    Search Question

    I'm logged in, thinking about posting something, possibly in a new thread, but wanted to check what's out there first. In Advanced Search...

    Whether I toggle on "All Types" in "Search Types" or not these are the results...

    However, there's an existing thread in The Padded Room named "Covid Roll Call!", but it didn't show up in my search results.

    Am I missing something? Operator error? Bug?

    Interesting. I would think the web interface would have a stronger back end, but guess not. Don't use the app, but maybe that needs to change.

    The Google site: searching approach is something I do often use, but in this case I'm trying to limit it to thread titles, so...

    Anyway, thx for the replies. Appreciate that.

    I don't know why you got what you got. But I choose "search single content type" not multiple. Search posts, titles only, "covid", all open forums, and got a long list with the "covid roll call" being one of them.

    The search actually doesn't suck IMO, it's just very confusing and most people don't know how to use it. But if used correctly, it seems to return correct answers, at least for me.

    Seems like this should do it, but it doesn't. (I get the same list of three results.)

    Clicking on "Search Single Content Type" (top left) to select it in the first Advanced Search window gets you here, where you can insure the various things Danno suggested are selected, and that does work.

    It is a little confusing, and the fact that others didn't recognize immediately that I was in the "wrong" interface when I executed my search leads me to believe I'm not alone in feeling that way.

    (BTW, is there a help page or writeup available anywhere on how to use the various search options?)

    Anyway, now I've been enlightened - so thx mucho for the info!

    It is ridiculously confusing. And yeah, it's practically a TGR meme that the search sucks so you're not close to alone in thinking it sucks. No help page or writeup that I know of, just my experience of trial and error. And no idea why the "multiple content types" search doesn't work, but the single content does. That would be an example of why the search function sucks.

    But many think it simply doesn't work, but it can be made to work, as you discovered. Glad I could help!
