Exactly what Matt said.

In fact I thought Expedition Portal Xen was really good, and now having this version I see its flaws as well.

Yeah they have done nothing to improve/fix.

I honestly don't spend much time on them, but I have noted that on the G8Board and the Mini-van forum, they have adjusted their margins and made some little visual tweaks, but nothing compared to here. I think I had to do a search on the van forum for something recently (strut choices I think...) and their search function was cleaned up compared to what it was originally. Being that I was able to search the specific RS platform (4th gen) section instead of getting a cluster fuck of 40 years worth of generations. So I was able to narrow things down a little. :D

But again, NOTHING compared to how blissful this place is.

So basically I just need to get our search under control.

Honestly, I haven't had an issue here with searching. So I don't know what the complaints are.

Unless you use the advanced search I added, then it's fine.

Its not just that, I have times where I search older threads and I just cannot find them. Sometimes I can in Google search though.

I'll be honest, I don't use it a lot, but the few times I have, I had no issue.

So I figured out why the search function IMO, needs to be reconfigured.

When searching by thread title, it sorts by Date Thread Created, when it should consider recent activity and sort by Most Recent Thread Activity related to your search.

Example: When using the search term "android" with the "search thread titles only" checkbox checked, "Android Crew" is probably one of the most active threads and should be one of the top choices.

Instead, it ends up on the last page of the search results due to it being created in 2013, one of the first Android threads created, while being one of the most active.

Search on Xen blows, simple as that. Sometime soon, I'll upgrade us to the "enhanced search" to see if that helps.

I do find the quick search and advanced search (both add-ons) to work a bit better than the default search.

Makes them stand out a bit more. Was a free add on. Testing it out.

It doesn't work on tapa, big surprise.

I wasnt sure about the mention upgrade at first but I dig it. Definitely puts way more emphasis on the mentions and dresses the post up a bit.
