    Posted: 08 Sep 2013 at 8:02pm

Click Search........Advanced Search............Change Message Body to Topic Subject   MOST IMPORTANT then type in Keyword

If unsure as to which forum it'll be in, opt for All Forums immediately below Keyword box.

You'll have no trouble doing the above but remember Topic Subject not Message Body as the latter just times out.

                                                              OR


When searching for thread titles use google and type in  "subject thoroughbred village" and any or all threads with that or those words in it, will show up in the search results...

Thank you Fiddlesticks Thumbs Up

I spoke to the mayor once about it and he changed the default setting in 'Search in' from 'message body' to 'topic subject'. It's changed back now though. I think this stops people finding results for their horses.

I have no problem with the search function.  I use advanced search and then use the topic option.

Better option is to type your search term followed by site:http://forum.thoroughbredvillage.com.au 
Never had trouble finding something that way.

 Until last week there was a link to advanced search right under Search, at the top of the screen, and you could go straight to it. Now it's gone. Bring it back.

Definitely gone. I'll check the popup blocker to see if that's the problem- no. Ad blocker- no.

I am on Chrome but I was on Chrome when it was there.

agree...tried the search engine here, then googled it...got articles from TBV come up..but no thread title...

 I usually waste my time going from page to page, just to find any subject...

 still looking for the discussion we were having on Johnny Depp's interpretation of Tonto in the Lone Ranger...wasted an hour trying to find it without success...

Desert War, Rain Lover, Latin Knight, Hay List, Mustard...my turf heroes...

The advanced search function has been hidden by the damned Sportsbet banner Angry. I was intending to look for Dan Excel but stuck it in the Rupert Clarke thread Disapprove

I don't think some people (Djebel maybe) know that after you click on the Search button, top rightish, if you hover the cursor along the bottom left of the box, so that the arrow cursor changes into a pointed finger, you can then click, and access the Advanced Search.  (Advanced Search has always been off the bottom of the box for me, and that's how I access it.)
