Don't be too harsh to the newbies. The search function is really not
that great.

Maybe it's because I use Safari and not IE, but when I want to narrow
down the search to just one forum, each forum show up 3 times but
the search only works with one of them! And when I do manage to
pick the right link, I find it tiring to search through 8 or more pages
to see where my keyword was actually mentioned.

I have had this problem too beach_Meg!  But I started looking for the highlighted words!  It kinda helped but still takes a long time....plus sometimes there are other new people that have joined that can add to the topic!

I have the problem with three search fields too, and I use IE. I agree - it would be much easier if we could search threads for a particlar word/phrase.

Hi everyone!

Sorry about the bug with the search form. It has been fixed, so you should not see the three search fields. Please let me know if you have any other problems with the search form.

Thanks!

I am not opposed to people asking for recent input on any topic or vendor, but often times there is very recent input on a location, vendor, etc. in the Review Your Wedding section that can be found through a search.

I don't think my initial message was harsh and I don't think bumping it up as a reminder is harsh either.

I do not use the search function very much because I find it
frustrating.

This is because the search does not bring up the posting in which
the keyword was mention but the entire thread. So I find thread like
'list you vendors' become completely worthless as soon as they
reach more than just 4-5 pages. I just get fed up trying to find the
post where my search word was mentioned.

If the search would bring up the individual post in which the
keyword was mentioned (linked to the entire thread) then I would
use it more often.

Thanks for fixing the duplicate (triplicate) search fields, Lori! Much easier!

thanks for bumping!! I only just found where to look for people's vendor reviews without just reading their signatures from other threads...

Since there seems to be a bunch of new brides, I thought I'd put out a little reminder about the search function. If you look up, just below the title, "San Diego Wedding Discussion Board" there's a button marked search (it is a magnifying glass button). You can search the entire board using keywords, or just a particular thread... like, if you're looking for "Marissa dresses" you can type that in and search the whole board, or just the dress section.

A lot of times valuable information from the past is lost without a search. If you find a thread on your topic, you can always revive it, private message a person who posted there or use that information to ask a more specific question!

Hope this helps! Good luck in your planning!
