    Default TUTORIAL: How to use the search function

    NOTE: If you need a closer look, click the image and then "all sizes" on the flickr.com page.

    Step 1: Scroll to the top of this page until you see something like this



    Step 2: Click on the word "Search", the third link from the right, where I've circled in red in the following



    Step 3: A menu will drop down. For this tutorial, we're going to be doing an advanced search because it comes up with more accurate results. If you want to search through a lot of posts, just type in what you're looking for. Otherwise, continue to follow this tutorial. Click "Advanced Search", where I have circled in red in the following



    Step 4: You will be taken to the next window. Under where it says "Search by Keyword", click the pull-down menu where it says "Search entire posts" where I have circled in red in the following

    Step 5: Click "Search titles only" on the pull-down menu you have just pulled down



    Step 6: Click inside the box above the pull-down menu where I have circled in red in the following



    Step 7: Type “Normal Attack”

    NOTE: Each search term (word) must be AT LEAST 4 letters long or the search will fail.



    Step 8: Press “Enter” and click the first result that comes up!




    Contratulations! You now know the difference between a normal attack and a raid!

    The search feature sucks. If you search for "quests" you get every thread with any response with the word quests.

    If you do an advanced search for "quests" with the settings "Search Titles Only" and "Sort Results by - Number of Views - in Descending Order", you will get a very nice set of results. http://forum.travian.us/search.php?searchid=1234342

    You can also use the "Save Search Preferences" feature to set it to automatically default to these settings every time you click "Advanced Search."
    I no longer check reputation regularly. If you want to leave feedback, please PM me.
