    I don't know if this is easy to do, but if people are impatient like me, /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif they probably type the words they're looking for in the search box, click "submit" and get nothing. It took me a few tries before I realized the reason I got nothing on searches like "NP203 oil": the default choices are "Entire Phrase" and "Newer than 1 week". I don't know what the defaults are when you just use the little box on the forum screen (versus clicking on "Search" at the top of the screen first), but they seem to be the same?

    I suggest (if it's doable) to change the default options to "And" and "All Posts". Maybe then lazy/impatient/inexperienced people like me will get more results on their first try, instead of posting "What size tires..."

    Just a thought...

    cheers,
    Kevin

    Like it would kill ya to spend 5 more seconds to expand the search parameters. /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
