Here is a temporary fix, untill the forum gets it's own search function back...


Using www.google.com (http://www.google.com), add site:forums.ubi.com to your searchwords, and google will only find pages from this forum...


this is what it looks like when I search these forums for 'force feedback':

Yeah, I've had to use this at another forum I post at. One thing you might want to note is that Google's index of a lot of forums is at the very least a few days behind (I haven't actually tested to see how far) so if it's a recent thread you're looking for it may not work out for you.

Still better than nothing though.

The 3rd link in my example picture is my own post on force feedback from three days ago...

So I emagine any post older then two days will shopw up via google...

Google has an odd caching system--sometimes inconsistent and behind by a few days, as pointed out... But hey, it's not their forum, and right now it's working a lot better than the UBI search...

This is better than nothing.

But it doesn't help much if you want to search 1 forum for some generic word like Radio or Music.
