Search feature

Post by Regnier »

Is it just me or does the search feature on this site kinda suck.

For me it doesnt take many of my searches because the words are "too common."

I was searching "world of daggerfall" but it said too common so i just searched "world" and that was too common too...

PHPBB search is limited to be sure. Try narrowing down your search and using some different keywords.

I've noticed you're creating issues in Help & Support for problems with the forums. This area is for Help & Support with Daggerfall Unity specifically. I'll move these topics to Community.

Here's something that might help. We can use Google search to find stuff on the forums using site:forums.dfworkshop.net in their search field. For example, I enter something like the following into Google search:

Code: Select all

world site:forums.dfworkshop.net
And it finds conversations using search term on the forum URL only. This is defo an improvement over the crummy PHPBB search built into the forums itself. :D
