Need a sticky for Using the Search Function

Unread postby Phoenix853 » Tue Feb 03, 2015 5:28 pm

Is it me or is the search and advanced search hard to use to find things.

I was trying to find a topic that was suggested for reading and I can not seem to get this to work.

Does anyone have any suggestion on how to find two word searches like:
New Home
Issue dad
Cat fight

Use Google advanced search. The search feature here sucks.

To get google to only look here, add this to your google search:

site:forum.mensdivorce.com

Then use quotes to find groups of words in order, like this:

"a dad"

Lastly, the terms "issue dad" and "cat fight" aren't going to be helpful.
