    Getting the Most Out of the Search Function

    Post by genkicoll on Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:40 am

    Well we have a search function now, but it's not the best in the world

    From my experimenting, quote marks make no difference. Typing in "Mystery Stories" brought up only Mystery. Further experimenting shows that it will only bring up the first word you type. A bit of a pain, but here's the way to get the most out of what we have:

    First, the button marked "Inside" means inside this forum, and the Google button will (obviously) search the 'net via Google.

    Under "Display results as" are two options:

    * Posts will search the content of the forum (inside the posts)

    * Topics will search the TITLES of the topics only.

    So, if you're looking for something, search for the most unusual word to make it more likely to find what you're looking for.

    The game indexes should be of great help for finding game topics, but for anything else you're looking for, these tips should help Smile
