Since the powers that be changed the website software, our once powerful search no longer works. Here is how to do a search that works.

Say you want to search on adjusting the soft close pump. Go to Google search and enter:
"W140 soft close pump adjust site:benzworld.org"

Hit search, and you will get good results.

Be sure NOT to have any spaces in the "site:benzworld.org" portion of the search term.

It's really fast, and you don't have to wait 30 seconds between searches.

BTW, this works on any website. A lot of forum software has bad search capabilities, so this can make up for it.

Hell no, we won't go!

Oh well, it's sort of been the trend with tech for a while now: look and feel have taken a higher priority over functionality and reliability... Kinda...

I have saved this thread as a favorite. The old search always brought up a bunch of fluff. This works much better!!!!

Apparently someone listens and now the ADVANCED SEARCH on BW is back:

Advanced Search Filters


Thank you for all the feedback and insights on how you are using or want to use search within your community. We have introduced advanced search filters by recency, by forum and by thread. As we need to index additional content within the site for our AI powered search algorithm (www.vespa.ai ), this may take a few days to display on the site. We are looking forward to your feedback and thank you for your patience!


If you are new to using Advanced Search filters, there is a “How To” guide listed below.


Thanks,


Your Community Support Team

How To Access Advanced Search

If you have already entered your search words in the search bar but want to narrow down your results or choose to search only certain forum selections, click on “Advanced Search”.





This will allow you to choose to search titles only, add the member username who posted it or even select a specific forum to search from the scroll menu within search in forums.





If you prefer to go directly to advanced search, you can access it under the 3 vertical dots at the top right-hand corner of the community.
