Is it just my computer or does the Search function really not work very well? (Or am I not using it properly? - always a possibility.)

I was testing it out on my own material (naturally) and when I did a story search by title for "Teaching Carol" it didn't show up at all, even when I went into the category list and eliminated everything but the BDSM category, which is the one it was submitted under. Shouldn't it be at the top of the list when the title search is that specific?

And when I searched by author name (Zen Mackie) I discovered that, for example, "Authors With Username's Beginning With Z" doesn't just list names beginning with 'Z', it lists every author name that has a 'Z' in it anywhere. Wouldn't it be better to be able to type in a specific author's name and have it come up?

If I'm doing something wrong or it's some problem with my computer, that's one thing. But if this is really how the Search function is operating it seems as though it could be refined somewhat so that readers could find what they're looking for more easily.

Really like the site though - it's a wonderful place for like-minded folks to share their creativity.

Hi Zen
I shall investigate this issue and let you know, it seems your stories are not in the search index.
Thanks
