We can now # on here like #gtir
This will allow people to search topics easier if members use a # on their posts.

And tag someone in a post. Like @nomad
So if you you are trying to tell someone to message a member. Put the @ before their user name and it will tag them in your post.

You might not use it often. But its there if you need it Smile

Any chance of the search having a couple of advanced options as currently only searches thread title & not thread content, plus it requires exact word spell match with no allowance for example plural form of nouns . example being a search for 'spanner has' no auto logic feature to include the plural 'spanners' .

Would be good to if each post in a topic was auto numbered & the number could be used in a hot link so you could link someone direct to a highly useful/relevant post within a topic that could be multiple pages of posts long .

hope that all makes sense :-S

Only being able to search thread titles and not content makes searching abit difficult. I noticed that when I was looking for threads about tools the other day. Being able to tag people is great though thumbsup

I'm only trying to search on my phone, but it seems to only highlight the search phrase in a post where it also exists in the thread title, does that make sense? I'll try again later

Yeah that makes sense.
I will jump in the laptop later and see if i can alter it.
Its hard because our standard search cant be modified. So im having to create one using google. And then add it to the site.

I have added a google search bar. Its not pretty but atm thats all i can do.
It does the job.
It will only search for results from this site but on google.
Have a try and let me know what you think please.

Had abit more of a play, it's defs working but it's not picking all threads so not sure if that's fixable or if it's a Google thing. For example search tps and this thread doesn't appear http://www.gtir-motorsport-club.com/t4217-car-keeps-climbing-revs-on-idle

i would probably keep the current inbuilt search as it reliable at search linked to post titles & perhaps add the google embedded one to the left of current one, then users got best of both options.
Good but easy to use search really makes a site useful & helps content remain more relevant as save people constantly asking same questions & enables people link to highly useful info quickly.

assume you working on it as current search has permission blocked state at present .

I have looked and cant see a way of sorting the google one.
And the normal search function cant be changed.

Google one normally quite easy as can just be link really that passes on the word/phrase to new tab/window for the search.
shame the normal search doesn't have option for search thread as well as title :-/

Arghh that's no good, thanks for trying anyway. It's odd the forum search is designed that way though

I see the google search bar on homepage & homepage only.
Seems work okay from quick look at it.
Would be good tone it down & try add in tool bar table to left if possible, if breaks code/layout I expect someone like digitalfaze might be able tweak code for tool bar, make google search bar smaller.
