General Discussions: ASK John: Search option in the forums??

Hey John,

Any way of adding a search option to your site? Would make finding things easier, and probably eliminate people from posting the same topics. Thanks

Do you mean like the one shown at the bottom of this page (scroll down and look for the key icon)?

Sorry did not see it. Don't have to be such a smart about it.

1. Sorry I helped you out! I will try not to make that mistake again.
2. Thank you for the courteous reminder — "No good deed goes unpunished!"

Just to clarify (although God knows why I bother): How was I to know whether you were aware of that search feature or not?

In my first post: "Do you mean like the one shown at the bottom of this page …"

I thought that perhaps you may have tried that search, but were seeking an alternative search method.

If that were the case I might have suggested using a Google™ Advanced Search, specifying www .johndee.com as the only Domain to search, which may have some advantage over the one built into the forum software.
