Default Forum Search

Hi all,

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to inquire about this, but since the server change, the Forum Search function has changed and no longer provides an "advanced search" function to be able to select specific forums to search in.

Has anyone played with this yet, or figured out how to look for something without searching the entire forums?

Let me know, thanks!

Default Re: Forum Search

I just tried using it, now it looks like a google search instead of the forum search...not sure if I like this change because you can't see the location of the thread you are clicking on (like if it is a ge or something...)

I noticed that last night. I was trying to search my own GE and there was no option for it. It also appeared like I was able to close it if I wanted to, but I didn't try it. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to have that feature or not.

I know, I was trying to look for items in the GE, but I can't go through pages of threads just to find one that looks like a GE. I'm a little disappointed that the new search doesn't support that capability.

That feature is actually one specific to Gift Guru's. You can now open and close your own thread whenever you want. Pretty snazzy huh?

I can't believe I never knew that. Hopefully not being able to search the forums is just temporary while they sort out all of the changes.

That's what I'm hoping. I'm sure we'll see a lot of changes over the next few weeks.

In the meantime, I guess I'll get better at skimming people's GE's!

This is a little off topic, but still related. Remember awhile back when, after typing in a new thread title, some other threads with similar titles or keywords would pop up, in an effort to cut down on the number of repetitive threads? I would love to have that option back with the new forum, too!

Oh, I remember that option! That would be very nice to have back!
