Ron, how is this coming along? I needed to search "240" from a user today and couldn't because of this retarded rule.

Thanks

Ron's heart is as cold and dark as a night in a siberian forest.

Look what happened to the "Arnold board".

No need to change anything, if you want to search for

jay

just type in

jay-

, if you want to search for

CQ

just type in

CQ--

, if you want to search for

jay cutler

you should type in

"jay cutler"

anyway. Problem solved.

Why not? If you search e.g. for

cutler

, the results are exactly the same as for

cutler-

. The '-' at the end seems to count as a character but does not change the result. What exactly did you try that didn't work? For combinations of words you have to make sure to include a space after the '-'. E.g.

xxx- yyyy

would be correct.

There seems to be a general problem with the search for specific users. Nevertheless, I at least got 1 entry for '240-' and user 'gh15'.

Try hgh- without specifying a user, does that work at all? Because it does for me.

OK, I guess there's a general problem on searching with certain restrictions then.

Yes, it should say "Getbig Forums > Search > Search Results".

You probably started with typing in "240-" in the Search field on the top right of this board. Try clicking on "SEARCH" on the left side menu and then type in "240-" in the "Search for:" field.

Wow, it seems you have to have a degree in computer science to use the search effectively.  ::)

However, there really seems to be a problem with searches restricted to certain users / boards.

Wrong, first one to pop up is of our good friend Schtoarki. ;D
Funny thing is, originally it's actually an Italian dish (Piccata Milanese).
