Default Answered: WI Search

Hi, is there a way in the WI Search to look for something word for word? I tried adding " ", but it only searched two of the "keywords".

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks!

Two ways:

1) Search for : "Dancing With the Stars"

or

2) Search for: +dancing +stars

Just like any other search engine.

hmm. I don't know. Were you using the search in the wiki or just a general search?

No, you can only search for keywords. But if you type it in word for word then the closet thing to what you typed will come up first. Also, if you find a thread that you want to come back to over and over then you can subscribe to it and reach it easily. I hope I was helpful.

Lets say I was trying to find a club about "Dancing with the Stars". I go to type it in the search, and then it searches for: "dancing", "stars". There are a ton of threads with either the word dancing or star in it, and it would take forever to go through the 50 pages of results just looking for one thread

That was the one I was using

I don't know fully, but...
Although I do have the same problem as you sometimes, I search "Banana hammock" and get anything with Banana in it... ...
I don't know if this answers anything, but here's something Justin posted:

Does it work differently if you choose "advanced search" or search within a forum?

It would first bring up the closest thread (like I said before). But, if there is no Dancing with the stars thread the obviously there would come up with nothing. Good Luck though.

Another great way is to look at your past posts or threads if you posted on the thread or if it's yours. But it might take longer than to try searching on it. Depending on how much you post a day and how long it's been since you posted on the thread.
