Using titles to make posts more searchable...

Post by Denise Cold on Fri Jan 06, 2012 9:20 pm

Fellow forum members. I was frustrated by trying to find the first "baby cake" post and failed. If you can, at the top of the topic there is a title and ESPECIALLY if you are starting a new topic, could you please put in some key words like "Fat Max" or "one-stroke" or something so that we can search for it later on. The search function is a little weird and hard to get results with because it brings up EVERYTHING!

Try to avoid generic "I have a question.." as your header so that if there are a lot of posts we know if we want to open and have something of value to share or when we are searching for a topic, it will show in the header on the search.

Thanks ahead of time...

D.

The "search" function on this forum is strangely limited, so I never use it. The best way to look for what you want is to go to google and type:
[search term] site:facepaintforum.com

just get rid of the brackets, for example:
baby cakes site:facepaintforum.com

That way, you're not limited by what's in the title!
it took me to the following posts:
