    Is the Search feature broken?

    I searched on XD-S and XD-S 9 and I get no results. But I used that t exact term in a post earlier this week so I know it should have been found when I did the search.

    Can someone explain why I don't get any results?

    A search engine attached to a forum like this isn't smart enough to search by parameters that short, or vague maybe. Or perhaps another silly reason like it's an old-style BBcode engine and thinks the "-" is a minus sign and anything after that is to be excluded from the search, as opposed to just being a "dash". Who knows.


    Regardless....

    Use google's more advanced search algorithms instead by typing "http://www.defensivecarry.com: XD-S" into the normal google search box.

    No quotations, don't forget the last ":" after the ".com". Replace "XD-S" with whatever you want to search for within this forum, from google.


    The "More results from www.defensivecarry.com" link below the first 5 or so sub-links will produce the total of the search results.




    Good luck!
