Searching Threads / Discussions

Mr. Moderator, I need to ask one of those stupid questions. Why is that when I search "all discussions" I receive many threads are listed but few and often none contain the searched words? I'm missing something but not sure what. Thanks.

Mr. moderator at you service...

Try searching all posts instead of all discussions (which is an option in the advanced search). What are you searching for?

An alternative to what Janet suggests is to use the Google search feature. It's located in the small "Search" pull-down menu, right under "Welcome, pjop".

The “Google Custom Search” (2ND box down) searches only the CruisersForum.

Thanks

As you can see my ability to control a keyboard is speculative, at best. Thanks for your help and such a quick response. No offensive meant in my reference to "mr" moderator, I went back to correct it once but my thumbs weren't cooperting, so I got frustrated and just pressed the send button. Thanks again.
