are the first few results.

    Hello, Noobs...

    Searching for Family Guy basically shows me every thread ever made, instead of stuff related for Family Guy. What the hell?

    It is returning all threads which contains a post or posts that contain either the word "family" or the word "guy".

    We should perhaps provide a link to Google from the search function menu or something
