    Advanced Search??? LOL

    sponsored links


    ***Advertisments***
    Well... how advanced is it if it won't recognize a combination of words?

    ......"program change" doesn't work.
    ......program+change doesn't work.

    So I have to sort thru 1000 posts looking for this combination my self?

    What am I missing here? ( other than lameness is the default )

    TIA

    works for me. Did you try changing the post dates I set it to "any date" "and older"


    To many posts to go through for program change

    Too many ... yes ... because it finds every post with the term "program"
    and every post with the term "change".

    That's the point. It won't allow a truely advanced search
    that groups the 2 terms as an exact phraze.

    There is also no "search within results" option.

    It also won't allow a search for the term AO.
    Too short?

    I'd suspect one of the key tools for a forum like this, other than a great bunch of users, would be the search engine.
