Looks good. :)

Saw this, it is definately an improvement but the ability to choose how to sort the returned results, by relevance, last post date and submit date would be well worth adding :)

(Good test is to search for 'repuatation' then look at the results in misc - the results are pretty random to be honest)

Might be better to add a direct link to the advanced search from this search?

Edit: It's already there, I think it should be down the right hand side below the other filters.

Not really, I wouldn't have said so anyway, as the returned results (as a whole) match the terms - but sometimes they would be better rearranged by last post date or submit date. Eg you are searching for a deal you know was made hot about a week ago - it is going to be easier looking at the results chronologically than in a relevance order...:thumbsup:

Just to add, simple search now defaults to deals forum btw :)

Yes just click on All if you want results from everywhere.

It does seem a lot better - especially with the options down the side....

please for gods sake, default the simple search to sort results by thread start date.

Everytime I search and select For Sale/Trade I get threads from 3 years ago!!!!!

After you have clicked on the FS/FT option you can then filter by Last Week or Last Month or Last Year (options on the right hand side of screen) :thumbsup:

Why are some results returned on every page?

The search does return some very odd results and orders - it seems to repeat the 1 or 2 most relevant results at the bottom of the returned page on every page (search for troll or charity is misc and look at the bottom results then change page).

And a search for 'help' returns nothing at all!

About time

still doesnt work. results come back in a completely bizarre random order as it did before.

should come back in last post date or submit date order

I'd like to see search by date, providing your search term is relevant you will get better results by date as the newest submissions will be more valid - across ALL forums. Not really seen this TBH over the last few days, would be nice if it was :thumbsup:

been the no1 request on this site for years but devs just ignore it as they have this fixation in making the search as incomprehensible as possible :x
