A quick search bar tutorial

[ Edited ]
6 replies 127 views Edited Nov 17, 2013

There are tons of identical posts on this forum. All of which have been answered about a million freaking times. This all could be avoided just by using the mysterious and apparently hidden search bar in the upper right hand side of the forum. For those that can't find it.... This is what it looks like.

Good luck. They'll just ignore it anyway.

You see those blue lines? They should be red so the bar would stand out.

Sometimes the search bar doesn't always reveal everything you want.

If you can't find anything about a topic you are wanting to post, then you have sufficient reason to post your topic even if there is already something there that you could not find.

The crybabies are the ones who have the tendency to post the topic that was already posted in the topic that you posted.

 

I personally think the search function needs to be revamped in a way that you can find something you are trying to search for even if the thread title is one or 2 letters/words off.
