Using the search tab

If I want to do a search for apple chutney, how do I go about it? Yes, I'm being thick but I get up all threads that mention either word. Embarassed
Nick

Type in Apple chutney
Click the Search for all terms radio button.

ETA: Except it's not working. Smile

Go to google and type:

site:forum.downsizer.net "apple chutney"

As I understand it the search facility was sacrificed to enable faster posting Sad . I might have got that wrong, but search doesn't really work on my set up any more.

Indeed! What Jema taketh away, Google giveth back.
Cathryn

Excellent, thank you.

So do I use the recipe I've got which doesn't cook the onions or do I use Rosemary Judy's one? Smile

I couldn't find the right complain form, so I just got sarcastic. Smile

Can we have the default option being search for all terms, not any? It seems more logical.

As you were if it's just me (this wouldn't be unusual!)
jema

That would be a remarkable bit of common sense Laughing

I've been meaning to mention it for years! Is it hard to do?
jema

It was done about two minutes after you suggested it.
wellington womble

So it is. Thank you!

A better search on DS would be Boolean :

type in
Apple AND chutney

as I have written it

You can do that too.
Gervase

Is the 'search' facility borked? it never seems to work for me.
jema

You'll need to be a little more detailed!
Gervase

Actually it's probably not borked, I am - I couldn't spell the term for which I was searching.

We could add a 'Did you mean...?' function like google does.

A talking paperclip that says, "Looks like you're making a bollocks of that. Would you like me to f*** it up properly for you?" might be better for me.
