Another Way to Search for What You Want Here

Recommended Posts

Courtesy of Dale Credico! Thanks Dale.

 

The search function's fine here, but have you tried this?

Go to Google and type in:
site:https://www.ironhistory.com/forum
Then, type in your subject, for example, Larry Scott . . .
site:https://www.ironhistory.com/forum larry scott

gives you this:

https://www.google.ca/search?biw=1600&bih=789&q=site%3Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ironhistory.com%2Fforum+larry+scott&oq=site%3Ahttps%3A%2F%2Fwww.ironhistory.com%2Fforum+larry+scott&gs_l=serp.12...0.0.0.11643.0.0.0.0.0.0.0.0..0.0....0...1..64.serp..0.0.0.Q75OoieC9-A

It's good if you need a quick search of a forum or website.
I don't believe this method will allow you to see Data Den posts, or any 'protected' results on other sites.
There's ways around that, but they can take a little time.

If you do have access to Data Den, then search "Larry Scott" with the site's search function.
You'll get something like this:

https://www.ironhistory.com/forum/index.php?/search/&q="Larry Scott"

Use Control F. Type in "data" and then start digging.
