  • Searching the forum - Useful alternative

    I had trouble finding what I was looking for using the forum search feature. Fortunately there is another way to search the forum: use Google

    Example: I was using this search string (no quotes): "picacho del diablo"
    Using the forum software I did not find the 2004/2005 threads about our trip down there. So I used this search string in Google (again without quotes):

    "picacho del diablo site:www.4wdtrips.net"

    Note the second part starting with 'site:' this tells Google to only return results on www.4wdtrips.net.

    In this example case it worked perfectly and the threads I was looking for were the top search results.

    So much to see, so little time. Try using your 4WD to see and do more.

      I'll have to remember that. Yesterday, I was trying to update a thread on my roof top cargo basket project and couldn't locate it after multiple attempts and searching for all my posts. Had to start a new thread.

        Same situation that made me use this feature.

        I use this Google feature whenever I don't find something on a site or when a site/forum has an inadequate search function.
