    Actually our developers have said the entire process could take several days. Days in which none of the vBulletin websites or services would be available.

    The site feedback has been read and reviewed, since we're not getting along fine, this thread is now closed to prevent further back&forth.

    I apparently know better than YOU.

    This is a poor implementation decision which CAN be corrected for a positive result.

    Just fix it already.

    ...which would be a worthwhile and valuable use of time and compute resources.

    Of course, Dilly would rather stand and watch Rome burn whilst fiddling before he'd admit it is possible (and worth the effort).

    You can force the system into a Natural Language search by using quotes around your search phrase. So instead of searching for:

    RSS Feed

    Search for:
    "RSS FEED"

    You will get results for the second entry. You can also specify wildcards such as RSS* or PHP* to search. However both of these take longer for results and wildcard searches may not be very accurate. It is better to create these on the advanced search page and set it to sort by relevancy instead of last posting date.

    That could also take days.

    A few days possibly.

    Actually it's not. It requires downtime and rebuilding all fulltext indexes.
