Suggestions for a successful search?


I'm trying to search the Project Showcase forum for threads that members have done, showing the fire pits they've built. I can think of 2 specific threads that were very good.

But when I type "fire pit" into the search box, the posts that show up have nothing to do with that subject. I've tried a couple of other similar terms, but nothing seems to work.

Is there a special way to do a search and find the posts or threads that will be helpful? I thought I read a suggestion about doing a search of this forum through Google, but can't remember how it was explained. It may have even been a different forum where I saw it.

Thanks!

Barb

Using google- enter-- fire pit:diychatroom.com

There are at least 3 search bars on the chatroom page. I like to use the one labeled "Search this Forum"- located on the right - above the sticky post. This will limit your search to the Showcase
