Search Function not working?
« on: January 20, 2015, 03:37:04 AM »
Hi!

So I've recently been searching for various threads but I cannot seem to find them via the search function. Even if I enter the exact title of a thread. I think this has always been an issue, I just never used it much. But now there are so many threads around that having that work would help a lot.
If you have some free time, maybe you could take a look?

Best,

Hello Super Hero Member!  ;D

The search function on the forum is not great. However, here is the trick... you have to be in the right place to search. If you want to search the entire forum, be at the Start Page. If you only want to search a specific board, be inside that specific board, for example, the Open Flourish board.

Also, the less, but more specific, words you use, the better. So, for example, if you are looking for the rap thread and remember the title, type, "rap diss" instead of "rap diss calligraphy thread" because it may not be in the right order or you may only type "dis." It has to be exact.

See if that helps.  ;)
