    Please do a search before creating new threads

    Often in forums there are several threads floating around on the same topic which makes information get a little choppy and lost. Also when forum participants are looking for information on a specific product and create threads, there may not be many responses because there is already one or several threads on that same topic. 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!

    Thx for the reminder. I was actually about to make a thread asking questions about coconut oil. I think I'll search first!

    How do you use the search function on a laptop?

    How about merging all the "in between length" threads?

    Actually I just did a search and found 11 Beautiful Textures threads. Each one only had a few comments. They've been merged into one.

Whenever I use the search function on the computer, I have no problem finding whatever I'm looking for. For example, a thread was started on Organix products. I knew there was already a thread/several threads on that topic so I clicked "search", then put the selector in the "threads" option. Immediately the threads popped right up on the first page and I didn't have to go digging around for it.

    Oh that's good to know because I often wonder why when I do a search on my app I can't find certain topics. Thanks.

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?

    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.

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

    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 :/
