    I understand and I do use the search BUT it's not user friendly for all the reasons previously mentioned by the other ladies.

    If it doesn't apply, let it fly.

    Keep it cute or put it mute.

      I agree...it isn't often when I do a search do I get what I'm looking for.


      The only way to fail is to QUIT...but it is impossible to stop, a man or woman, WHO WILL NOT QUIT!!!

          I never have a problem searching, but then I do use a desktop and not a phone to post. Thank you for mentioning this Mods!

The thread isn't even about what you searched, just so happen one of the comments mention it. I do however use the sticky function. Personally I will google it before posting a thread if I need to know something specific for reasons like this. I may not post threads but I do read the ones posted

                  It's ridiculous! That's why there are so many of the same threads!

                    I use the advanced search. Under keywords I change it from "search posts" to "search title" and that cuts down on a lot of the results.

                      I use the search function in my app all the time. It allows you to search threads or posts separately.

This can cause the participant to get discouraged. When searching, much information can be found and the product likely already has a thread dedicated to it with many responses. Similar threads are often merged but this process could be alleviated if the search function is used. If you have any questions about how to use the search function, feel free to ask. Thanks!
                        Quite correct Ms Barbie. It is discouraging to be new and introduce yourself but get no response nor welcome. But I have learned to use the search bar function on this site for my needs to avoid feeling snubbed. Any specific questions I have, I find it better to subscribe to blogs of naturals who are seasoned and don't mind responding :/

                          AMEN!!!! This is the first thing i've done since i've been on the forum... i search key topica and it brings up different threads. I guess people feel that no one will want to read old threads?!?!

                            Often times I do use the search function, and I will use major key words like "shescentit" but it will show no results...or it will show very vague results used within a forum. We all know that there has to be a thread on this brand...but I usually end up having to do a manual search. So if other people are experiencing the inconvenience with the search engine...they likely just create a new thread to avoid the hassle. Am I searching wrong? I would think specific keywords would give the best results, but it really is a shot in the dark. Is it case sensitive?

                              And I can't just search titles on the Android app that I've seen. Nor can I actually make a signature.

                                I have the ability to pick topic or post, but it doesn't matter. I served As I am an it yielded no results on either option. It's a hit and miss thing. I attempt to search but if it doesn't work, I just post a thread. People will be upset but hey what can I say? People will always find something to be upset about. I try though.
