I LOVE the content but the search engine is practically useless

I'd been a user on esword-users for a a year or so when it dissolved

 

I didn't bother getting involved here for a while but now I am.

 

I like the way you do things here generally but have a few questions/ points

 

a) you insist on sticking to YOUR rules

               3. You agree you will not extract the text from from or reverse engineer the files for any reason.

    if the owner of that material makes it fully free and available to all without restriction - are you really adding a restriction? and you have a typo (from from) :)

 

B) your search engine is an issue that I accidentally overcame having been redirected back to biblesupport.com from another site

 

   - search for christadelphian = nothing

   - search for Christadelphian = nothing

   - search for brian armour = nothing

   - search for Brian Armour = MANY results related to posts by the guy that have Christadelphian stated clearly within the text of the post (not the resource)

 

Why is capitalisation an issue and how come the search engine (at least in this case) doesn't go much further than author :(

Capitalization inconsistentency on a search? I don't see that? Let me attach screenshots showing your search terms and the results I see:

I see though from your example that it can work and is working for you.

 

That is weird - I just tried it again and it got weirder. I still have it saying no matches if no caps (brian armour). But if capitalised (Brian Armour) it matches. Then if I try no caps - it works.

 

How odd. Must be something in my browser I have weirdly setup.

 

It's clearly an issue at my end - so apologies for pointing the finger to your website. I've just not experienced it elsewhere before.
