Quote:What use is the heading Help!,

We can change headings to help improve this - all we need is bad ones to be flagged up in reports.
I believe the search takes into account text and tags and headings. And you can sort by relevance or date.

Yeah the search does try to take into account titles, tags and content - in all situations.

However does anyone have any instances where they have searched for something and not found it - but have via google.
Searching is quite a difficult science and getting the right content back is often very difficult. So any feedback that you can give will help us get it right.

We had several members say the site search is rubbish...do any of those still feel the same? Can you now find things?

Still not great Pete TBH, stopped trying to use it ages ago. Just had a go, what's the difference between "all tags" and "any tags" they seem to give the same results.

I tend now to go to Google put in ephotozine, then what I want to find. It tends to be much more accurate, but unfortunately for EPZ throws in competitive sites, found some great work that way, but I guess that's not what you want to hear (it's how I found 500px)

You're talking about the gallery search specifically then?
Can you give us an example of a search word that doesn't work on epz and does on google. I'll have to check what all and any means. I used to know but it's been so long since I needed to use that I forgot. I just use the main search and it works fine.

I cannot see anywhere that I can search from......
The above page looks familiar - I think it appeared on here about 2 years ago before all the upgrades !!
The photographic Galleries page I get is.....

And there's me thinking a magnifying glass is to magnify things.....Wink

Looks like there would be room on that bar for a cryptic thing...maybe...search. Tongue

Cheers.......now I know.
