Default Search Issues

I did a search for threads that had "Advance" in it, wanting to see if I missed any pertinent threads about this product. Maybe I just don't know the secret but I had a hard time finding one substantial thread on it. Most only had very minimal mention of the product.

I don't understand why it's difficult to do a specific search for a thread on a particular product.

Click on the drop down button on the search tab, choose advance. Click on the drop down button right below the text box where you would enter a keyword. Choose titles only, then type in Advance and you should get better results.

TJ,

simple answer, vBulletin search engines suck. I've NEVER had luck with it. And it's NOT just PT, it's all vBulletin forums I've used.

Thanks. Yes a title search would work much better.

And Gabe, good call. I thought about that. Probably is easier to google it than use the in house search function, which is kinda weird but...

Gabe, I've seen an option on some forums to use google as the search engine, and it worked really well.

I do not see that option on PT. These new meds are making me a little foggier

How do you use google to search PT ?

Highlight the word and windows automatically puts it in google for me, maybe because I have the dreaded google toolbar up there.

I thought that was a windows thing. Although I do have google as my default search engine. When I right click on a word I also have the "search with" option, and it shows me all the search engines I've put into the quick search bar.

I wanted to put this in the Serving my penance... Thread but thought it was inappropriate, however Bill was kind enough to open the door for me
