Odd response from forum search box

Postby Michael Z Freeman » Wed Sep 26, 2012 10:54 am

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: sound linux linux-sound-base.


Made me laugh. Maybe the forum software has a sense of humour ? Looks like this could do with some adjustment unless there's some reason it is like that (can't think of one).

linux is indeed too common, as this is "linux-musicians" forum.
On a similar note, searching for "kxstudio" gives the same message :D

Same problem with 'ardour'.

What is the point of excluding the most useful search terms?

another response I get quite frequently

Sorry but you cannot use search at this time. Please try again in a few minutes.


I get it a lot when I'm flipping through search result pages and sometimes when I search anything in general.

Dear lazyweb,

This behavior is indeed annoying and there should be no need to restrict search so heavily now that we're on the new hosting.

However, where do I find this option in the phpBB administration?

I second that "annoying". More than that actually. As it is, the search feature is crippled because of this.

If I have a question that is specific to a program such as Rosegarden, I should be able to search all relevant posts that contain the word "rosegarden" . As it is, "rosegarden" gets ignored and I am left to manually go through all of the irrelevant results that have nothing to do with Rosegarden.

If an admin could be so kind to consider:
If this works from a list, that list shouldn't include proper nouns. If it's dynamic, then please consider making an adjustment: http://phpbbandbbcodes.com/viewtopic.php?t=194

Perhaps this could help?

Thanks for finding this option. I've disabled the feature.
