A Forum Search that works

Recommended Posts

I've long since abandoned the forum search, preferring instead Google site search because it works.

eg - a search for eps returns the dreaded

'There are no results for your query. Please try a broader range of search criteria.'

really?

I agree. The folks at Google are the rulers in this arena. Heck, even an Apple Support search won't return relevant results sometimes because of a small typo or whatever... I wish everyone could just use Google's great (but also sort of scary - in a Big Brother way) search code(s)... Or do I?? Hmmm...

So the wish is(?): Get a Forum Search that works.

I agree!

I keep trying to use and make sense of the Forum Search and Advanced Search. Never with much success. Is anyone out there able to make it work?

and how about that spell checker? "Vectorworks" is flagged red.

Ah, I hadn't even considered that.

From that entry "Currently, Version 8 (of UBB threads) is on hold due to it being incomplete and needing more work."

I guess we, and NV, are beholden - unless the forum is ported to a different architecture.

Then I suppose the thread topic should be a wish that NNV find better "forum architecture" assuming it is out there.

Several years ago there was a similar discussion and someone had shown how to effectively search with Google. But I searched the forum and could only find this:

I totally agree. It would be nice if Help was actually helpful too.

Another one we totally agree on Bruce! :confused:

i have never reached a satisfactory solution to anything i ask the "Help" in VW.

You'd think that the fact that Nemets have bothered to make use of something like Air to run the Help they'd at least have taken the trouble to see if a Search got an expected result.

Having said that, it doesn't give much of a result with Photoshop either. So maybe it's Air that is the "spanner in the works". :)
