I feel silly when I ask a question and find that the answer is in a post on the forum somewhere. I keep trying to use the search feature, but I don't get good results. Really good information is embedded in threads like "what did you do to your trailer today." I'm sure members must get annoyed by answering the same questions over and over again, but finding the info is eluding me. Any tips to finding info. would be most appreciated.
Use google to search only this site. Say for example you want to search about awnings, type this into the google search: awning site:vintagetrailertalk.freeforums.net (or copy paste that and change the word awning to water tank or whatever you are searching for). HTH
Without getting too technical, only certain words go into the search engine. I have a problem searching for some specific threads such as "What did you do to your trailer today," too.
PLEASE title your threads with specific words such as FLOORING, INSULATION, etc. Then the subject can be found by typing the subject word into the box with "thread titles." I too, find the "with all the words" effective, but it doesn't always find the title of a thread.
Catchy, cute titles get our attention but then the info contained in them is sometimes hard to retrieve.
Put the year and make of your trailer in the thread title, also, so others can find info about specific trailers.
