The 'forum search' is pretty primitive and often does not work too well, and sometimes produced errors. The search function in the forums is integral to the software, and is very hard to change. You can use Google instead, but you need to type in quite a few terms to get it to just search the forum...
I decided to make a little custom Google search engine, that allows you to just search the forums
and not any other sites, and allow you to use all the powerful search options that Google offers. I've set it up here:
Tennis search site
It's very basic so far, but I just want to see if people find it useful. I've only put in the major forums so far (like this forum), but will add others if people find it useful.
If you try it, let me know if you find it useful or not. If people find it useful, I'll start adding other options/catagories as well and will tidy it up a little. Any suggestions for ways of improvement/additions would be welcome as well, as long as they are not too tricky to implement
