    Default Country selection for selling/buying forum

    Is it possible to filter on country, for example, i want to see what members are selling in The Netherlands in case i need something urgently ;-)

    I just spent an hour trying to figure this one out.

    Vbulletin no longer supports full-text search, another damn thing nuked by v4, so I am unable to include meta-data like the "postbit" information like country in the search query. As a matter of fact: None of that data is cataloged anymore, at least that I can see.

    There is a concerted effort from third parties to get a full-text engine like sphinx into vbulletin but progress is slow.

    If you need something then why not post a BUYING: post.
    It's a two way street.

    that is of course another approach but i thought also of the opportunity to see what is currently availlable at a specific location, sort of marketplace like feature with a range setting/limitation.

    Makes local window shopping a bit arduous.

    I went shopping for new windows in the Red Light district in Amsterdam with Kevski and hiw wife like 2 weeks ago.
    So i knocked on a window with a nice lady behind it and asked: "What does it cost ?"
    She smiled to me and said it was only 50 euros.
    I answered: "That's not much for double glass panes"
    I didn't fail !
    I just found out 10,000 ways that didn't work.

    Sorry, I read 'Country selection' and expected to see a Kenny Rogers album review.
