    As many regular forum users know, search has always been a weak point for all forum software. While our previous change was a great improvement over the stock search functions, it was still lacking.

    Today, we introduce an entirely new search engine. This new search engine brings you more relevant search results, a better display of the results, and better options for narrowing your search results.

    To use the new search feature, simply type what you are searching for in the search window. If you would like to use our old search, which will remain available, simply click on the "more" button before performing your search, which will bring up the search engine we have been using for the past couple years.

    Give the new one a try, let us know what you think.

    So far, those that have given this search a try on their forums have had almost all positive results.

    We have use of it for 1 year before I start having to pay for it, However, we need as much feedback on it as possible in regards to likes, dislikes, recommendations, and just overall thoughts about it in order to help improve the product.

    I wish I would have opted into trying this sooner because I think it is far better than our other options.

    This would also be a good time to tell everyone who is using the media gallery to be sure and describe their images well, because this search engine has an image search function as well.

    Did you search from the homepage, or from an individual forum?

    Any feedback on the way the results show now, as opposed to the old search? Better or worse?
