Examples, guys? Screenshots? What did you search, where did you search, any other info?
When I search and select the "Exact Phrase" radio button, when I click "Search" the screen simply resets, moving the selection back over to "All Terms" and resets the search field. Basically the page just refreshes without searching.
BTW, the "Ignore Author" feature is awesome. It drastically trims down the amount of posts that have false tags on them (e.g., all girl, creampie, asian, bondage, farts) just to catch all searches. However, I see that there's a limit of 60 characters in that field. Can it be expanded so that I can ignore more authors?
So relieved this issue has finally been dealt with.
I also reported Blackcat1000's spammy posts repeatedly, since they were ruining the search function.
Some posts included hundreds of names, tags and keywords and 50 or 60 pictures. It was absurd. It didn't matter what you searched for, you would inevitably get their massive bulk posts in the results.
And you'd have to wait for their entire posts to load so that you could properly go through the results, since stopping the page loading early would mean you also stopped all other results loading too. And usually what you were after would be bumped three or four pages down the results thanks to these massive spam posts that took up an entire page of results.
It was ruining this site and I'm grateful that it's finally been resolved.
While it's been somewhat dealt with, I still believe it is not being fully utilized due to the existing character limit in the field. For example, below is my current list of authors who inaccurately caption (tag) their posts:
PornBB, we really need to beef up the search functions, at least to match what other sites have. A user should be able to include & exclude terms (i.e. search "interracial" but exclude anything with "dp"), look for terms/phrases directly ("petite teen" vs. "teen" "petite"), and select whether to include stem words in the search results (search "boob" or search for boob, which would return also boobs, booby, boobie, boobies, etc...)
