forum search tutorial

Recommended Posts

hello community!

today i'll tell you how to search properly for topics.

1. step

the marked field in the right corner is the searching field. i've marked it red.

 

2. step

when clicking the search field a "All Content" button will appear. if you click it you'll see 4 options: 

-All Content (shows you everything)

-Topics (this option allows you to search for topics containing the typed in words. we'll call them tags)

-Members (allows you to search for members).

-Advanced Search (shows you more options)

now let's continue with this tutorial

 

3. step

if you click on advanced options you'll get access to more restrictions for your search like showing posts that have been updated in the last 24 hours.

but now let's start searching!

 

4. step

if you search for  something you should use the basic form of the tags. let's take an example: we're searching for topics about crafting. we'll use the search tag "craft" without "" because craft is the basic form of crafting. it works the same way with multiple tags like "craft weapon" without "" because the search shows you everything containing both tags.

you'll see white marked words. they contain the tags you've searched for.

under the searching field you'll see a sentence saying "+ More search options". clicking it will lead you to the already shown advanced options.

 

and that's it! :D

Sometimes, when I use the search function, nothing happens. Just blank pops up. 

I imagine that's because your search returned no results?

it looks like this on my iphone 7 plus:

looks acceptable.

could you upload some screenshots? would be better than talking to someone who doesn't own the same device as you.

get into the mobile browser settings and change options to show desctop version. the mobile version is more easy to use because the search bar is in front of your eyes.

Why do we need a guide to do such a simple thing? smh

We need this because some people don't know what the hell they're doing when they come to the forums and post things that have already been answered multiple times... lol

I would like to know if you have the option in the forum to see which trophies we can get in the forum.
