I am really bummed out with the search engine on this forum. With just about every search I try, I get a message saying the word I am using is too common on the forum so it won't produce any search results at all. It does this even when I select a single forum topic and a specific user name. There can't be all that many hits when the search is limited to a specific user name so I am frustrated.

Google is your friend...
Try this (with Google): gopinball "Slam's newest posting" for example...

And, for more complicated search, -> https://www.google.fr/advanced_search (in french, but just take your natal langage).

Popotte,

Although I don't read French, your site didn't seem to help much. I did find a way for Google to search this forum and nothing else. You just enter the following into the search criteria:

site:http://gopinball.com [enter search here]

Or you can click on the following link and replace "(enter search here)" with your search criteria:

https://www.google.com/search?sclient=psy-ab&btnG=Search&q=site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fgopinball.com+(enter+search+here)

It seems that the search engine for PinSimDB.org has its problems too. I performed a search for "Tribute to the 80's" and then "Tribute to the 80". I got no hits. So I decided the search for "Tribute" and only got 1 hit. It was this table:

STEPHEN HAWKING TRIBUTE Revision 1.1

Anyway, I discovered that my method of using Google to search the forum also works well for PinSimDB.org:

https://www.google.com/?gws_rd=ssl#q=site:http:%2F%2Fwww.pinsimdb.org+(enter+search+here)

Hi,

The 'Tribute to the 80' is a collection of tables. Click advanced search and enter Tribute into Collection field, it would works !

Basic search only search in table name, sorry.

Have a nice day,
LvR

You are right. I didn't know that Collection was a separate field.

Thanks,

George
