Re: Hello from Cedar Creek, Texas!
Welcome to Beesource!
This comment may be premature or appear complicated for a brand new member, but perhaps not. Beesource offers a variety of search options, but there are significant differences.
Note there are two primary ways to effectively search Beesource. If you want info on a topic, but aren't searching for a specific member, the Google Custom Search on the left side of home page: http://www.beesource.com/ is your best bet. This is exactly the same search as you get by using a normal Google search, but the results are specifically limited to just Beesource.
If you want to search for posts involving a specific Beesource member, use the forum AdvancedSearch, instead: http://www.beesource.com/forums/sear...?search_type=1
The link is to the "Search Single Content Type" and works better than the Multiple Content tab. But this search feature has no advantage if you are not looking for a posts by a specific member, and the Google search is a better choice in that case.
Also, the specific value of advanced search results returned are greatly affected by the "Show Results as Posts" button in the "Additional Options" box near the bottom of the page. The default is "Threads", not "Posts", but "Posts" are more useful when looking for results from a specific member.
