    Howdy,
    Newbie here with a real basic forum question:
    Is it possible to use the search here to search for something as you do in Google or Boinc searches? For example, if I wanted to search the internet for info on how to use the search button on my Bionic phone, I might enter "how to use search button on Bionic" in the Google search field in Firefox. But when I click on the search button in the forum, it asks for 'keywords'. And if I enter what I'd enter in Google search, it brings up every discussion/thread which contains any of those words...
    thanks,
    cheers,
    jt

    Welcome to Droid Forums!! A lot of time when I am searching and want a real specific type of thread I will actually use Google, enter in what I want to find, and then put Droid Forums after it. Give it a shot and see how it works for you.

    Thanks JSM...,
    Come to think of it, someone else suggested that a long time ago but I'd forgotten it. It worked then. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
    cheers,

    No problem. Sometimes all we need is a little refresher course :biggrin:
