Even better if you use "site search...
In google just type the topic plus site: then the website
i.e.

36 ford site:jalopyjournal.com/forum/ in a normal google search
to search the HAMB,

Just change the words before site to search for some thing else

belly tank site:jalopyjournal.com/forum/

if you want to search just the classifieds use
36 Ford classifieds site:jalopyjournal.com/forum
to search another site just add the specfic site after the colon.
i.e.
36 Ford site:craigslist.org
If you want to search craigslist in seattle
36 Ford site:seattle.craigslist.org

In fact you don't even need to use google, you can just type the topic and site: plus URL into the address bar on your browser....on Firefox you can , I presume explorer is the same.
You can also use the exclamation marks and other search techniques within the "site" if the words or numbers are too short .

Yeah...what he said! Would it be possible to add a zipcode function, so you could sniff for parts w/in a certain range ring? At $4.25/gal, I'm really starting to limit the distance I cruise for parts! Thanks,

So why is it that when I do a search and 20 pages of results pop up and I go to click on page 2 of my results I get a message saying "sorry no results. try using different words in your search"?

Default Re: Tech Request: "Search function" on HAMB

I have tried, but can't figure it out.

I would like my search results listed in descending chronological order.

Example: I use the search string carb*

This will give me threads with carb, carburetor, carburator, carburetter (also the unwanted carbon), etc.; however the order is unknown to me. I have to physically search 5~10 pages of results looking for those in bold (since my last search). Inbetween the bold results, there may be threads in which the last post was yesterday or the day before.

So if the option existed "since my last search" I would receive no results before the last time I issued that search; OR if I could order the results in descending chronological order, I could then just read until there were no more results in bold.

Thanks in advance.

Jon.

Could be my sick, tired little brain.

Here's a few things I've learned about the search function.


Search term must be 4 letters or more. I think Ryan tried to fix that at one point but it didn't take.

You have to pay attention to what search function you use. If you use the "search this thread" it will only look at the thread you are currently viewing. "Search this forum" will only search the forum you are currently in.

The "Search" button below and to the right of the HAMB badge up there seems to search all threads and all forums. Using the advanced search option should get you alot closer to what you are after.

You might try clicking on "Search" up there and do a search for "search" or "search function". I did it and it came up with quite a few posts with pointers in them.

It would be good for someone who has figured the search function out to do a tech thread we can sticky...
That is my current problem, I don't have a search button below and to the right of the H.A.M.B. logo, can you see why I don' t have it?

In Soviet Russia, search button finds you.
