    Default An Alternative Way to Search These Forums Using ....

    I needed to search for something today that I know I recently saw but using the build in VBulletin search gave me nada! [Edit: Obviously VBulletins's search does work. We've all been using it for a long time. My example just shows the results I got when I used the default search screen. Had I navigated to the "single content type" screen and changed the highlighted forum to "all" or the ones I knew would have the postings, and made sure to search entire posts and then cleared other stuff like user name -- then I get the expected results. You can compare the alternative to see if it has any value -- will be curious to hear what you think.]

    You can multi-select which forums to search to further limit your free search criteria that can use the thread title, user name and full text of the posting.

    I'd appreciate hearing about any problems with it, or other comments.
