    What's Wrong With The Search Function!!!!!!!!!!

    This site has to have one of the worst search engines I have ever used. Even when I have the EXACT title of the thread the search function can't find it. How useless is that????? Or MAYBE, what am I doing wrong? When I type the same thing in at Google the thread pops right up....

    In case you're not sure about how to do a site search, go to google and type site://rcuniverse.com followed by your search. This works with any website.

    If Google can find all of the articles without a problem, why can't RCU find the threads created on their own site?
    Even before the change over, the search engine RCU uses doesn't work very well, and certainly isn't user friendly.

    Yes, it's odd,, I hate to moan and groan, but it would seem this version of Vbulitin they gave us is lets say,,, Cheap. Other sites that run Vbulitin seam to run smooth as silk

    btw
    Before (in the old system) you had a quick search via the search button and you had the "old search"... the Old search worked quite well,,

    Agreed...I always used the Old Search method they offered instead of the supposed newer better search engine. Much better search results.
