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.
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.
