Forum search query cheat sheet?
Post Posted: Mon Apr 20, 2015 8:50 am
Is it possible to get an overview of the options for formulating a query to search the forums? I.e. search only topics, date filter, include words/exclude words, attachments, etc.? The wiki has one, but not the forum search module?

The forum search is super simple, there are no operators, and short or common words are silently ignored (!). Use Google if you need more. There are options there and I recommend searching by topic, not post, most of the time.

Exactly! That was what I wanted to do. But how do I do that in Google? Something like "site:www.smspower.org" and then...

I was referring to the "display results as" option in the forum search page.
