Default Helping to Search

I have a question for the mods, and forgive me for posting it here, because I'm not sure where else to go with it.

I had a question about the Webkinz Studio. My son really wants to try this, but we keep getting an error message.

So I came here to WI to see if I could find any posts about this error message. I typed in "Webkinz Studio" in the search box, but I got mostly threads for GE lists. No info on the error message.

So I decide to start a new thread. I type in my title "Webkinz Stuido?" and then it pops up with 5 threads that have been closed about the subject, and I find my answer. Kind of, anyway.

Does that mean when someone does a search for something in a closed thread that the results won't appear in a forum search ever?

I would like to know about the Studio too. My child purchased it a while back and when she tried to use it was not allowed. Looks like a lot of money wasted. Webkinz should not have it in the W shop if it can not be used. We have not been able to get any answers either.

We feel like this little guy.

My3dragonflies, closed threads do show up in the Searches. However, since the Search results are generally sorted by date, the ones in the Gift Exchange sometimes just crowd out the others.

Besides using the approach you did (with starting a new thread), there's two other simple ways around this
1) Use the forum’s Advanced Search. Then you can limit which subforums are included in the search. I did this, searching only the General Discussion/Chat and found two pages of posts with Studio in the title.
Specifically, in the Forum Advanced Search, use
Key word(s): studio
Search Titles only (rather than Search Entire Post)
Then down below, in Search Options, scroll down and just choose General Discussion/Chat (rather than the default of “Search All Open Forums”).
Here’s the first few links that come up using this method (the first two of which are still open, by the way!)

2) Alternatively, use Google. Since the Gift Exchange is not public, those results won’t show on Google. To limit the results to just those on Webkinzinsider, either
use Advanced Search on Google and type in webkinsider.com in the “Domain”
–or–
just type in
"webkinz studio" site:webkinzinsider.com
in the Google search bar to look only at the ones on webkinzinsider. : )

Ah! Thank you! I wasn't aware there was an advanced search here...that helps a lot.
