Searching this forum isn't working

I might be the only one but I can not get search to work in this forum. If I am at the top level or in a specific topic when I search a word it always tells me the word is too common. :/

Forum search engines are hopeless. I never use them. Use google instead with a site specifier like this,
site:forum.raise3d.com common

We have already set Common search to 0.

I find this problem on here a lot too. I'm trying to find a good template for Raise ABS filament but most of those words are too common and the search returns 0 hits. Not sure what Vicky meant by setting common search to 0, but it didn't work for me again this morning when I tried searching for ABS templates.

According to the description the index should be recreated to get common words resetted.

Now "abs" can be searched, but with any search I tried nothing is found

Not sure...

The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: abs.

Either I typed it wrong ("ABS") or they changed something again...

type this into google:

abs site:forum.raise3d.com

you can then replace the term "abs" with anything else you want to search the forums for. much easier than dealing with the forum search tool.

good idea, but only if you like to get ABS filament ads the next weeks on nearly every webpage you visit.

You get ads on every site you visit anyway, why are abs ads worse than others?
