Does SEARCH Really Work ?

I did a search for 'SSB' and it came back 'no results found'.

I go to one of the forums and SSB occurs three times in the first page of posts. Is "Search' broken?

Try using the custom Google search feature. Most people think that it works better than the SEARCH function provided by the vBulletin software that powers this Forum. It's in the small "Search" pull-down menu in the upper right part of the page. Or click on the link in my signature and bookmark it in your browser for future use.

You want to know how well the google search works, enter "old varnish" - 19 hits.

I use it all the time. There are so may old threads that supply information exactly like what I'm looking for.
