|Tour Search Feature|
|Sunday, October 26, 2008|
Using search, you can locate articles containing the word(s) you choose. But it operates a little different from other search functions, such as Google.
When you want to search for a single word, type your word, and press "enter" on your keyboard. A list of all articles containing that word will appear. You can then choose the one you want to look at by clicking on it's title. If that turns out not to be the one you wanted, use your browser's "back" button to return to the list.
At the top of the list, you will see your search word and some options. One of the options is Exact phrase. Here, The Daily Recap's search function deviates somewhat from most search engines. Let's say you want to search for Joyce B. Clark. In most search engines, you can surround the exact phrase with quotes, and the search will be made for that exact phrase. But on The Daily Recap, if you do that and choose Exact phrase, it will search for the quote marks as well as the words. In this case, you need to include the period after the B as well. Note that if you search for a user's name, their Profile will also be listed. In the Profile, you can find their phone number, if it's not unpublished.
Other helpful options are also present above the in initial results -- try them out to see how they work.
