This is excellent! I use this search feature a lot trying to keep related post or additional information together.

We should all try to use the Search Feature when posting a new topic. A lot of times the topic you are about to post has already been discussed. The best thing is to add to an existing post to keep all the information together.

Thanks for the information JIP, this will come in real handy.

Hi all. I wanted to remind everyone to please think about the SEARCH function for the forum and how important it is.

Above you will see a post by JIP on the use of this very important and useful function. It is very easy to use and can rapidly provide you with a lot of information. The problem is we end up with a lot of different posts on the same topics.

For instance, try a search on Chatterbait. I come up with about a dozen topics asking for information, opinions or positive and negative comments on the Chatterbait. With separate topics, we would have to do a lot of research to find what we are looking for, or we end up asking the same question over and over by starting a new thread. If these were all consolidated together we would have some extremely valuable information. We would also have a historical look at a specific topic. Something that started out as a plus may turn into a minus or it may get increasing positive comments. Positive and negative thoughts on a particular product in the same thread are extremely useful to all of us in the decision making process.

Another example is one reel versus another. Comparing reels is great information. For instance if you had two different threads like the Pflueger X vs. Shimano X and the Pflueger X vs. Daiwa X , if these were in the same thread, we would have some excellent comparison on the Pflueger reel.

not sure if this is working...searching "All Forums" and only getting maybe 3-4 hits, if any, when querying for calcutta, scorpion, dc, etc. i would expect to get a few dozen on "common" words like that, no?

ZB, that is strange. I came out with the same results. Only 12 matches on the word Scorpion? JIP will have to take a look at that when he gets the chance.

After the server upgrade the search function hasn't been fully restored yet. We'll get it working by next week. :D
