    HSome seer search

    While I appreciate all the effort the team is put into this site I would like to request and Enhanced search engine for terms here when I type things and I cannot in many instances find phrases or simple terms yet those terms are in post and forums that I search search.

    Example DNS

    Example Duplicate addresses

    I find myself having to create my own catalog of bookmarks to find post that have excellent teaching examples because they are so difficult to find again

    Many thanks for all you've done for this forum

    PS any typos are siri's fault

    Sometimes it is better to search the board from Google. Google "homeseer.com" and whatever other words you want.

      Here is a post explaining how to leverage Google for searches. There is also a link to punctuation and symbols that can be used in search terms.

      An example of one of the terms you were looking for would be this

      https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...e+addresses%22

      -or-

      https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q...te%2Baddresses

        You already have links to instructions for searching the board with Google. I still think it's worth the trouble to create a list of links to helpful threads. I have been doing that for years, and it's very likely that Randy got to those links from his own list of helpful posts. I find that it is useful to review my list occasionally as well. Usually I come across a piece of wisdom that I've forgotten.

          An enhanced Google search should work :
          search terms site:board.homeseer.com

          This works for any site on the WWW.

            I probably should keep a list I use a Google search to find even my own posts. Someday I'll get organized.

              I just realized something that should have been obvious, but clearly wasn't. I followed one of the links that Randy posted to a Google search of the HS Board, and I saved it to my FF bookmarks bar. Now, all I have to do to search the board is to click on the link and substitute the text I want to look for in place of the terms in the link!

                In Chrome when I start typing "Site:board.homeseer.com..." In the address bar the auto-complete finds my last HS search and I just edit the search terms on the end. Same idea.

                  Maybe I'm an outlier, but I keep my browser pretty much totally in the dark about what I've done in the past. No history, no cookies, no trackers. If there is a security setting I can turn on, I do. It does make web browsing a bit more work, but it has pretty much eliminated targeted ads.

                    Yes, good point! That makes a lot of sense.
