you are suppose to put + and - in before the word, or something like that

I put a plus sign in front of each word, which as far as I know means the results have to include both words... I think.

Thanks all.

the + and - works!

Why doesn't this site have at least some semblance of a HELP section?

csiman ... there's a help thread in my sig if you want to read helps for tips on searching. You've not been using the search right...

Yeah and I did the samefor ages, feeling a right plonker when it was pointed out.

It really would be good Emma to get your help files on the landing page, I can't understand why it's not a priority. :thinking:

We'll get it there yet hottoshop! I'd like a proper help section yet rather than just threads.

Well how about adding it to the bottom, thus.....

Shouldn't be too hard to do it that way.

Look forward to it, I personally think it will help the site no end. Just have to make sure all the newbies are gently guided to it.

In the future would there be any way of incorporating something into the registration process to guide newcomers to the help files ?

I also just recently noticed that if you put (eg) +ghost +recon into just the standard search box to the right of the custom tab, when you get your search results back there are 2 yellow boxes on the right of the results screen that list sections & categories, so you can quickly jump from specific results in deals section to misc section etc & it's more straightforward for some searches than the advanced option (2 clicks, no scrolling etc) if it helps (& that makes sense)

Blimey! Never spotted that either. Thanks :thumbsup:

They also work together - i.e. you can choose both a forum and topic.
