This is a useful option, but I find it can be very hit-or-miss with results.  I was searching recently for a post from someone who had written a blog about his trip to France and Spain.  I entered various combinations of words, including blog, France and Spain, but nothing was found.  In the end I just trawled through scores of posts until I finally found the one I wanted, which contained the three words I'd used to search.  Has anyone got any tips for successful searching?

Hiya, sorry to hear you struggled with the search facility.

You must choose whether you want to search by Author or Topic Subject. Also select the forum you wish to search in and note you can choose threads from the last 6 months, year, forever, etc. This could be where you went wrong?

Hi,
I new to this site, if found you via a google search.
However now that I have started searching the forums for some useful info I am finding the search tool very frustrating. For example when trying to search for "drive to cornwall" there is no obvious forum in which to search, this means that many posts are missed. In fact I am finding the search tool so limiting that I am finding it easier to search with google and enter the posts via the back door so to speak!
Can anyone tell me if it is possible to search for info in more that one forum at a time?
