    This is a seven year old thread. The options discussed aren't relevant in vBulletin 4 and have been removed.

    Each of these options are explained in the online help - just click on the ? link to the right of each one.

    So those search thresholds aren't exactly useful isn't it, if it cannot be applied to the normal search to turn up more relevant results ....

    Now I am puzzled..

    I do not understand these options.
    Those options allow you to give a higher relevance to posts / threads that were posted more recently and have a higher reply / view / rating counter, respectively. For example, if 2 posts have the same number of word matches, but one was posted more recently, then you can make that post show closer to the top of the search results by adjusting the Search Relevance Date Score option.

    I don't know what the "function" options do.

    Yes.

    Oh I see. I don't know where the regular search gets its threshold.

    Admin CP -> vBulletin Options -> Message Searching Options -> Similar Threads Relevance Threshold

    Can someone explain searching relevance options ?

    I don't get the descriptions for most of the options, and also I do not know where to set the threshold value such that any thread with a search 'value' less than this threshold is not shown when a member does a search for certain keyword(s).

    Please explain, anyone?
