If he's like me he means the one supplied with PHPBBS.

Can't those developers at PHPBBS make it so we can search for phrases etc?

This php search is completely retarded... how can you not be able to search for phrases? It's like de-evolved searching technology. I think I'm going to light it on fire. :evil:

The google thing. Are you saying to just use google to search this site? How often does google index the site? Unless you mean something else... like the google toolbar or something cause I don't use it.

Why should we need Google to search the internal database of the forums? Isn't that why there's a search function built into the forums?

It can't be that hard to make PHPBBS search engine take everything I enclose in quotes as a search string.
