Is there way to add certain words to the search engine? I've noticed a couple of topics I've tried to search before won't give any results, maybe because they're too short? The one I'm primarily thinking about is "AT Pro."
That machine gets a ton of threads/posts, but if you look it up in a search, you get nothing. I remember back when I was first considering buying mine, it took forever reading everything on it because I wasn't able to search for it.
Just curious, thanks!

As you said, probably to short a search term, try adding "Detector" at the end.

The VBulletin software search engine is ... awful?

Let the power of Google do the search for you. Go to Google and in the search box type {"AT Pro" site:metaldetectingforum.com} (leave out the braces at the ends).

I noticed that if you mistype and enter "atpro" into the search you get much better results...

Just do not put in the space like AT Pro instead type ATPro, or atpro it will find however it shows up in someone post.
