The "Search" Engine
« Topic Start: June 21, 2008, 10:04:55 PM »
What is the best way to use the search option here at the WNFF?

I use it but a lot of time it brings up a lot of nonsense.  For example if I type in:

Wily Mo Pena

I get anything with Wily or Mo or Pena that is anywhere in any thread. But I also get crap hits on things like More and Move.

Is there a way to by pass all that uselessness or is there a better way to get better hits?

You can set the search parameters by clicking on the next to the search box. That's what I usually do so I can search through the titles only.

Simply enclose your search term in quotes if you want exact hits.   "Wily Mo Pena", for example.
