[FAQ] Using SEARCH

Recommended Posts

Our dear respected members may search for forum posts, member profiles, help files, or the calendar by entering an item in the "search" box in the upper right corner of the screen. After typing it in, press the "forums" button to select which category the search will fall in (forums, members, help files, calendar). Click the magnifying glass to initiate the search. If you want a more precise search, click on the cog wheel to the right of this. This will enter you into the "advanced search" menu. Within here, you can specify boundaries for your search (by tags, authors, date, subforum, etc). Keep in mind there is a flood control, so you cannot perform a new search immediately after another, and you will have to wait around 60 seconds before another search can be performed.

There are two ways to use the Search feature:

1. Using Quick Search feature can be found in upper right corner of the screen. Enter the "content" that you are interested to search and select which category the search will fall in (All Content (default), This Topic, This Forum, Topic, Events, Blog Entries, Members). After that you could either press Return Key or click the magnifying glass icon to initiate the search.

FYI: You cannot search words of only 3 letters. For example, you can't search the name Ali. If you want to search Imam Ali, you must put it in quotation marks to search "Imam Ali" but that brings up 68,000+ results. So click on the link called 'search in content titles only' to see only the topics about Imam Ali AS (or your search term). See image below. Click on the image to enlarge.
