Re: TL! UserVoice

Even without the $ symbol a search for "ADD" turns up nothing. This is just one example. I frequently run into search difficulties. Ergo, my original post.

Re: TL! UserVoice

Just a little suggestion - but it would make quite a big difference at least for the way I use TL:

In the "New Posts" view (and the others where threads are shown) if you want to see the latest post you'd have to click on this very tiny little right arrow (in the column "Last Post"), whereas to the left of it there is a big link with the name of the person posting.

Maybe I am getting a little old but it would be certainly nice to have this arrow at least twice the size as to make it much easier to click it (It normally is much less interesting to see information about the person posting).

Some extreme solution might be to even make the whole cell (not only the arrow) a link to the last post.
If the user really wanted more information on the last person posting he might click then from the posting.

Google site search would be ideal but due to the number of pages we have this is a very expensive solution and something we would not consider. The next vbulletin 4.0 system is supposed to have improved its search engine but I doubt we would migrate to 4.0 right away as this requires a recoding of the entire site.

Ill see what other solutions we can implement. Thanks.

Re: TL! UserVoice

For a temporary solution, I have added Google next to Advanced in the search engine (top right corner). Google custom search will basically search from the currently indexed pages so Im afraid it does not update real-time but should be more efficient compared to the current forum search engine.

I've never seen anyone run a forum even close to as well as you run this one James. You should be proud.

We just have a nice crowd of traders that tend to be respectful for one another. Of course creating the initial atmosphere is important but members on TL have done a great job preserving this culture.
