The "old search" function doesn't exist any longer. When we upgraded to vBulletin it contains a search function within it. That is what is available now. I am the Forum Manager here at RCU and I can tell you that personally I hated the old search function on RCU. It was difficult to use and didn't do a good job of finding things. In fact, before we upgraded to vBulletin I had quit using the search functions and I instead used Google when I needed to find something on RCU. Since the upgrade I have been using the search function contained in vBulletin and so far I have been happy with the results it provides me.

Sorry that you are having problems.

Ken

thanks for the info Ken !

it seems i can't get relevant results with the new search, can you help me to use it right pls ?
usually i enter simple terms like "genesis boat" and with the "old search" i would get relevant threads.
with the new search i get all sorts of stuff... rcu ads, buy & sell ... i just want threads. if i click on the threads "title" and i get zilch.
please help, thanks V.

I have the same problem,, I search keywords I know I've used and get one irelivant result,, then I put my user name in there and get results of others using the keywords in threads I just happen to post in but not of me using the keywords,, frankly it's a joke
