PCA Forums search facility.

Trying to follow the right route I have been getting some odd answers to my search questions.

For example I tested the system by searching the forums for "Cyclists" knowing full well there is a current thread in Speakers Corner with that exact title. This is what I got by way of answers. (you may need to click on the image once downloaded to get to full size)

I have never found the forum search very eficient,
and I do wish the results could be presented in date order.

seems to search the threads rather than he title.
would like to be able to search for:-

1, thread title - PCA Forums search facility.

2. name of poster - anskyber

3. or by date Thu, - 05/10/06

The same questions come up over and over again(sometimes posted in a slightly different way).

I have a set of "stock answers" I use all the time.

If the search facility worked, we would be out of a job.
