RegisterLogin is here - Tesla Motors forum searching!

Thanks to the suggestion of Tharasix, and with the utmost respect to the most honorable @Volker.Berlin I give you

Not too pretty, but it works.

I can tweak it to add subforum searches as well if you want.



Denying Manmade global climate change. Keep the strawmen for private enjoyment, please.

At last, I have my very own VB desktop icon.

Just think of all the cross-post references and corrections VB can do with this tool … I love it :)

Thx volker!

Sad that the digital ecosystem of an innovative company like tesla is a 2 out of 10 at best. I can appreciate that there is a 3rd party doing forum search on behalf of tesla but thats just plain sad. Search isnt the only cripple on this site. Tesla's user engagement is pretty weak. How about a personlized newsletter or targeted content. I hope Tesla makes some substantial upgrades in this area soon.

Sorry to be doom and gloom but being a consultant in content orchistration and digital markeing in general, its just painful to see companies a fraction of the size of tesla have a substantially higher level of digital maturity.

The 'Bulletin Board' is the engagement effort recently added.

Tesla's user engagement is pretty weak

At least there is user engagement. Most major car makers don't have any, and even if they have they wont get direct posts from major players into company like we have.

I agree that this forum could benefit from total rewrite (or usage of some real forum software). This isn't very high in priorities, it works and it probably is enough for them for now.

Doh, probably missed / in closing tag again (I did write closing tag, I'm sure about that). should have been ...there is user..

Hello? this time I didn't forget the closing tag.

Lets try this text should be underlined, and this not.

I think you are misunderstanding what user engagement means regarding a website. Its not just the users engaging other users (social media), its the website engaging me. In other words, its shouldn't take me 8+ clicks to to find content when tesla already has explicit data and could also track implicit data to provide a better user experience. With all the profile info on my saved model s build combined with click behavior, I should have content served up on a platter instead of having to dig around or every time I click on forums it always bring me back to the my tesla page. Its Poor nav. How about suggested posts I may be interested in. Faceted Search? This type of technology is not expensive.

BTW I do think its great that Tesla's employees and leaders write on here but lets get some better tools in here. Not just for the fanatics like us but for those on the cusp of buying or just read about Tesla and came to the site to learn more. There is a lot of education and validation going on about Tesla...its should be easier.

In searching/digging situations like that I utilize the FF (Tab Mix add-on?) context menu option to "duplicate tab" and kill that tab when done. A slightly less inconvenient workaround.

IAC, UR certainly right that personalization is very primitive here (not that such things can't be overdone!).

@mocaptain, I think you got me wrong. I agree that site could be quite a bit better, but at least they have info here relatively easily accessible, and also there is a lot of info here. Look at the some of the other manufacturer sites, most of them are way way worse. For one almost none of them has any blog or forum at all.

Which part of the site takes you 8+ clicks? I find most with two (actually one, one to hover my mouse over the right menu selection and one to click the one I want).

bump - for those that haven't heard of yet

Sure miss Volker.Berlin around here!

@Captain - I noticed he posted over at TMC on the TeslaRoadTrip thread. Maybe he'll come back when European deliveries start...



Another bump to keep it up top.

Great stuff for sure nick!

Bump it up.

Time for a bump.

bump (for those new to the forum)

By the way, has anyone seen nickjhowe?



@DouglasR - I was on vacation in Morocco for 10 days. Made it back safely. Thanks for noticing I was gone.


Try a search for "bump". ;)
