    Trouble searching ??? What's with 2003?? Suggestions ?

    Hey all,
    shortly after the website was redesigned I was having trouble searching, but I figured it was a kink that would be resolved in time by the great people behind this site (YES...WE REALLY DO APPRECIATE EVERYTHING THEY DO FOR US !!). Just signed on for first time in a bit and found same problems when searching for info.. 1 very strange thing I've found is the very few results I'm getting are all from 2003 ?!? Anyone else having same problem? Should say I'm pretty low tech, but I always managed to search out good results previous to redesign.

    Anyways..does anyone have suggestions to get better results when searching? In paticular, let's say I'm searching for info/opinions on a particular model of boots (ie. raichle 124).
    As always..any help greatly appreciated! ZL.

    Use google instead and format your queries like this:

    searchterm1, searchterm2, searchterm3, site: bomberonline.com

    Great suggestion--thanks !!!

    Thanks for the excellent suggestion queequeg.
    Of course results pops up from a number of different websites, but at the bottom of the first grouping of BOL results is the option "more results from bomberonline.com -clicking there gets you tons of BOL results!

    honestly, who can we contact to fix this... I like the new format but I used the search a ton... and now I get nothing. I would rather use this site then continuously going to google. Call me lazy. Also, God forbid I google "board porn".... bad things man, bad things.

    I tried the search to answer questions with older threads right after the upgrade and was very disappointed, haven't bothered since.

    Folks, don't forget that Fin and Michelle just put on SES, came home to try and catch up, and are now at ECES. Once they return and catch up with shipping product out I'm sure that this is on their list of things to do. Heck, they may even have time to respond to this thread.
