Search only in the discussion forums? (4 posts)

    I would like to search only in the discussion forums for the latest topics, but the search function located at the top right of every page seems to generate a lot meaningless results. No matter what you search for, the same couple of pages come up -- the announcement of wordpress 1.5.

    This means that, 1) either I don't know the correct searching methodology, or, 2) the search doesn't work.

    So my question is this: Can the kick-butt Yahoo! Web Search get any better and/ or can I use the search box more appropriately?

    Thanks for your time.

    Yeah, they know about it, but it wasn' fixed. Yet.
    I use Google instead:
    site:wordpress.org/support keyword keyword

    Thanks, I tried to search if anyone had mentioned this but all I found was the 1.5 announcement etc. Frustrating! Your google method looks good.

    Thanks again.

    Thanks for the Google suggestion, too. Too frustrating that the embedded search doesn't work, though...
