Search Help

Am I just doing the search wrong? Every time I put in something to search it doesn't bring stuff related to that up. It brings up all the current posts.

Basically the search function is pretty bad here (being polite). I have better luck using Google. Start the search phrase with "Airforums".

Try an external search engine like Google.
If you use this site:www.airforums.com in search window it will show results from airforums only.

Example : axle repair site:www.airforums.com

In addition to the suggestions given already, Post #9 in this earlier thread may be of some help:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...es-145169.html

The basic search function here is limited in utility, but there are plenty of ways around it!

Good luck,

Peter

The Forum search function is a straight up keyword search. You can learn to make it work by limited the areas you search. for example: search in a specific forum to reduce returns.

You could also try the google custom search available on the upper nav bar - or try the one in my signature

Additionally:

The Search engine is your friend and useful if used wisely: Go to the appropriate subforum (For example: LP Gas), then click on "Search this Forum" (in blue tool bar), then click "Advanced Search", then enter the Key Word (let's say "grill"), and change the field from "Search Entire Posts" to "Search Titles only", which will provide more relevant threads (of posts). And on any thread, you can click "Search this Thread" for more specific results!
