Search function needs fixed

  • Gonna keep this simple; short--sweet--to the point. The search system for this website blows, I type in something and it bring up either zero results or only a couple, usually not what I'm looking for.
    Good example. I searched not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 different searches that should've brought this specific mod up and NONE of them did. "Vapid", "Sadler", "Retro", and "Vanilla", none of those searches brought up the Vapid Sadler Retro...Literally the name of the mod on the website and it can't find it? Another example, been trying to re-find the Vigero Rumbler mod, can't find it without diving through 26 pages of "Vanilla-edit" cause thats the only way I can get it to appear at all...

    I have no idea why ya'll search funtion sucks so badly and can't find anything I look up, would really appreciate a new search engine being implemented...I doubt I'm the only one who has an issue with this jank, not-working search engine.

    P.S. I am fully aware this isn't just some "Oh fix a number in the code" and its fixed kinda issue, as its a deeply rooted system within the site...but if it don't work it don't work, I'm guessing it ONLY searches the tags, so if the mod author doesn't put in the right tags it can't be found...but when its literally the TITLE of the mod and it can't find it, thats an issue...


    It sounds like it's related to this bug: https://forums.gta5-mods.com/topic/16796/search-engine-doesn-t-see-my-mod-missing-tag

    If files are missing from the search, please link them here or report them to the moderators and we can get them fixed so it doesn't happen again for that file and others don't suffer from the same issue.

    Apologies for the inconvenience.

  • If I linked each file we'd be here all day. I'll link a couple but the whole issue is they are hard to find, so kinda makes them...well, hard to find lol.
    Sadler Retro
    Vigero Rumbler

    Had to go through 10 pages of stuff just to find those two. Only search I can get them to show up on is "Vanilla-edit", which includes basically any lore-friendly car on the site--26 pages of 'em. Lol. Lot to sort through.
    Just saying, its happening for like 80-90% of the stuff. I went through looking up each brand of GTA car yesterday and most don't show up.
