I'm really pleased to see the number of people who are viewing search results when I check who is online. There is a wealth of information already posted, but sometimes you have to be creative with your search objects and time spans. I probably won't retire quite yet though. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Thank God for that because the only unworkable thing for me with this forum IS the search-function, I always get no results because of the time span. I tried it over and over again but I must be doing something wrong.

I've had some difficulty with the search function too.

It is not as rich in function as other search engines such as Google. It seems to disallow short search objects. The "+" apparently cannot have a space after it as required by other engines. There seems to be a 200 limit on returns which requires that you search several time spans if you use targets that are common. Yes, I too have had some difficulty, but I am not usually searching "blindly". I usually have a specific post in mind and try to remember something unique to narrow it down. BTW I posted this in this category because I didn't want to drop the raffle post out of sight and this pertained to new users. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif
