  • Yeah that feature sucks too. It used to bring up all information, now it only seems to go to Groups.

  • You don't use the search box anymore. You tediously search through your questions/answers to find what you're looking for. It's been that way for a while now.

  • Faster and easier way. Go to google. Decide what you're searching for, say you want to look for posts by fiat with nuns in them. In the search box you'd type
    +fiatpax +nun
    after that, on the same line, you put this exactly: site:www.cafemom.com/answers
    If there's something you want to leave out, you put that word with a -, so fiat and nuns, but not the word "singular" would look like this:
    +fiatpax +nun -singular site:www.cafemom.com/answers

  • I use the "search answers" thing up under the "New & Interesting" tab.
    Does that go to groups, too?

  • Does that go to groups, too?

    Nope, the one on the left goes to Answers only, the one on the right goes to Groups only (even though it's placed like it should be site-wide), and the mom search is hidden about 5 layers deep, but it's still there somewhere.

  • Wow, nothing like making a site difficult and complicated to navigate, eh? I can't find half this stuff.
