Is it possible for search to ignore users signatures.

With so many members posting their hardware setup on their truck, it returns many false positives when executing a search, almost to point of making search useless as it'll bring up 100's if not 1000's of non-relevant posts.

ie.

I do a search for Rock Ram or Rubber Duck Brushguard or Predator raptorque and it will pick up 100's of posts of users with those items listed in their signature.

Sorry, no. Signatures become part of messages/posts. My only suggestion is to narrow your searches as much as possible.

I have searched the modifications database for this forum software and there is no mod that will do this. It would require some serious software engineering, and it appears that none of the mod wizards associated with this forum software, and there are some excellent ones, has accomplished it. I am not a software engineer, so I cannot say with any certainty whether or not it is even technically possible. If I were to hazard a guess, it might not be possible to separate the signature from a message.
