Search terms limited

Postby zaneclark » Tue Jul 16, 2013 9:34 am

I just tried to search the Clerk forum on a missing membership number. The reply was that "membership" and "number" were too general so it only searched the word "missing." How can i conduct a search for my question?

You can use the trick described in my signature and adapt it to searching the forum.

So go to Google and enter "missing membership number site:tech.lds.org/forum" (without the quotes).
Have you searched the Wiki?
Try using a Google search by adding "site:tech.lds.org/wiki" to the search criteria.

Google really is much better... I wonder if LDSTech has looked into just using Google site search for the search box instead of their own system...

The rules for what is a "common" word have been adjusted so that many more words are now searchable. For the example from the original post, both "membership" and "number" can now be searched.
