How to use VGuitarForums Search Engine
« on: January 25, 2011, 02:43:06 PM »

For best navigation , search, and using quotes in posts  - I advise use these settings on your  forum Profile page




Anytime you want to Search for anything here at vguitarforums, be sure to


1) Click to the Forum Home page:(Click "Home" tab on upper left )
http://www.vguitarforums.com/smf/index.php



2) Then locate the empty "Search Box" just to the left of the "Search" button on the upper right


3) Enter your search terms in that empty box.

4)  Then click the "Search" Button.

or use


5)Advanced Search -  click the Magnifying Glass  icon to the left of the empty search box,


 you will get the "Advanced Search" Screen here:

If you omit or skip any of the above steps, the search tool here is buggy and rather useless!

However, If you following the steps above, you will have better results

Now that we are over 7,000 members, and we have a fair amount of exposure, the restrictions on Guest Viewing the posts on the forum means total newbies must sign up to read and learn important concepts.

Id rather they take the time to read everything they need to know FIRST  - AND USE SEARCH before Joining and posting the same  question that has been answered before - dozens of times already.

Another tidbit of advice, Since this is our 7th year of VGuitarForums, several of our topics may be best found using Google  - instead of the crippled SMF search tool. The SMF Search engine here sucks - I have no control.


Use your search tool of choice (You do use a search engine right?)  Bing, Yahoo, Google, etc - search anything GR-55 or VG-99 related and the URL link to the VGuitarforums answer is right on the page 1 


For example, using Google to search for "GR-55 Guitar to MIDI" results in several hits that include the appropriate post here at VGuitarForums.

For better results search on  "VGuitarForums : {insert topic of interest here}"
