I separated this into a new thread. The powers that be are more likely to see it this way.

What are your complaints with the search system? Anything specific that's bugging you?

-emily

ps Are you talking about the search feature on the main site, or on the forum?

im talking about the site search system

for example if you write two words it searches rewiews that have only one of them

and it searches the whole rewiew for word, not just the title, which makes things hard to find

Erm... you just described how a generalized search engine is *supposed* to work. It would be a pretty useless search engine if it only looked in titles. Note that it does rank by the score for each particular word or words, so results that use the search term(s) more often should appear first.
