The old search worked a litttle smoother and somewhat faster!
Also, the search comes up in no order that I can discern, dates are all over the map, not sure if there is a field to sort...
I'd love to search classifieds for just what I am looking for, say Gretsch, I can specify titles only, would be nice to sort by date posted. Is that feature there and I'm just not seeing it?
The new search feature is actually way more powerful than the old one. I'll illustrate with a couple of screenshots how to do the search you mentioned. First, click on the search window, then click "more":
That will take you to the "Advanced Search" screen. From there, just check off the criteria you want: keyword, forum, most recent, etc.:
Once you get used to it, most people find the search engine much better than the old one.
Do what Chris said FYI, search results are sorted by "recency weighted relevancy". In other words, results are sorted by relevancy (how closely terms match, how often they're used, if they're in the thread title, etc etc etc), with bonus points given to content posted in the last year.
That was EXACTLY what I needed.
It took me a minute to find how to do advanced searches at first. IMO the "More" button should say something more descriptive, like "advanced searches" or "more features" or something. No matter. Once you find it, you discover that it's a really nice search engine.
