Been going on for a while now viewtopic.php?f=19&t=63057 I've started using Google search and have much better results. Log in to the forum. Open another window and go to Google. Type in your search keywords and at the end include site:fordification.com. Then when you click on the search link you'll already be logged into the forum. You'll get every thread in fordification that contains your keywords and google search wildcards will work.

Search still isn't working very well.
I do a search, then click on a thread I think will have what I am looking for, when I want to go back to search results, it won't let me. It will say "search unavailable, please try again later" or something to that effect.

I think it's a timing thing. For some reason, if you sit and wait a few minutes, then click back, it'll let you go back. I gave up on the website search function a long time ago and just use google. More flexibility anyway.

I'm sure it must be a setting in the forum software to reduce server load - is there any way we can step it up a bit? Can't even get to page 2 of search results.....really frustrating and makes me go to the "other" site when I need to do research.

Thanks for the information. Vista does not work. IE 9 does.
