BBS searching issue

This BBS has lots of great information. It is real nice to do a search on a topic you are interested in and find tons on info from previous discussions. There is one thing that bothers me though. You can have a signature that appends to the end of every post you make. Some people here have put descriptions of their Jeeps including mods and brand names in their signitures. Now when I do a search on BDS for example, I get every post from a person that has BDS in their signature no matter the topic of the post. This makes some searches hard. Does anyone else feel the same way or am I just a pain in the ass?

Re: BBS searching issue

You are not a pain in the ass. Those sig lines are a pain in the ass. I was just searching for "rear disc" and I got tons of posts from sig lines with the words rear disc. I would say that over 75% of the post were irrelevant to my search. I really hope this gets addressed in the new BBS software, whatever it ends up being.

Re: BBS searching issue

You're correct... it does cause difficulty in searching. Lots of the sigs on the forum have gone to JPG format... you can insert Text to a JPG and save it and use it as a signature that won't affect the search feature.

Re: BBS searching issue

I agree with you that this is a pain, and it has been discussed here before.Each time it is brought up does seem to help though because the post will ussually get at least a few people to change thier signature.

Take care of the pennies and the dollars will take care of themselves.
