    How to use the search function.

    To get the best use of the search function follow these steps.
    1. At the top right of the screen is the search function box.

    2. Type your query into the search field and click the orange “forums” tab next to the search tab. Then select the google tab from the search selection drop down box. Then click the search tab.

    3. The Google search feature is the easiest and most powerful of the search options available on AHB, you will be presented with a screen similar to the one below, then just select the thread you wish to view.

    There are other methods of searching the forums including the advanced search feature but the Google option is by far the easiest.

    Is there a reason why the Google search isn't just used as the default?

    I think some people may think that by selecting "Google" as opposed to "This forum", they'll be presented with general Google search results rather than AHB-specific ones.

    Having the abilty to select a specific search option is helpful, the member option for instance is really good for finding members.

    It is more of a program thing. If I am in a topic it will search the topic by default, if I am viewing the forums it will search the forums by default.
    I think we are better off showing people how to choose from the dropdown list rather than just have a google default.

    Great work Andrew.

    Yes thanks for that Yob, jogged my memory and got me motivated to post up and pin the process so it's easier to find.

    Are there any plans to incorporate the Google search into the app? The search on there blows.

    Not sure I understand krausenhaus, google is already integrated into the search function, you just have to select it.

    Don't believe Google search is an option in the app.

    In the AHB smartphone app? It gives you the option to filter results after searching by forum category, username, and thread title only/all posts. No option to select anything prior to searching.

    Thank you for posting this, have had little success using the search feature (selecting forums instead of google) so far.

    Sorry, didn't realize you were refering to a mobile app, something for Austin to look into and I think he is aware of the issue.
