How to Use the New Search Engine
    #2234881 - 01/11/04 04:32 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

The new and improved Search Feature in UBB.Threads 6.4 is very powerful, however if you're not familiar with how to use it properly, it may not yield the results you are looking for.

To Perform a Search:

  • Go to the Search Page

  • Select the Category, Forum or Forums that you would like to search from the left.
    - Selecting a Category will search all forums in that category.
    - Selecting one forum will search in just that forum
    - Selecting multiple forums will search only withing those selected forums

  • On the right, to search a keyword enter it into the box. You can click "Advanced Search Tips" for more help.
    - Entering a single keyword will search for that word.

    - Entering 2 or more words will search for each word, as if there were an OR operator. So entering peanut butter will search for posts containing peanut OR butter

    - Entering 2 or more words WITH PLUS SIGNS will search with an AND operator. So entering +peanut +butter will search for posts that contain peanut AND butter but they do NOT have to be together.

    - Entering 2 or more words IN QUOTE MARKS will search for the phrase. So entering "peanut butter" will search for posts that contain the PHRASE peanut butter and will not return the post if it contains only one of the words.

    - Entering 2 or more words with A MINUS sign will exclude words from the search. So entering +peanut -butter will search for posts which have the word peanut in them and DO NOT have the word butter.

    - You can mix and match search operators. For example, entering "peanut butter" -jelly would return posts containing the PHRASE peanut butter and NOT containing the word jelly.

    - Entering "peanut butter" +jelly -dance would return posts containing the PHRASE peanut butter and containing the word jelly but NOT containing the word dance.

  • Below that, you can choose whether you are searching the subject AND body of the posts, or just the subject.

  • Under the Username search section, you can enter a username here. This can be done with or without keywords. So entering "peanut butter" +jelly + dance in the keywords and the username of navaho would return posts containing the PHRASE peanut butter AND the word jelly AND the word dance posted by the user navaho.

  • Next select a date range. There's an option to search all posts, or search for posts newer or older than a certain criteria. Narrowing down the search time will increase the speed of the results.

  • Next you can choose how many results per page you wish to view.

  • As well as choose to view a profile of the body. If selected this will show you the first few words in the body of each post.

  • When you are finished, click "Submit".

Is it a good thing to be hooked up to Google?

Hell yes! I asked Anno to throw the google search on there so if people weren't finding answers to their questions on the BB, they would have a quick alternate function to search the entire site which includes the static front-end information (of which there is heaps of), as well as the archived historic posts.

I know this is old as dirt but I didn't find what I was looking for and a bump is better than making a new thread.

Is there a way to search within a thread apart from having to 'show all'? 

There are a lot of 10-15+ page threads where I remember something generic but the forum search would return a pile of results.  If possible, a search limited to the desired thread would return very useful results without having to load up the whole thing.

There wasn't a way to do this, but since you searched first and posted in the right place the least I can do is add it. :wink:



And by the way the information in this thread is outdated, there are more options for the search now so please go to http://www.shroomery.org/forums/searchtips.php to view the current syntax.

That's a great addition. Might I suggest moving it to the top of the page, though?

Glad you like it and thanks for the suggestion. :smile: I don't think it would really fit how you envision it though because the breadcrumbs can get pretty long in certain forums, eg:


At any rate, I believe it makes more sense to keep it out of the way. Even though I'm sure it will be very helpful at times, I just can't imagine it will see such frequent use as to require a more prominent position. And I suspect anyone who's looking for a "search this thread" option will find it anyway. But depending on how people actually end up using it, I'm always willing to reconsider the placement.

yes, keep out of way.


Otherwise this place will turn into mycotopia with three pages of administrative bullshit and bitching before the first hint of content is encountered.

would it be possible to have an option to only return threads with the searched for words AND which contain pics? Maybe also only the pages with pics on. A bit like image search on Google.

Hmmm... not without changing the way that posts are indexed, but it might be possible. Would anyone else use this feature?

Cheers, thanks much Ythan!  You run an amazing site and we're all most grateful.  :cheers:
