Searches restricted to Mach4
« on: June 30, 2019, 02:37:08 PM »
Trying to find something in the forums for Mach4 is very difficult. The high level partitioning of Mach4 helps, but the search tab still searches everything, so a keyword finds a lot of Mach3 info and then it becomes difficult to find something that works for Mach4.  Since Mach3 and 4 are really different, there should be a way to restrict searches to only the Mach4 portion of the forum. Using Mach4 as a keyword does not always work. As an example,  searches for "USB camera"  get lots of hits, but they are almost all Mach3 and so it is difficult to find a mach4 post if it exists. When I add Mach4 as a keyword, I get no hits which seems unlikely.

Why not use advanced search and limit the search to the the Mach4 General Discussion board?
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Thanks, that was what I was looking for, but did not see that capability in the fine print.
