TOPIC: New Search System

New Search System 2 months 2 weeks ago #131270

Maybe it's just me, but it appears that the search function doesn't seems as robust as the old one. I was trying to ID a boat that could be a Pacific Mariner, A Su-preme Spitfire, or a Fleetform model as they all look similar. The library pics were not detailed enough to ID exactly who the manufacturer was so I tried to do a search for each of the manufacturers to see what pics might show up in in the forums. Nothing tuned up in a search of all three names.
To check, I tried to search for Herters and only one entry in a forum showed up. I know I have seen many, many, posts about Herters boats.
It's very possible that I am not using the new search system correctly.
Any advice on what I may be doing wrong?

Don,

Not sure but I searched for Herters and Pacific Mariner got many posts. Make sure you have the date range set to all posts maybe, not just the last year which is the default.

Ken,

I don't see a date choice in the search engine page like the old one had. I think I am not using the full search engine.
I have been clicking in the Quick Search on the lower right of the page. This what I got. I am not seeing a way to specify the date range. Is there another way to enter the search function? Thanks .

Don
