I'd like to ask Alex if it would be possible to improve the search facility.

You kindly added 'All the forum' and 'All areas' a while back, but even this has shortcomings.

To give an example, I searched for Brochacolor in All Areas, All the forum, and La Marina. None of these searches produced any results.

I then did a Google search, confining the search to this forum, and got seven results.

I suggest you repeat what I did and see if you get the same results.

In Google enter:

brochacolor site:costablancaforum.com

Thanks in advance.

To give another example, someone asked a question about non-resident tax, so I searched all the forum for 210. This didn't produce any results at all, but a Google search produced 90 results.

Good post Jim

This seems to be the same on most forums so new people have difficulty in locating old topics which in turn leads to the same questions being asked over and frustrates people that would genuinely like to help others.
