    Question about advanced search.

    Maybe Im not remembering correctly, but it seems in the past you could search a specific term used by a specific board member and the results would bring up all threads (or posts?) where that board member uses that term. What is happening now is it brings up only threads started by that specific person where the search term is used. Has something changed with the search function?

    It lists all my posts with the term "tank" and when I open the link it highlights the search term.

    Re: Question about advanced search.

    Were all the threads that came up started by you?

    Thats the issue Im running into. Its only pulling up threads I started, rather than all threads where I used a particular term.

    Question about advanced search.

    I just did an advanced search for the term work by Black-ZRX. Heres what I got. It didnt pull up this thread, even though Heino used that term in the above post. It only pulled up threads STARTED by Heino where he used that word.

    Edit - seems to be you're right...

    I did not use the term "specific" in my previous post though.

    Not enough coffee in me yet when I did that, apparently.

    Let me try that again now that I'm working on my 3rd cup.

    I searched for "tank" and it only showed threads started by Heino. Not this one.

    Re: Question about advanced search.

    In the advanced search window, at the top select the "Search Single Content Type" tab, then select "Find latest posts by this user" and check the "Exact name" box. That should give you what you are looking for. Let me know if that works for you.

    Re: Question about advanced search.

    That was it. Thanks, Tim!

    It was that Tab and the "Find Latest Posts By This User" selection that was no longer set as default. I have no idea how those settings were changed. Probably the result of a recent Firefox update, or something of that sort.
