I have a member asking about the search feature.  She has tried to search for a specific drug and while she found a post about it, that post does not show up in the search feature.  I tried it and sure enough it didn't find that other post no matter how I spelled the drug.  I found my member's posts about it but not that other post she came across. 

So is there any news on the search feature?  Is it working properly?

Hi Karen,

I am going to add this to the list but as far as I last heard, search was working as it should. What drug were you looking for? If we can be specific with examples it may help pinpoint whether or not there is a problem and what the problem may be.

Thank you so much for your help!

Pristiq.  I also spelled it pristiq, pristique, pristeq, pristeek,  anyway I thought it could be mispelled.  I used both caps and lower case.  I don't know if it is working or not so I was asking.

So I have a couple of questions - and possible issues.  :)

1.  When things are all sorted out, will it be possible to make a search board specific?  It seems as though that capability is lost right now - there is no "advanced search" option or a way to make it search just one board - it seems to be an all or nothing thing at the moment, and that will make searching for a thread on one's own board much more difficult I would think.

2.  As a specific example, I typed "triggers" into the search box.  Now, on my board alone I know that we have used that specific word hundreds of times over the lifespan of the board - and on the related boards as well.  But the search results say that it found 8 results. Yes, one of the results is from my board - but it is one thread, out of who knows how many, and it is a very recent one.  So, is the search not yet populated with ALL of the posts?  I'm trying to c&p the screenshot, we'll see if I manage that or not.  LOL

Thanks,

Kim

  1. Re: Suggestions after discovery.

    Recently I’ve been thinking about those first few days and weeks after discovering my wife’s affair. It hasn’t been fun touching and testing these scars. I’m surprised at the hollow feelings it has brought back. Those days, weeks and months were the worst days of my life. I remember telling my spouse that it would be better to just tell me the truth. When she did, I remember saying “How could you” and finding my way to the front door.

  2. How do you... Sometimes a change of scenery works for me. Try taking a drive through an unfamiliar part of town or walking into a thrift shop. I always keep paper and a pen in my car as well as a dictophone. Sometimes I'll need to jot something down at a lot. (Don't worry- I don't do serious writing in the car- just ideas at lights.) Even playing a yahoo game and having a conversation with someone I don't know sometimes triggers an idea. Good luck. Terror
  3. new writer question... Hi there! I am just getting ready to graduate and I finally want to try and write. I don't have a writing background, nor did I take writing (creative etc.) in school. The most I can brag about is doing a 20 page research paper...but now, that's not fiction is it! :)

    Basically what I want to know is: How did you know that you are a writer?

    I feel like I want to write. I feel like I have a story in me. But like I said, other than this forum I have absolutly no exposure to writing.

  4. Re: Scared?

    First off..yeah..I can see posts and reply today! (I am at work..not on netbook)

    Second..hoping everyone is staying warm and dry. Following the weather on the news (I'm pretty far from all the action!)..and hoping everyone stays safe, sane, etc.

    And finally? I'm feeling scared.

  8. Re: Kicking things off!

    Oy, I do miss my color, but that's the least of worries, lol.  Hope everyone is doing well and feeling positive about the changes to the boards.  If you are still having problems, drop a line to the cm for your board and they'll look into it.  Lots of time and effort are going into making this a more reliable, responsive board for all, and sometimes that takes working out the kinks.

Hi Kim,

I have reported this as search does not seem to be picking up all posts. I appreciate everyone taking time to give us so many details!

I don't have any other information other than it is reported but I will be sure to let you know when I hear something.
