  • Search Engine Question

    One of the more popular responses on this forum is "try using the search engine". I wanted to find an old post that discussed nearfield monitors. I entered the word "nearfield", told it to search all forums including the text of the message, any date and it came back with no matches. I tried "near field" with the same result. I tried "nearfield monitors" - no match. I finally remembered that the discussion was about somebody looking for speakers to use while practicing in a closet so I tried the word "closet". 31 matches cames back and I found the message I was looking for which included the words "nearfield monitor" in one of the responses posted by Dr. Kildrum. Is there a trick to doing a search or is this engine not quite as excellent as promised?
