Search being annoying...

Post by blauenlanze » Thu Sep 18, 2008 6:34 pm

So I was trying to find a post in the thread "Let's see what you all look like" and entered the author. Conveniently enough, all of the words were considered common search terms. :lol:

Try searching "let's+see+what . . ."

That might help.

okay, i figured out how to do what you want but it's the results are quite quirky.

Just change "CHANGE_AUTHOR_NAME_HERE" (less quotes) below. I made the link below invalid because you need to change the author for which you'd like to search.

Search within a thread? I already found the post I was looking for, though. And yes it works!

Did you mean my search method worked? Because it looks like it does, it certainly limits a search's results to one particular person's posts solely for that particular topic, but it returns ~.136E7 results.
