View Full Version : Need help with old thread search

I am trying to find old posts regarding sleeping bags for kids, but am unsure of how to do 'word' search. When I type in 'sleeping bag', all posts with EITHER of those posts come up. Is there a way to do a more specific search?

To search for a full phrase, you usually put the whole phrase within quotation marks. A search for "sleeping bags" gives this result:
Also, if the thread you're looking for had "sleeping bags" in the title, changing the option from "Search Entire Posts" to "Search Titles Only" should help out immensely. That search gives this result:
Lastly, if you know a particular member who posted in that thread, you can add their name to the search as well in the box in the upper right labeled "Search by User Name." By cross referencing between keywords and user names, you can really narrow down your search.
