Help Me Find It! - The Search Master Thread (Self Help Edition)
« on: February 21, 2021, 06:49:59 PM »
there is much to say on the topic of searching DDF, but I'll just start with something small.

if the built in search engine is not cutting it for you, try using google. just type in (or copy paste)
Code: [Select]
site:forums.dansdeals.comfollowed by whatever it is your searching for and google will return results from DDF alone.

Kinda old news

You can always google using
site:forums.dansdeals.com
Amongst many other times :)

Don't think a new thread is required.

Cool.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

if you'd like to search with specific parameters in a specific thread, you can do so by adding in the url any of the following:
Code: [Select]
&userspec=*
Code: [Select]
&sort=relavance|desc
Code: [Select]
&sort=first_post|desc
Code: [Select]
&sort=last_post|desc
Code: [Select]
&minage=0
Code: [Select]
&maxage=9999+more :)
(In place of "desc", "asc" can be used)

So for example this will search just in this thread:
Code: [Select]
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=120133.0;action=search2&search=picture&userspec=Yo%20ssiAnd this will search in the whole forum:
Code: [Select]
https://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?action=search2&search=picture&userspec=Yo%20ssi

Never said otherwise

The point is to have it all in one place,not buried in some thread.

Don't think a new thread is required.

that's in JS, and I and some others weren't able to find it when looking for something like this.

Point is some of us want a place to help ourselves find things instead of relying on timt
