Give Search A Try...
As part of our DarkMatter upgrades and enhancements, we've made some minor tweaks in our Advanced
that may improve things for members who had trouble with our search in the past.
While it might take some getting used to, the advanced boolean search capability is the most powerful search function you'll find for any message
Just below the query builder is a brief bit of instructions, I'll repeat them here to make sure everyone notices:
Searching on "bird flu" in the first field will give you all the posts in the forums (up to 75 returns)
and timeframes specified that contain
the phrase, "bird flu".
If you refine your search by adding "Dick Cheney" in the second field, and selecting "must be" in the pulldown to the left, the search give you
all the posts in the forums and timeframes specified that contain both phrases, "bird flu" and "Dick Cheney".
If you further refine your search by adding "George Bush" in the third field, and select "must not be" in the pulldown to the left, the search
give you all the posts in the forums and timeframes specified that contain both phrases, "bird flu" and "Dick Cheney" and DO NOT contain the
phrase "George Bush".
Tips and Additional Information:
All searches return a maximum of 75 threads or posts, so it's best to work on refining your search.
When you search on forum posts, click on the author's name to jump to the specific post that matches your search.
When you search on forum thread subject lines, the date range is ignored and all threads are searched.
If you're not getting any returns, try expanding the date range.
