    Searching on the Forum.

    I was on a forum recently and when you were completeing the title for a new post as you typed, suggestions about what you were looking for were displayed below the line as you typed.

    I thought that this was a really good idea which would help to prevent duplicate posts.

    Thanks for the idea.

    I'm not sure the version of Vbulletin used on TFF would allow such a feature - perhaps the other forum used different software.

    In the meantime, the most effective way to search this forum can be found in the following thread...

    I know the thread {HOW TO] Effectively Search On This Forum is closed but I would like to offer a few thoughts if I may.

    • The following is written for FireFox but it also works the same for Bing

    • When using it does not have to be at the end of the search it can also be at the beginning
    t100 & t100 both work

    Can't remember?
    • Type into the Google search box and then search for just that. Bookmark the search results page. In the future when you use the bookmark just add what you are searching for to the end (or beginning) on the results page

    • After bookmarking go to the FireFox URL bar and type site if you have more than one site bookmarked like this simply type a space then tr etc until you see the search page you want

    Hope it helps
