Different results from DC search
« on: April 11, 2006, 09:41:19 PM »
normally in DC forums page, i search via f+rr's alias but once i was trying to search via DC's forum itself. however the results seem to vary as can be seen from the screen-shots.

the alias returns better results, so i looked into the search url:
DC Forum: http://www.donationc...x.php?action=search2
F+RR alias: http://www.donationc...h=shoutcastconcierge

again, they look the same. maybe someone can explain this "phenomenon"?

i noticed what i think is the cause of this:
try placing the string in double quotes in search box, i.e. "ShoutcastConcierge" instead of ShoutcastConcierge.

the simplemachines.org smf search function is one of the few areas of the forum software that needs real improvement.
