Search Feature (Read 375 times)


Beware, batbear...

    Why is the search feature so crappy, or (more likely) what am I doing that is getting such crappy results from the search feature?

     

    I searched for "The Walking Dead" because of the TV series thread that was going a couple of weeks ago.  I got a bunch of randomness. 

     

    What am I doing wrong?

      I have the exact same problem. I will search for the exact title of a thread and it doesn't show up.

        Use the quick search. You hold down the Option key and the Windows key simultaneously, and push S for search.

        It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

          Try using double quotes in your search to for exact phrase.  

           

          Search key: The Walking Dead

          The search feature will search the database for all words with the and walking and dead.  The chances of having those three words in a thread is highly likely.  

           

          Search key: "The Walking Dead"

          The search feature will now search the database for the pattern found between the double quotes in all threads.

          Search key: AMC "The Walking Dead"

          This time the search will search the database for all threads with AMC and the phrase The Walking Dead.

          Search key: "The Walking Dead" "end of the series"

          You can also do multiple phrases.
