    Searching not bringing up results as expected

    The search mechanism on this forum doesn't always work the way I would expect it to. My last search was on "California", a word that I know has been brought up many a time. I got no results.

    Also, is there a way to add more searching capabilities? For example I want to search for several words that are in the post. So if I am searching **Glock 27** I do not want all the posts that have the word Glock in it OR all the posts that have 27 in it. I want both those words in the post.

    Also (while I am on a rant), if I type in "Glock 27" it seems to ignore the quotes and searches for either Glock or 27.

    Not bitching () much. But I do write software for a living and these are standard features.

    I realize it could just be the way vBulletin is written, but these features would allow people to do more better searches.

    To quote a valued member, just my $.02 worth.

    Click on "Search This Thread", then "Advanced Search" in the popup. Common single words will sometimes not return exactly what you want, but I am going to need to rebuild the indexes soon, anyway....

    Try "Commiefornia" or "Kalifornia"

    You might also try google, a search on california got 455 hits.

    type this into google: california site:defensivecarry.com

    One thing I found is if you type the word poll into the search it will bring up all polls that have been posted. A nice way to find polls!
