Forum Searches


Recommended Posts

Ok, I will be the first to admit that I may be just completely glazing over it but how do I change performing a search to list the post and not the thread? I looked at the General Forum usage and how to conduct searches but it says;


"To quickly find a thread or post of interest anywhere on the bulletin board, click on the 'Search' link in the navigation bar at the top of most forum pages. Then, type in the keyword or phrase you wish to search for, and select either 'Show Threads' or 'Show Posts' to view the results."


I found the option for Show Posts or Show Threads when clicking on the "Search Forum" drop down once in a sub-forum like News & Announcements but it doesn't let me type in the search field there. If I go up to the search field at the top right and perform a search, it doesn't have an option and still lists threads and not posts. Which is kinda useless when the thread has over 45k posts. So what am I doing wrong?

You're using the forum search. The VBulliten search sucks balls.


From our previous discussion...

[h=3]Forums search function needs rework - or i need info´s how to use it correctly.[/h]

Google can do this, try

"site:7daystodie.com WhatEverTermYouSearch"

in google


as example



This really is the best way overall. :angel:
