Question about the Search function

CaptHenwayCaptHenway Posts: 31,247 ✭✭✭✭✭

When you do a search for anything do the results appear in any particular chronological order, either by date the thread was started or the date of the most recent posting in any one of the threads?

Is there any way to filter the results either way?

Thank you

    I've never noticed a way to place the results in a specific chronological order. However, if you go to the advanced search feature you can stipulate a date window and the results shown will only be from that window. Of course, I do not believe that is what you are looking for. Good luck!

    Excellent question and helpful answer! I, too, have been frustrated by this. There might be an easier way to do this, but I go to the search feature and hit "Go," then I just hit the arrow down feature to bring up the detailed input.

    I have always received the thread from the initial post. Then go to the page I’m looking for. Usually the last post.

    I was frustrated with the search function here a long time ago... Usually just use internet search functions.... Often one of the first few listed responses is from this coin forum. Cheers, RickO

    I made a thread about this very thing a couple months back, and was enlightened by some of the other forum members who recommended just using google and adding "collectors universe" at the end. I have never found the forum search feature to be particularly helpful, as you say the results are seldom relevant.
