it's been boned for me since before christmas. If you can fix it or give me access so i can fix it that would be wonderful. It's extremely hard to navigate the forums without a search function.

The search function has been useless for years. It's the size of the place.

Actually, such a funktion is not necessary. Using Google with: "your search string" site:http://matrixgames.com/forums/ works as well.

the fact that such a function is not present on a website in 2011 is, to say the least, ridiculous. I don't know what language is being used to program Matrix forums....but it needs updating if something as simple as a search function isn't working.

Granted - it's a low priority - but only if you don't want to/need to use it...a website in 2011 hosting a forum should have a decent search facility

...and i thought it was just me, i don't think it's worked since 2006 when i joined... though what "it's the size of the place" has to do with it i don't know, it just never finds anything...

but, as lutzow shows with the google query, like it or not that's going to be the best way to do a search!

Please fix the search function. A forum that is not searchable for this long is joke.

Even Matrix is going to fix this issue sometime (and get rid of the iis/asp crap), the database would be still slower than Google's search engine, as there are more than 1 million postings on this board. I really don't get why you guys deny to use Google with 'filetype:' instead. It's fast, reliable and serves same purpose.
