In the forthcoming release, we are going to implement completely new search module, which is more native, simple and fast comparing to previous. Your opinion is welcome.
Currently, you can test the module live on our forums:https://www.minibb.com/forums/index.php?action=search
Only 2 ways of searching by phrase left: searching by all fragments
of words and searching by the whole
phrase or word. This plan is covering almost every popular request. One or more search words are highlighted in bold in search results. Examples:Admin Login
problem (the most repeated question on miniBB forums)Install Problem
As more search parameters you specify, as more complicated and thinner becomes search. Given parameters cover many tasks. Examples:Search by all messages user Team done in May 2004Any news appearing in News forums on miniBB.com in May-July 2005Anything about file upload in miniBB
You are welcome to report any suggestions or bugs in this thread, regarding new search module.
