Using the PP.O Search Function
[size=13pt]Using the PP.O Search Function[/size]
Because of the amount of articles and duplicate articles being posted, we need a little training on how to use the PP.O search feature.
This is a tutorial that will help you find if something has been posted or a topic is being discussed.
It will also help the forums stay neat and organized.
Select the "Search" tab at the top of the page:[/size]

Enter the word you will be searching for in the text box.
**Note** use words that are contained in the article that are not very common in order to get better/more precise results. Then click the "Advanced Search" link:[/size]

Now click in the box that states, "Search in topic subjects only".
In the Search Order select the dropdown arrown and select "Most Recent Topics First".
Click the "Choose a board to search in, or search all" link and then select the forums that your topic will most likely have been posted.
Set the number of days.
If it is recent, set between 0 and a few days in order to furthur filter. Then click "Search".[/size]

Scan your search results and see what matches you are given.
Sometimes it may take a little while.
Using a "not-so-common" word will help you.
Your search word will be highlighted in yellow:[/size]

If there is any article titled, "Childress attemps to readjust offense" it would be wise to use the word readjust as your search word because it is not a common word.
It may take some practice but hopefully we can eliminate some of the clutter and locks.
