    I've made some major changes to how the forum search engine works, which should hopefully result in much faster and improved results when using the search box. It was previously quite slow and not particularly clever!

    Please do let me know if you spot any bugs or problems with the site, as there was an issue earlier today which prevented new posts being made for a while. This was related to a problem rolling the new search index out. I'm sorry if anyone tried to make a post and had it give you an error.

    Just tried Search Forums and yes it does seem to work very quickly and accurately. :thumb:
