Help With Searching...

One of the most over looked options in the search page is the option to pull more results. In the search area under options you will find a way for this.

Note however, if you are using more than one word, the issue here is the words you are looking for may be a really standard word. Example would be "DILA Bulb Cost". Try "bulb" first then "cost", then "dila". (bulb cost dila) The more words, the worse it is based on how MySQL pulls words. (Sorry)

It looks at the first word, finds a set of results, say 1000. Then it look for the second word ONLY in that found set of 1000, now is has 200. Then it looks for the third word in that remaining 200 and might find 1 or none. Thus the issue. And also why changing the order of the words can help.

Looking in display devices only and having it set for 6000 it find 113 results for "bulb cost".

Hope this helps.
