Hey everyone! I need some help. When I click on (search) it won't completely load up...so I can't look for anything!

I have not used (search) for quite a while; I don't know how to fix it. Has anyone else had this problem?

Please...help!

Thanks to all

ATS search is not great.... I just use Google, it's way easier and more precise, especially if you use googles search functions.

Start with typing site:abovetopsecret.com, leave a 'space', then type what you are looking for.

Check out this link, just read through the search options, should be a good start. Also, once you've clicked 'search' on google, below the search bar are more options for refining search, eg, click search tools to adjust variables like search location, time and reading level.

Just woken up, but as a silly example, try this:
Let's say you're trying to find a post/thread about bob lazar, but you know someone mentioned 'green men'

so, naturally, you search:
site:abovetopsecret.com bob lazar green men
-but it still seems a little vague. Try putting quotes around 'green men', to look for that exact phrase, like so:
site:abovetopsecret.com bob lazar "green men"
-okay. still vague (maybe more so!). Now, click on 'Search Tools', then click 'Any time' and change it to 'Past month'
Cool! limited the search to three results! Yay, I found the post I wasn't really looking for


I hope that helps someone. It's sure saved me a few times - a few hours!
