forum search gone awry?

    hi,
    after the last few days, a week i guess, seems like every forum search i make has exactly 5 "recent posts" and 5 "relevant posts". that is for the ones which return results. i searched "buffer~" just now and got no results. used to be i got a lot more hits. seems googles a better option.
    cheers,,

      i should increase the font size on my screen so i can read properly.
      nevertheless, i was using the "form: any" option.

      hi,
      thanks. forum search works ok but it seems if you search for terms with a '~' (i.e. buffer~, poly~ etc.) there are no results returned.
      cheers,,

      I had good results looking for "cycle~" once I had unchecked "use exact words."

      PS: Really happy there's something besides Google to search the forum with! There's nothing more irritating these days than a search engine that returns results you didn't specify. Always nice to know what you're looking for doesn't exist, rather than buried under thousands of things a search algorithm thinks is more relevant.
