How Did I Screw That Search Up ?


I copy and paste a title in the search box and clicked on search titles only and I get the all too familiar:

Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms. The following words are either very common, too long, or too short and were not included in your search :

What should I have done?

Too long - how many characters are within code parameters?

The best way to search this site is with Google... Type whatever you're searching for fallowed by (diy chatroom) in parentheses in the Google search box.

Thanks

Got a similar on DIY with that method but not for the title I was searching.

I't seemed to be too long on DIY search so I cut the title short by a few words and had success. That was the reason for the no. of characters question.

With the "creative" or careless spelling that is on this site, it is amazing that the searches work as well as they do.
