The forum search is pared down a wee bit tight, can it be fixed? For instance search for 'Lambda errors' throws out the term 'Lambda'. Its very difficult to get specific on search terms when 90% of them get thrown out for being too common, too short etc.

Agreed. This is painful.

Bump on this. I find the forum search restrictions maddening. :x
Can't someone turn this off? It can't possibly serve any useful purpose.

What I'm trying to do is save a phone call to a MoTeC engineer, so he can have time to work on something else. Today, he gets a phone call instead.

Respectfully,

Plus an issue resolved on a forum, is there for all to see and learn from it. Really, there doesnt seem to be enough response from Motec on a lot of queries.

It isnt a busy forum in the first place either, so shouldnt be too hard.

For me the coping strategy is Google.com and adding site:www.motec.com/forum to the search terms.

I know this is an old thread, but I'm going to bump it anyway because this is still an issue. How are 'ignition' and 'lambda' not searchable terms? It's not like there are hundreds of thousands of posts in each of the subforums to search through.

Hi All,

This is the first time that I have seen this topic, I'll look into it and see what can be done.
