Fix the forum's weak Search so we can search properly

Post by mooncaine » Sun Feb 01, 2015 1:56 am

I just got this typically unhelpful result from searching the forum: "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: SelectedTrackControl"

Since controlling tracks, and selecting them, are 2 of the most important features of Ableton Live, it's damned silly that I can't do a search containing these words. BTW, I'm searching for info about a keyboard-to-midi script for Ableton Live called (can you guess?).... SelectedTrackControl.

Guess I won't find anything here. :(

I just use Google, like this: "selectedtrackcontrol site:forum.ableton.com"

https://www.google.no/search?q=selected ... bleton.com
Please vote! Live 10's "multi" clip editing should allow selection+editing of multiple clips in one action:

(L10-SUG-0228) Multiple MIDI transpose

This site is run on PHPBB so I wouldn't expect any improvements.

You are right: that is ridiculous.
