The search function for the software that runs this board is "OK" but not great. It's not this site. It's the core application that this site and so many others use. There's a lot to do with it. Indexing takes storage and system resources, so often search configurations are setup so that as an example you can't search using a word less than 4 characters long, etc.
I find that the search here works about as well as at any other site using the same vBulletin software.
