I've recently been searching thru some of the old topics on here looking for a specific post from about 18 months ago...and so far to no avail.

So,my question is... how simple would it be to add a "search" box facility into the site so that older "topics" could be found more easily...?

Oooh, I do this quite a lot.  If I have a question, I try to search the history for an answer before making a potentially repetitive post.  But I do find myslef second-guessing the posting content.  But I know it can be much more complicated than simple people like me often realise.

We do already have a search facility, on the Forum Home page (button in top right corner), that searches through all the topics on the database.  Are you looking for a search facility that does something else?

Hi John.  I do use the search but I got the impression it searches title only, so I'm reliant on people using a relevant title.  I didn't know if it was possible to also search content, or is this already happens and shows up in the relevancy score?

John,
Glad you pointed that out because I didn't realise it was there, but yes as Cat says, I'm more enquiring if its possible to search 'content' as opposed to topic titles.
A while back somebody posted a link somewhere within a topic and I'm looking for that particular link but cannot find it.
Thanks

Hi everyone,

You'll be pleased to hear that we have just implemented a new facility to search the contents of Forum Posts as well as Topic titles.  This is a new option on the search page - click Search the Forum from the Forum Home page and then select Topic Posts to search through the contents of Posts.

John

Thanx John,
It works a treat, and I found what I was looking for.
