Trying to search 'slow resync' from forum menu page I keep getting this!  ( http://forums.contribs.org/index.php )


404. That’s an error.

Maybe Google had a hiccup (it is a google search). Anyway, it works.

Usually I use the "search" feature you find above, in the toolbar/menubar

I never found myself confortable with google custom search

@mike_mattos

The 'site search' below gives me just your own post:

"slow resync" site:http://forums.contribs.org

Likewise, not enthusiastic about Google Custom Search, however, in general, I find inbuilt Forum searches (not just SME) to be very poor indeed.

The 'site search' above seems to give better (perhaps just different) results.

The real issue here is that we have over 260K posts. That's a massive amount of info to search through.
