Boolean Searching

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to figure out how to do it, is it possible to do boolean searchs(on this message board)? Like and/or/not?

The search engine seems to default to those most worthless case of OR.

Nope. It's an OR, with a minimum search word of four characters. It's the one irritating thing on an otherwise great board.

Sometimes I do get some luck just doing a google or yahoo search and including glutenfreeforum in the search string. It won't get you everything, but if you're looking for a specific answer to a question, it can be helpful in pulling up at least a couple things.

Or try this....

Actually, for those of you who have trouble using the search engine here, you could always use Google's.

1. Go to google.com

2. Choose "advanced search" (URL is: http://www.google.com/advanced_search?hl=en)

3. Type in your search query in the blue "find results" area at the top.

4. Go to "domain" further down and choose "only" and type in "glutenfreeforum.com"

5. Click "Google Search" near the top right.

Cool. never even thought of that. Probably won't work for real recent posts, but great idea for older ones. Already found a few questions I had been searching for.
