New Forum Search

Post by admin » Tue Sep 25, 2018 9:27 pm

If you've used the forums for a while you may have noticed that the forum search functionality really wasn't very helpful. This is a problem with forums running on phpbb - phpbb search is to be honest a bit rubbish.

To try to make the search a bit more useful, I have changed it to launch a Google search for the keywords entered. The Google search is limited to the forums and the SharpCap documentation (,

The advantage of the Google search option is that it gives much more relevant results. The disadvantage is that Google will typically not have indexed posts made in the last 2 days or so.

If you want to access the old forums search functionality for some reason, it can be found by pressing the 'gear' button to the right of the main search box or from the 'Search This Topic' and 'Search This Forum' search boxes.
