    I dont see why after conducting a search there is not a sort function by clicking the column headers..

    I may just be stoned but I swear I have seen this on other Vbulletin forums.

    You'll get much better results from the search if you choose "order by relevancy".

    For some reason, this is not selected by default on this forum.

    Both valid points with useful advice but,I don't see why we can't have better search functions on this site. Seen DP lately? They modded the hell out of that thing.

    Why not just implement a Google search bar? I know I've seen it on other sites. Basically it just searches Google and automatically prefaces your query with
    Code:
    site:blackhatworld.com
    . Kinda like what HoneyBird said, but just implemented automatically.
