Forum Searching - How to Optimize your Search for Topics
I recently recall a post where someone wrote that the search function built into our software leaves much to be desired.
The recent "You Know You're a Retriever Person When..." thread. got me searching and I had trouble. I knew that a similar thread existed elsewhere. But I could not find it.
Google has an advanced search that is very cool. I know others have posted such a link in the past, but I could not find it through RTF's search function. I'd suggest you guys give this a try. It seems to work much better.
Go here: Google Advanced Search Page Or this URL: http://www.google.com/advanced_search
In the top field, you will see a space to input whatever search items or words you like. OR
In the 2nd field down, you seen a space to put an exact quote in quotation marks. For my test, I used "You know you're a".
The key is to then scroll down to the "site or domain" thread and enter: http://www.retrievertraining.net/forums/, then execute your search.
If you enter the exact phrase in the example shown above in the 2nd field, and list the RTF domain for the domain, you will find a thread from a few years ago that says something like: "You know you're a retriever person when your christmas list has (X)" ...
Here's the results page from that advanced search.
Please give it a try. It may save you some headache. Thanks Google!
