how to use advanced search?

i type in the keyword at the top... i.e. "PSU" or "Radeon" or "SSD"

in the forums I pick BST computer hardware

at the bottom i pick search in thread titles

return as threads (not posts)


it shows me stuff from 2015 and 2016...

am i doing it wrong?

You may have discovered a new bug. I tried the same search and while my results didn't start from 2016 or 2015, they did start in July of 2017 and there most definitely are threads since then which should've come up first.

hey @TomRFD how broken is the search? i'm trying to look for a hot deals thread from Nov 2019 for August Connect selling for $25 at Bell store and i can't find it. i know it exists because i bought it at that price because of the thread.

edit:
nvm found the thread manually... didn't have what i thought was there though... thanks

I find using Google to be very reliable when trying to search for RFD threads. Maybe RFD can find a way to build a Google engine into the website's search feature.

like how do you do it ? site:forums.redflagdeals.com? it won't search specific forums though? like what about my original question about looking for PSU and GPU or whatever parts in BST?

it used to work pretty well. i stopped BST for a few years but i rmb like pre 2016 (?) it was pretty good i was using it daily to look for stuff to buy and sell.

I just google "abc redflagdeals". Google's pretty good at referencing accordingly.
