Search Features

The search feature is back on the top left. But now it does not find the same threads that the forum search function will find.

I thought the top left search looked through the forum as well?

Am I wrong in thinking this? I brought this up because of all the videos PITBULLMAN keeps posting. Example, (youtube video tag H03kvxlwstw) The top left search did not find the videos, the forum search did find the videos.

Perhaps he posted the same video but by a different YouTube member.Therefore it wouldn't show up in your search. I just tried the search looking for "c46" and it worked just fine showing all the gixxer.com threads with that term in it. Btw I used the top search box of the two.

Re: Search Features

There were always two searches. One is a google seach and the other is the forum search. I always use the forum search.

Re: Search Features

Three top left. One is eBay, one is google and one is forum. Then there is also the search drop down that has three both Google and forum, and at the bottom is Google and forum. So that is at least six or seven not counting ebay

I thought of that as well. But the search came up with nothing at all when I entered in a video I posted.

But the forum search did find the thread.

At one point, recent weeks, there were no search features up there. I think oldfart brought it up.



I just did a search for a video voo posted and it did not find it in the google search on the top left. It instead searched for skivvies when it was supposed to be the YT tag zHKivyPvexI When I click on 'Search Instead zHKivyPvexI' it finds nothing.

The forum search did find it.

Not complaining just pointing out the fact that the search is wonky. <-- Yes.


EDIT: noticed there are google searches under the forum search as well. Results same same.
