Searching Tips

Hi All,

I'm new around here, so apologies if this has been mentioned before.

I have noticed a few people having trouble with/complaining about the search function.
In my experience most forums suffer similar issues due to poor indexing capabilities and basic query engines.

What I have found works great when searching is to do it from Google - but at the end of your search term put ''

That limits Google's search of its indexes to only pages on

As a test try the following:

1. On the board search try the search term '30 pict jets' and change the From field to 'the beginning' and you will get 'No matches were found' - well I do anyway.

2. Enter the following search term in Google - '30 pict jets' and you will get plenty of results.

Hope this helps some of you when looking for some info.


PS: Trick can be used for other sites too. I search '' in the same way.
