HELP!

I have had this problem before—I don't know how to find anything on the search function including my own threads.  I have been trying to locate a thread I posted around May of 2018, which was about a half fretless banjo in the Arts & Crafts style, based on Greene & Greene details.  I have searched "Arts& Crafts", "Greene & Greene", "half-fretless" and I find nothing whatsoever.

It has to be in there somewhere.  I get plenty of images on Google images, but they all link yo my website, not the BHO, even though they are the same images.

Obviously, I am doing something wrong.

Try searching -levan half fretless-, then at the top of the results page select "Archived Topics". You'll probably then have to search through dozens of pages.

Thanks—after several tries, I found it by searching "levan arts & crafts"—the name of the thread was "Arts & Crafts Style Banjo Project".

Mysterious how "arts & crafts" yielded nothing.

Anyway, I found it and now know I have to use my name.

Ampersands (&) sometimes cause things you don't expect with searches. When you are searching and you get to your list of results, take a look at the top of the page. It will tell you what it thinks you are searching for. When I search for arts & crafts, it comes back with Search Results For 'arts '.

That's exactly what I got - "arts".  When I searched for "crafts"  I got a bunch of really wide ranging stuff.  I think there's a lot to what you name your threads.

Try here: banjohangout.org/forum/search....R_ID=7241

Also, you can go to your home page and under Activity, scroll to the bottom and click on See all non-archived forum posts by Ken LeVan. That should bring up the above URL.

Ken, I think it brings up any thread you've either posted as an OP or just posted to.   I'm not positive and if I'm wrong, someone will set us straight.
