    searching hint

    Cheers again :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Also note that when on HUKD you can use + and - to include or exclude terms in the search boxes. (just thought I'd add that as a search hint)

    And even though the quick search isn't always great for results I usually find the Advanced Search works well.

    See the help thread in my sig for help on optimising your searches on HUKD...

    Is it just me, or should searching not be that complicated that a 'guide' needs to be made in order for people to use it?

    Kelly, there's always been a guide. Searching is not difficult, but searching and optimising your search to save you time is something that not everyone knows how to do. Even on the likes of google.

    I don't think it's that complicated. Its just like using google or anything if you want to use the advanced features you need to find out how they work. For example the site: command for google that diodorus-siculus uses in his tip is not something anyone would know how to use on google unless they read the google guide.

    LOL ditto ^^ !
