I am in the gay movie section looking at RAW TENSION but when I do a search on it, there are NO results!

That is a BIG problem, because there are ever 543 pages of movies, over 16 thousand topics and without a working search function, how is one supposed to find anything?

UPDATE: if you pick the SEARCH option next to FAQ and increase the number of characters searched from the default of 300 to 1000, the results are much better... BUT that search function still needs to be improved. What's the point of having 16 thousand topics if the only one's people can see are on the first page? That is typically the most recent 32 of the 16,000 topics. It would be nice to see what the other 99.95% of the topics are.

Don't use the quick search at the top right (you're right, that doesn't work); look just below it and you'll see a Search link (next to the FAQ link). That one works fine.

Someone above suggested using the SEARCH link next to where it says FAQ.
When doing that, there is an option to change the number of characters searched.
The default is 300 - which gives very poor results.
I raised it to 1000 which seems to give good results.


That search function needs some work!
