Did you know that searching was fun, and it makes you look cool? It will help you find the person of your dreams, help you to lose weight, and will make your hair soft and manageable all day long.
No it won’t.
What searching WILL do is help everyone in the forums, by cutting down on a lot of duplicated threads. It also shows that you are willing to put in even a small amount of effort to solve your own problems. If you get stuck, or don’t understand something, then by all means post a question.
Here’s a quick tip on how to use Google to search this forum:
Fire up your favourite browser, preferably FIREFOX, and surf over to Google. Once there, in the search form enter this:
NO SPACES in the site:wordpress.org part.
So, for example, if you are having a database problem you would do this:
site:wordpress.org unable to connect to database
and I guarantee you will get a list of threads that will point you to the solution.
While you’re at it, make sure that when you do post a question, you create a post title that is relevant, because
Help! Help!doesn’t cut it. If you have a problem with Step 3 of the install, then make your title
Step 3 install problem. What could be easier? This will also help future users find a solution to their problems when they too google the site and see a bunch of threads with that title. It saves time and effort for us all.
Oh, yeah, one last thing…please supply a link to your site so we can see for ourselves what is going on.
Thanks for your consideration. We now return you to your regularly-scheduled program.
