Searching in this forum

My personal experience is that the search function in this forum is very limited. Most of the time I find the right forum post rather when I go back to Google and search there.
Does anyone have any idea what the technological problem is? Would something like "tagging" be useful?
What specifically are you having problems with? I use the search quite regularly to find things for people. It's not google, but it's pretty usable for a keyword search.

while searching with google if you enter site:forum.duet3d.com it limits the results to this site

@Phaedrux It's just that often I am not finding what I am searchingt for.
Probably I am using the wrong search terms, but to give you example search for term like,
"5v power supply problem"
"Changing ports of DWS"
and 95% of the posts which will be shown are not really correlated to what I am searching for.
I would suggest using fewer words.
"5v power supply problem" is pretty vague. those 4 terms will occur many many times in many unrelated threads. Best to find a specific term that is more unique to the situation.
"DWC ports" might be a better search term. "changing" is a superfluous word that will occur too often in unrelated posts.
Instead of wiring neopixel, just the word neopixel will likely result in more specific results.
We've all gotten used to the contextual awareness of google to find what we want, but generally keyword search outside of google is going to require a bit of search term awareness.
If you want the power of google to search the forum, do as Veti suggests.
