Search Feature on this Website, How do you use?

Ok, I've been using this website for a few years now and everytime I do a search, it basically says NO INFORMATION. What am I missing? Are there instructions on how to use the search feature that I am not aware of?? I use search features on many other websites and am totally clueless on this one. What makes this different?

Please give some instructions here on how to use it. It would be greatly appreciated !!!!!!

Thank you in advance!!

Couldn't tell ya, man. It seems pretty simple (to me, at least) Maybe try using the + if using multiple words?

Re: Search Feature on this Website, How do you use?

Are you using the search that is in the second red bar from the top? Works every time for me.

68 RS Coupe 355/350 TH, Detroit Speed, Hotchkis, Vintage Air, 8.5" 3.42 posi 10-bolt, MagnaFlow 2 1/2" exhaust, etc.

X2. Between "today's posts" and "quick links", click on "search". From there,

"Search Forums" NOT "Google Search" or any of the others

From there,

Choose "Advanced Search" and a new screen pops up. Upper left of that screen, choose "Titles Only" if you don't want to read a million threads.

Each individual forum has a "search this forum" button also, with the same features as above, but will only search the forum that you're in.

Good luck. We're all counting on you.

I bet you're selecting the "Search" button on the upper row instead of the second row. If it gives you two options "Our Site" and "Links" it does not search forums.

Second red bar Search....

Also, the length of the word(s) you're searching can cause failed search returns. I believe if you're searching for one word, it must be more than 3 or 4 characters.
