Ok, about as expected then? I would imagine that’s at least 50% on members using an Apple product then?

I have noticed that for some searches through the built in search box, it’s necessary to add “XJ40” as a key word still, otherwise no relevant results come up. Is there anyway to automate this, so that the google generated search engine only searches this forum, rather than the whole internet?

Also, I know it’s been mentioned before. Any progress with getting (email) notifications for PM’s? It used to work many years ago, but stopped after one if the many updates/ upgrades over the years.

No we cant get the email notifications to do with firewall and security on the hosting server will not allow email accounts so cant fix that sorry.
google search as the name states searched the whole internet but if you put xj40 first then it will find XJ40 site posts first, I will see if i can tweek the search engine

Ok. Thanks for confirming. It’s a shame though.the system works OK for regular visitors to the site, who will likely see the little “1” symbol next to the message icon. But trying to contact infrequent visitors, it’s no good. Or maybe they see the message months later, and the message then is not relevant then.

The search engine used to work without entering XJ40, so I assumed there was a something needed tweaking to bring that back?
