No problem. Yes, the search can be difficult even though it is pretty standard- maybe this can help...
I've posted this before and am posting again hoping it will help any newcomers to this thread.
Here's a few quick tips that may help
Go toAdvanced Search
<--- click hereSearch by Keyword(s)
- you can enter several keywords you know should be included by using + sign in front of each word and the * behind the word (i.e. +5070* +1140*)Search Entire Posts
or Search Titles Only
- choose which is best for youAdvanced Search Help
- click on this for more tipsShow Results as
- click on Posts
or ThreadsSearch in Forum(s)
- choose which forum or forums you want to search (i.e. Plasma Flat Panel Displays)Save Search Preferences
- click on this at the bottom for a quicker search next time
When you are in a thread this works too....Click on Search this Thread
and use the + and * sign and 2-3 words that you know should be in the post
Here's an example:
Run an Advanced Search just like above...
Search Titles Only
Show Results as Posts or Threads
Search in Forum(s) - Plasma Flat Panel Displays
Maybe this can help make it easier for you, I know it made my searches much more productive...especially by narrowing my search by using the + and * sign and Show Results as Posts or Threads
