Yeah, it does have less posts than this forum. Problem is, ntfu2 has only been up for a little over 7 months, as opposed to 7 years like tds has been.

Now guess how many of those 6,897 members are dues paid members. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] (hint - a LOT). But enough boasting.

As BratMan said, vBulletin can be set up to search as little as one letter in the vB options under Search Options. Additionally, vB supports Wildcards. I don't know if ubb does, never tried it.

And as he further said, "You've stated before you like UBB - which is fine, your site, your choice. It's just innaccurate to suggest that choice doesn't play a large part in the search problems that are routinely reported here. ", I agree with him.

Re: Search feature...or lack of???

We have over 3 million posts if you include our archives [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]. Also, we are now over 9 years old!

UBB is a choice for sure. I have installed every major forum software out there over the years, I still prefer UBB and the support I get from Infopop though.
