Search feature is inefficient


#1

Hello

I try to search the forum before posting, unfortunately the search function in this forum is not context sensitive.

For ex: I search for impedance.

You can try it out - not one of the topic listed is based on the word impedance or has any relation to it.

But it is a regular expression search which is producing results based on the match imp* hence results displayed are for keywords important, imperial, import etc

Just a thought for preventing repeated questions being asked.

Use the ‘search with Google’ option when you search for stuff that doesn’t work is the only workaround we found…

Just use quotes around the search term. “impedance” works perfectly.
