Searching for Trip by Keyword

Postby voidczech » Mon Dec 28, 2009 11:37 am

Wasn't there an option in the old web format that allowed for us to search for trips by keyword?

Sometimes I come across a posting about a trip that sound very interesting, but because the person only includes the title and not the trip code, it takes a long time to find the trip (if I find it at all).

Is there a way to search by title that I'm missing?

Hey Simone,

It's still there. If you click on Advanced Search, you will see the search by keyword option. If you go back to the Board Index, then click Active Topics, you will see "return to advanced search" near the top. Just click that.

Hey Daniel ....

I've been selecting advanced search and these are the options that come up:

    Region
    Country
    Budget
    Duration Days
    Departs After
    Returns Before
    Trip Style
    Service Level
    Phyical Grading
    Activity
    Sort By
    Trip Code

At no point does it tell me "Search by Keyword"....However, I think I just figured it out .....

Whether you do a basic or advanced search, I just put the keywords in the main Search box (top right, just below your username/logout/agents) and presto .... success.....

Thanks!

Hey Reditor....

Yes, I was! (it's funny how easy it is to overlook these things when writing, as though everyone is supposed to know exactly what I was thinking/doing when I wrote it).

Sounds good that the test environment's been successful... can't wait to see it when it goes live ....
