Interesting.

I'd expect they could sample and take a few notes about Pekka Saarinen's excellent code
which drives his POTN forum.
I know some of our members also lurk or participate over there. That's a great setup he's made.

I'd like to see similar changes implemented to the coding for this forum.

If the search routine here could be fixed, I'd be happy.

I do my search of the forum via Google to find what I need. Works much better for me.

Me too. Just add "site:mflenses.com" (without the quotes) after your search term, for example
Code:
Takumar site:mflenses.com


Works with most search engines. However, only the Public facing forums get searched -- Photographer's Cafe and Official News And Announcements are not included in results.
Code:
uggabugga site:mflenses.com
for example will not find this post.

Which brings us to the other forum search lack of functionality -- inability to search other than Subject, such as text in Posts. Using forum search for "uggabugga" will not find this post, for example.

phpBB has the ability to add required sql indices for searching Posts but performance cost may be high...
