Hello Everyone,

Welcome to my thread. All of us know that there is a search option on the upper right side of forum. If we have any queation on our mind then we can easily search the answer by clicking on forum search engine. Unfortunately we don't know the proper use of this search option. Even I got a lot of new things about this search option today which was unknown to me. Today i reaearch sbout it after seeing the reply of our forum admin.  

note that if you use the search box in the upper right while in a topic, it searches only that topic.

If you are reading a topic and use search button during that time then search engine will search on that topic only.
So if you search something others which isn't relate with topic then you will not get any result. You can get confused about your search but it doesn't mean that this question has no answer. You can get it easily again.

How could you use search button properly?

1. If you want to search anything on a specific thread then you will have to open that thread first. After that
you can use search button to get all your answer easily.  

For example you want to search your stacked bitcoin address. First you have to open this thread:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=996318.0

Then you will have to use the search button for getting your answer easily.

2. If you want to search on a specific board then you will have to open that board first. After that you can use search button to get all your answer easily. As an example you want to search something about trading. Then first you will have to open Trading discussion to get all your answer.

3. If you can't decide to where to search about your question then you can use forums homepage search button directlly for getting your answer. This search result will be a combine answer where it can be kinda difficult for you to find your one.
 
4. Use Advance search option for more advantage. You can make google search, seach by user, search by message age and many more here.

Special note: Search option will not show you any non public board. For example If you are below member rank then you can't search on Investigation.

Just a quick thing to bear in mind: we often perform a Google search when searching for forum related information, out of general habit, as opposed to using the forum’s search capabilities that you have enumerated. Now that the Bitcointalk phishing site is back (the ".to" version), it is easy to end-up on it after performing a Google seach. One needs to be very wary with sites of the kind, especially when one proceeds to provide their account credentials.

If one is prone to using Google directly to perform a search on the forum, it is advisable to state the site parameter to delimit the search scope:
Code:
site:https://bitcointalk.org <search string>

This is a wonderful guide, and very easy to understand.
I have actually been educated by it,cos from your explanations it seems I've been searching wrongly most times which makes it difficult for me.
Didn't know opening the particular board makes it easier,i always use the forum homepage,and I hardly get any favorable feedback.
Good thread

We have one more earlier comprehensive guide explaining how to do the forum  search.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=3127909.msg

I think you can merge both of them because OP of that guide does not look active now.

Realitiy is no one bother to use search button. People's just like create new thread even they need to ask how to earn merit. Never try to search or even read sticked post. First we need to change our behaviours so that we can use this forum properly. We should encourag to search before make any new questions. However well write OP. Perhaps newbie could learn from it.

Great information you posted here. As a beginner i also used have problems with the search button, little did I know that i search only the page you just opened and as CoolCryptovator points out. So many people are very lazy to search through the forum for answers and topics that have already been discussed before. It's a very useful function that could help to reduce creation of repetitive topics.

Maybe because of no one gave guidelines like this how to use it properly.Even myself just uses google search with bitcointalk keyword in it because I feels forum search button is very slow and not accurate.

True the forum search is slow sometime especially if you use the advanced search feature. It may sometimes even end up displaying a page with a message that server is taking too long to respond which can be so annoying if you are in a hurry to such.
Searching of google with the format DdmrDdmr has suggested is probably the best way at the moment.

Mine was different, sometimes if I used the forum search bar it just direct me to many links and will have hard time clicking every link. So the easiest way is searching on google, and it's hell more than easy.

Though as for the newbies, maybe they don't easily see the search bar, maybe we should make it flashy and glittery for them and to avoid repeated threads.  Tongue

Yeah you can get the full advantage of forum search option. Its really helpful to complete your investigation about anything before starting a new topic.

Specially for new members it can help them in many ways. They can know easily about forum, users background, remarkable stories and many more. Just what they need to know is the proper use of search option.

Just asking this because it looks like it can be use to find plagiarism post?

Bitcoin will become stable soon and altcoin will keep increasing this coming months.

You don't need to use the search button from the forum for that. Just put the text you want to check in quotation marks and google it.
Here is an example of one of your posts:

It does. You can also find topics that will help you take advantage on using search feature. Sample is [How-to] the Search button.

Personally, I used https://edubirdie.com/plagiarism-checker and https://spinbot.com/ when checking plagiarism case(s), which is 100% good reports on my report history. Today, I have one pending plagiarism case who used text spinning.

EDIT:
^ Plus, @Pmalek technique will also help you.

If you are reading a topic and use search button during that time then search engine will search on that topic only.
So if you search something others which isn't relate with topic then you will not get any result.

I believe this does not only apply to topics/threads. Also on boards. If you use the search button when on a specific board, you would only get responses related to that board. Only when on the home page can you search the entire forum.

This method works but I think it needs to add site:URL to find the post only in bitcointalk forum.

What I want to know is the other tricks of using our search button to find plagiarism just like going to his post history and shows all post(Show all doesn't work or no feature like this) and manually find the plagiarism.
This Show all feature is also my problem I can't find this feature when trying to check the post history.

Also what I wan't to know is how to show all his post history in one page just like before that it has a feature like "all" button but right now I can't find this.

Bitcoin will become stable soon and altcoin will keep increasing this coming months.

You could use duckduckgo.com too.

You can use duckduckgo.com as well. By not tracking your searches and not tracking you anywhere you visit on the internet, I would recommend using it instead of google.
They use the same codes as google. Just enter the terms you want to search followed by:

Code:
site:https://bitcointalk.org

So if you want to search for satoshi, it would look like this:
Code:
satoshi site:https://bitcointalk.org
satoshi

You can search in specific sections too. You just need to put the right number of the section.

Altcoin discussion is number 67.
Code:
site:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=67
Ethereum

Bounties is number 238
Code:
site:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=238
pay me to

Development & Technical Discussion is number 6
Code:
site:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=6
To find discussions about fee on Technical Discussion fee site:https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=6

Thanks, these are the kind of tools I have been looking for. I will try checking them out... Most of the plagiarism checks esp the free versions have limits of only 1000 words

Until now I still use google to search for threads and add the bitcointalk.org at the end of the name of the topic I want to search. Example is that I want to search for a thread like "how to create a wallet on myetherwallet bitcointalk.org" then I'll start looking for the results if there is a thread like that. IMOO it works fine with me and most of the results are from bitcointalk.org forum.
