      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Search engine difficulties

Recommended Posts

Everytime I try to run a Search, it only shows results since the "upgrade." Anyone else have this problem or am I just f*ing up?

check what date range options you are searching. i just did a search for rainier with the limitation of post must be older than 1 year and got lots of stuff about a dog named fido!

OK, I figured out the date range options. It seems a bit silly that the default is for any messages newer than one day. But I can't find a way to just see the original post of each thread of my search, which was an option before the upgrade.

using google and limiting it to "site:www.cascadeclimbers.com" is how i search this site now. it works great.

The current search limits you to posts less than 4 years old. Would it be possible to change the date range to search every post? I realize currently there isn't much that old, but soon there will be.

how about a radio button to select entire available history - avoid the manual insertion and confusion for others?

blakes google method is a nice resource (easy from the advanced search) - different results, of course.

Where is the general search now? It used to be a link at the top... </dumb>

 

In the upper righthand corner of the page. Click the drop-down menu just left of the "Go" button and select "Search forums.."
