Search Suggestion

How about another field for "username" in the search forum?
A lot of times when I'm searching I will know who made the post, but have a tough time narrowing it down by key-words.
I know, you can view all of a user's posts, but that takes a while if the poster's got over 500 to sort through.

Re: Search Suggestion

Sounds like a good idea to me. I always have problems looking up old post and I know they are there and who posted them I just cannot find the right keyword.

Anyone?????
Chad???

Same situation today.
Knew who did the post, just had a heck of a time coming up with the right keyword.
If I coulda searched by the username, I woulda been there in a flash.
Frustrating as H.E.double L!!!
Can it not be done?
Just be nice to know.

Thanks!

Re: Search Suggestion

<font face="Comic Sans MS">What the heck are you talkin' about? You *can* search by username... Click the "Search Options" box and that option is the last one on the list... Then just type username into the keyword/subject box and date range you want searched... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>

Re: Search Suggestion

Tim, say I wanted to find a post that TheSandman454 wrote about Dana 44's. There's currently no way to do that.
I can find all the posts about Dana 44's (which is a huge number) and I can find all the posts by Sandman454 (which is also pretty big.
But there's no way to limit that Dana 44 search to posts made by Sandman454.

I think that's what folks are wanting here [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] It would be a nice option, but I'm guessing it's not part of the software, so it would probably take some custom code to make it happen.

Re: Search Suggestion

Yep. What Derek said.
I thought I was clear enough in my first post, but Derek did a better (practical application) job of explaining it.[img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: Search Suggestion

<font face="Comic Sans MS">Aah ok... That makes more sense now... I concur in that case that seems like it'd be a useful thing to have in fact... [img]images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]</font>
