A search on Flinders Ranges gave me threads containing:
* Flinders
* Ranges
*Flinders Ranges
How do I get posts only relating to Flinders Ranges.
I have tried:
* 'Flinders Ranges'
* Flinders and Ranges

Thanks for any help
Robyn

Hi John,
Your still picking up some threads not related to Flinders ranges eg:
* UHF CB Handheld
* Selwyn Creek, Humffray River
How did you set up the link in your follow up?

Hi John

flinders ranges would work exactly the same as flinders+ranges, the plus is assumed.

so This Link returns the same as yours

using parenthesis forces the words inside the parenthesis to be searched alone so "flinders ranges" will focus on the whole phrase not one or the other word.

I believe the search returns threads with the most matches to the words highest in the search.

The search help HERE sets it all out reasonably clearly I reckon.

hahahaha David has links when the words sear ch hel p without the spaces are typed, he is a clever bunny isn't he

Dang,

I also meant to say I like your catchphrase:

Antiquis temporibus, nati tibi similes in rupibus ventosissimis exponebantur ad necem - obviously a Corey related statement

In the good old days, children like you were left to perish on windswept crags.

Although I prefer:

Orationem pulchram non habens, scribo ista linea in lingua Latina.

Bonz,
Like John's search, your search also brought up the thread, UHF CB Handheld, which has only included the word, 'range'.

Sorry Bonz,
I read your reply wrongly. Just like George, you are saying to search "Flinders Ranges" .
Thanks

Bonz, I had the catchphrase before C*%^$ but I actually put the translation in the other day and had a message from a member that it was prolly illegal in todays times but I was right.

Vah! Denuone Latine loquebar? Me ineptum. Interdum modo elabitur.

G'day Robyn - how goes?

The approach I use in a search like this is to use the expression "flinders ranges".

The issue that we all have is that this type of search will bring up all threads which contain "flinders ranges" (within the specified date parameter), irrespective of the subject of the thread - you'll get hundreds of hits, however most of them may not be of use to you.

If there is a better way I'd also like to know about it - is there some way to search specifically on the subject line of the thread?
