Awkward searching functions

Postby paul424 » 04 Aug 2014, 17:46

When I try to type "windows 8" and find such string it list all possible posts with the word "windows" . Could you fix that so it behaves as expected ?
Also could you make it by default or by check-box that the typed phrase is searched only under subforum which I am currently browsing ? Current implementation , gives global forum results -- and I don;'t much care what's written on other games' subforums .

I think you can choose the subforum using advanced search.

semantic search (i.e. to allow recognizing "windows 8") is probably only possible by including an external search engine like google. And for various reasons I much prefer using the more simple internal system from phpBB.
