TiBB's guide to working the new forum "Searching"

Recommended Posts

OK :smile:

Ever since the new forum arrived I have been struggling with searching the forum. On the old forum I would click "recent activity" or something.

I would then see all new post, but only the heading title's  :thumbsup:

 

But on the new forum I have been seeing every single post,    :mad:        

 

Here's my guide to creating a search very similar to the old form :winner_first_h4h:

I found this to be my favorite search criteria , highlighted by the red rectangle  .

 

Click on the little tick to make it you default search :wink:

I've altered the menu at the top so you have the option of unread content/all content showing newest first

 

This is by far the most configurable version of the forum up to date. if anyone is not sure how to use it, then create a new topic in forum help, someone will usually have an answer, if not I'll try to help

in Unread content you can also filter whatever you want using

If you change the search criteria, you are then given the option of whether you want to save it so you can use it again by clicking Activity & selecting the search you saved
