Search problem

New postby JerryT » Fri Mar 13, 2009 3:46 am

I was attempting to search for past posts mentioning the Elgin Hulburd model and was told that the word "hulburd" is too common and is ignored. Same result when I added Elgin to the search. Is this a temporary glitch?

It's the way this package works, and it's really not good enough, Jerry. Sometimes the search works well and other times we get this silly message that doesn't mean what it says. If you search for Hulburd you will get the same answer. :(

If you can remember who posted it could you search by this method, or would have to search more broader like all Elgin postings?

I've had the same problem using the search; maybe a couple examples of how to use it correctly?
If proper technique is all it takes I'll learn- I need the info but get discouraged after 3-4 tries.
