Re:Stupid Question

Dear suesee:

It’s actually pretty simple — just type the two words, or phrase, that you want to search for into the box marked "search forum" and then press the Enter key on your keyboard. It will then search the archives and bring up posts in which those two words occur together, exactly as you typed them.

For example, if you type in the following in the search window:

tail bubbles

It will bring up only posts about seahorses with tail bubbles, not posts discussing air bubbles or microbubbles or posts talking about a seahorse that scratching itself with its tail or are the injured its tail somehow.

Or if you type in the following in the search window:

training program

…it will bring up posts from the archive that discuss Ocean Rider’s new training program for seahorse keepers, and not messages that discuss training seahorses to use a feeding station or training wild ponies to accept frozen foods.

Some search engines tell you to enclose the words or phrase you are looking for within quote marks (e.g., "tail bubbles" or "training program"), but that doesn’t work with this search program. It’s too literal — if you put the words within quotes, it will look only for instances where those words appear with quotes before and after, and you will get no hits.

Or some search engines will advise you to use modifiers to link words together, such as tail AND bubbles or training AND program. Again, that won’t work with this search program because it’s simply too literal — it will look only for post with the words "tail AND bubbles" or "training AND program" strung together as a three-work phrase, and you’ll get no hits.

Best of luck finding the information you’re looking for, suesee!

Happy Trails!
