Searching for small words

Postby AndyPat » 16 Sep 2018, 4:48pm

How frustrating that I can't search for small words that are not common. Like AM5 or X-RF8. The hyphen in X-RF8 is probably misunderstood as well. Perhaps there is a clever way of doing this?

Use Google.

Type your search term and then type site colon then forum.cyclinguk.org

Take the abbreviations TSR or AMS for instance.
TSR site:forum.cyclinguk.org
AMS site:forum.cyclinguk.org

Great tip thanks. Shame the forum isn't wise enough to search itself like that!
