    Default Search bar is useless!

    I dont know if its just me or what, but i finally decided to use the search bar/button and typed in MPG and the page said there were no matches!!! WTF

    I know full welll there are various pages relating to MPG on this forum, but yet it tells me there arent any!??!

    Been working for me today! Maybe it sensed you're thinking about driving your car more economically and tried to put a stop to the idea

    Thats because the search term is to short. Think its set to atleast 4 letters.

    Changed minimum character limit to 2, added MPG to the list of words be included despite character limit.

    You can also use * Eg: 'bu*' matches 'bug' and '*bu*' matches 'vBulletin

    Hope so

    Another great thing is at the bottom of the page of a thread (if not on tapa) The forum will list Similar threads to the one you are viewing.

    Tapa is good for browsing and keeping up to date, I prefer using it to upload photo's to. No hosting needed for full size images (I have the full version though)

    I tend to use tapatalk all the time
    That's why you get a quick response to questions

    I hate it when people use tapatalk to upload pics as I use a laptop. When I click on the pictures it opens a crappy small photo on a different tab
