Unhappy Search Engine Difficulties

Hello, brand new here, w/question about using the search engine. It seems an impossibility to narrow down topics, as the old forum comments tend to take up the bulk of search results. Thus making the MobileRead search engine for enTourage eDGe useless for the most part.

Perhaps there is a "trick" to excluding the old enTourage forums, while still limiting search results to MobileRead's active eDGe section? Perhaps I'm asking too much from a free service, but *whew* it's terribly frustrating not to be able to find help on aspects of the eDGe that are most likely buried in these forums, though sadly inaccessible.

In the Advanced Search (see top of page for Search dropdown) you can select which Forums to search, and there is also an option whether to include child forums or not.

By the way, welcome!

You can also search within a thread, which is sometimes useful!

As others have mentioned use the search "advance" option, but why frustrated with the data from the archive? After all it contains much more of the original findings.

Thanks everyone, I got it figured out. There IS a separate search option for the current eDGe forum, as well as the old forums...I just needed to put on my glasses and scroll down a bit more.

"why frustrated with the data from the archive? After all it contains much more of the original findings."

Are you suggesting that the current forum is redundant? Okay, for now on I'll limit my searches/reading to the old forums. I had no idea; thanks for the tip.

No, no, Zazoo!! It's all good!

Some of the info on the old forum hasn't been repeated, but some of the info on the new forum actually is new!! By the way, I think you can trust what Alefor said in the old forum post you found. I'm not 100% sure, but if it were me I might gamble $15 on the chance that stylus would work.

And don't hesitate to ask if you can't find what you need.

P.S. I love your avatar!

Every tutu has a silver lining.

Good to know, but actually I don't do eBay. Just thought it might be useful for others here, who do.

It's one of the predisgested avatars provided by MobileRead. Thought it would be a fun choice...especially for a dude...who's not gay (I think). 2 pirrouettes for you...wheeeee! :\

(And yes, I'm a Linux buff, the penguin theme did not go over my head. Good thing, too, since penguins can't fly. But as you can clearly see: they sure can dance!)
