I know it can be a pain searching but you can narrow down the chances of too many posts to look through.


Search for Keywords:

You can use AND to define words which must be in the results, OR to define words which may be in the result and NOT to define words which should not be in the result. Use * as a wildcard for partial matches.


To use the AND feature: If you just type AND Nokia [you can type any word after the AND the word Nokia should be in all the topic or post results.


Using OR is useful if you're not sure of the spelling of a word. This should work like this: phones AND Nokier OR Nokia. Similarly if you want: phones OR mobiles


Using the NOT , try a few combinations: phones AND Nokia OR Samsung NOT Motorola.


Using the wildcard * star within a word you are searching for, such as Bar* , brings up only the posts containing the word or partial word: Bar in the whole topic and body of posts. In this case, the words: Bar gain , Bar t, Bar tender, Bar bara, Bar k... and so on, should show up.


You must remember to look at the drop down lists and search option check boxes on the search page, then select the appropriate option before submitting the search.


Search for Author:
Use * as a wildcard , such as: ray* for partial matches will find ray man


It only takes a few seconds to make a quick search. If you type in one word which could be something like: dog all the dog related posts should show up, such as: dog and cat food. Even posts with the word in the subject matter of the post show up, not just the topic title.

It sounds complicated, but if you have a practice for a few searches, using all the options in different ways, you'll soon get the hang of it.
