    Lightbulb Idea - can we make search engine of this forum a bit effective

    When searching with the string, say for example -
    buffer
    it gives 195 pages, with
    overflow
    it gives 103 pages.

    Again, when searching with
    buffer overflow
    it gives 227 pages which is OK because it's searching for either the word "buffer" or "overflow" and showing all pages. Note that all of this 227 pages will not have BOTH "buffer" & "overflow". Only
    Code:
    195 + 103 - 227
    71 pages contain both strings.

    If "buffer overflow" is searched as a phrase with the " ",
    "buffer overflow"
    we should get 71 pages (or less than that depending on how close both words are) which will make life much easier. Google works exactly like this. Mods, Is it possible to make the search engine of our forum more efficient?

    buffer+overflow returns 71 pages which seems to be close to you desired result. Do some reading on how the vbulliten search engine works.

    Thanks for your reply. I know that I must be missing something because buffer+overflow also gave me 228 pages.
