Searching within a topic
« on: December 03, 2021, 02:44:03 pm »
Once a thread gets enough posts (replies) the "All" goes away and it is no longer possible to use a browser's search feature to find specific words within the story. Elliquiy's search feature returns everything within a board. Is there a way (even if it's a hack) to narrow an Elliquiy search to a particular topic by ID?

Have you tried searching inside the search bar feature while in the thread? For example, if I search for the word 'dog,' in my finders seekers thread, it'll only bring back results from that specific thread.

Not sure how I overlooked that. Thank you so much, Flower!

If you re searching a thread with very long posts, it can be quicker to click the "print" button at the top of the thread and then  press the "control" key and the "f" key together anywhere in the text input that is displayed.  That opens a small search bar at the bottom left of the window where you can input your search term. Using the up and down arrows on that search bar you can go directly to each instance of the search term without having to scroll endlessly.
