Forum search

As a new user of the Forum I see no way to search so that I don't waste peoples time asking questions already answered. Am I overlooking something?

Perhaps that magnifying-glass icon near the top right corner?

And the forum heading 'web site and forum', which I suggest is a better home for this question.

Better glasses ? :slight_smile:

Yeah, that search icon at the top is certainly there, but it doesn't do quite what the OP asked, it searches all of forum.arduino.cc.

So maybe you guys can tell us how to search just one particular forum? That would be nice, thanks...

I don't think you can (I await correction). In any case, given the propensity of people to post in the wrong forum, as the OP did at first, why would you want to limit which forum you are searching and possibly missing useful results?

Usage of the standard search parameters should get you just the results from specific forums

EG. ( "website and forum" test ) exclude the brackets should just get you posts from this section and posts with the word test.

Almost any of the standard search operators will work just fine.
