search is broke/handicapped? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
I tried to do a search on the term "PDF" to see if there were any alternative plugins that will let OW display PDF files inline. The search came up with no results. But I know the results are bogus, because I did another search on "plugin" which came up with a thread titled "Possible to enable PDF / RTF viewing in Omniweb?"

So wazzup? :confused:
I think the length of the search string just needs to be longer. Probably would be nice if this were mentioned on the results page...
FWIW, SchubertIT PDFplugin lets you view PDFs in the browser window
Troy got it. vB's search capabilities are horrible. Calling it "garbage" is probably an understatement. I think it has the worst search capabilities of anything I've ever seen in the past decade.

The work around is to do -[jibberish] so all instances of PDF that don't have an instance of characters you know aren't posted anywhere like -hjsadfjsdonviouhneanfjd
