    In an effort to improve our service to the UO Community we have implemented a google custom search to http://uo.stratics.com. We hope you will find it useful.

    Better searching is a great help, thank you!
     
  3. This is good to know. Hate to be the one to say it but the old search function just plain sucked.

    The old search did suck.
    Thanks for the new one! This will make it much easier.

    I knew it, I just didn't have the knowledge to fix it. Luckily for me I've got a great team and one of them did know. :)

    Something is still not quite right with it.
    If I type in Mysticism, I get everything but that list of mysticism spells that I'm actually looking for (like how uoguide does it).
    Otherwise, I have to do it the old way of looking down the main page, then opening up the + on the skills, and click on mysticism.
    Well, it's getting there.

    Ooph, I type in Rising Colossus (which is what I'm really looking for) and it comes up blank.
    Maybe Stratics isn't geared towards keywords?

    typing in simply 'rising' gives me three pages of Stratics hits, so I'm guessing there's no info on the 'rising colossus' yet

    There is info under the Mysticism page but I don't know why Rising Colossus isn't being grabbed from the search bar.

    I appreciate Stratics trying to be more user friendly. A lot of times I try to guide noobs to Stratics, but they have a really hard time finding stuff. This is one thing that Stratics should excel at.

    I'm sorry, I've not been able to add all the SA info yet, there's rather a lot of it, I and the other volunteers, kinda wanted to actually play the game too.

    There's an easier way to search the forums or stratics in general. Say you're looking for info on mysticism. You go to your google search bar on the top of your web browser and type in the following - "mysticism" site:http://vboards.stratics.com and you will get all of the posts with the keyword mysticism. You could also use this for the regular stratics site - "rising colossus" site:http://uo.stratics.com that simple! Have fun!

    it will take a while to get it all logged, Petra, and really no sense in rushing since things will take a bit to settle down to done, right?

    yup. I've started to collate Tina's info on minispawns, but the page has got lots of holes in it that I still need to plug. It hasn't even got the heading and acknowledgement on yet!
