Maybe I am doing something wrong, but I was looking for any discussion/comments regarding CIBC PPS Balanced Growth fund.
I got hundreds 'hits' where at least one word appeared but it has nothing to do with my search request?
Thus, currently, I find search function on this site completely useless.

I don't get many hits at all using any of the words. You are using "Advanced Search" just above the Home button?

Not Google Custom Search at the top of the page just below Savers Roundup... which is a web search (not forum search).

I doubt there is discussion of particular Managed Portfolios, or even mutual funds here.

The issue of crappy search has come up before. And there are 2 search forms, so it is a bit confusing. The forum search is a primitive database search that I don't personally use. I've now hidden the forum search and kept the Google search (which is still limited to this site).

Please write your comments in the forum.
