The built-in MyBB search function which leaves much to be desired IMHO

I usually revert to Google with site:mybroadband.co.za at the end, but I do wish the integrated one would be just a smidge better
What could you be searching for ?

For instance, I was looking for the "MIA MyBB Forumites" thread but when typed into the search function and selecting Search Titles Only, you get this result:

Google finds it fine however, because it doesn't omit the 'MIA' part

Bwahahahahha I also hate their search program. Thought it was just me not being able to find anything - really glad it isn't.

The worst part is when you need to urgently refer to a thread and it appears to have disappeared into the ether - and then you forget about it ever existing by the time you see the thread again.

I also tried searching for the thread about the jail time for the TV licences, only for it to tell me that 'TV' is too short.

So I ended up with lots and lots of threads about driver's licences instead :unsure:

AFAIK not all old threads got indexed after the upgrade. Works 100% on new threads however.

I know the pain. Makes me thing about the lack of knowledge on SharePoint and how searches fail because they do not understand it.

That thread is one I saw today. If it is the same one where you can be jailed for not paying your TV license. Absolute rubbish if you ask me - but still finding the thread is a challenge

Nope - the only good one. Doesn't mean I want to do it
Then that is why you're expected to cook. Nothing to do with gender, everything to do with ability.

Now get back in the kitchen

No it is a gender thing. Men grew up with their mothers doing everything - and they expect their wives to do the same. How many married men do the cooking every night ?
