Search not working right?
When you go search it only searchs for a word or two out of what was typed and says it is not using thoses words because they are highly used words. Then you get results that are nowhere near what you are seaching for because it only searches for one word out of what you typed and makes it VERY hard to find anything. What is up with that? It makes searching harder. Is there something i am missing or what is the deal? If it will not serch for the words that are typed in then what is the use. Maybe someone could pm me and explain.
Update: as told in the following replys you can put an asterisk in front and behind the words and they have to be at least three letters long. And by the way i love the new site!

Try putting an asterisk (*) in front & behind each word. Not sure why but that seems to work.

This should be all fixed. Back to using Google Custom Search - which works much better. The * after term should no longer be necessary except within forums ("Search this Thread," "Search this Forum," etc)..
