Is there an issue with the forum search engine?

Postby FC Zach » Tue Oct 17, 2017 7:34 am

I attempted to search for a thread on modifying the driver's window switch to auto-up that I was positive I had seen some time ago. . . I searched "auto up window, window switch modification, and auto window switch" but none of those showed the thread I was looking for.

Tired of fooling with that, I opened the tech section and on the first page I found the thread I was looking for "Power window auto up". Now that seems close enough :shrug: It shouldn't have to be word for word LOL.

The topic I was looking for:

The forum build-in search wasn't very good, and we switched to using Google. Not perfect either it seems...I repeated the searches you did, and indeed the thread is not showing up.

I've found it to be hit and miss. :(

It takes time for Google to index new threads. The new ones may not show up in the search results.
