How to Search the Forums

Postby PiratePlum » Tue Dec 01, 2015 4:50 pm

Ahoy Trademasters! Have a question? Need an answer? Use Advanced Search on our forums to find the topic you are looking for and join the discussion!



You can find Advance Search under the "Main Menu" list on the right side of the screen. Once you're in Advanced Search, you can narrow down your search terms by placing + in front of the word that you want found and - in front of a word that you do not want found.

On iPhone (mine anyway!), tapping the ° on the upper right side of the screen takes you to the search page.

Some forum areas are restricted to admins but users can post in most categories - General Discussion, Support, Trade Requests, etc. If it's "user friendly", you should see and be able to tap the New Topic button. If there's no button, you can't post from there.

Forum subcategories/threads

I'd really like to see the Feedback, Suggestions, and Support made into section headers with multiple forums in each (sub-forums?). it would make it easier to browse for answers and to see if I'm just repeating what others have said. Ideally we could also thumbs up/agree with other peoples posts, so there wouldn't be a need for "me too" postings to let you know there's a need. Might make analytics easier too ;)

Good idea! Sticky topics would also be of great help.

-edit- Awesome! The sticky topics look good!
