Hi all,

First, let me say how exciting it is to have our Forum membership growing everyday. Welcome to all of those I have not had a chance to correspond with.

Second, while I encourage you to post your thoughts as much as possible, I will ask for your help in keeping the amount of duplicate threads to a minimum.

If you wish to post about a specific song or album, please take a moment or two to search out an existing thread in which to post your thoughts. This way we don't end up with multiple threads that address the same topic.

What works best for me is the 'Advanced Search' option. This is located on the left side of any Forum page underneath the field where you would enter your search criteria.

  1. Type in the criteria surrounded by an asterisk (*) on each side. For example *yesterday*
  2. Click on 'Advanced Search'
  3. Click on the button for 'Topic titles only'
  4. Click on the 'Search' button

When you do this, you will get a list of all topics that contain the word 'yesterday'. The example I gave returned 6 different threads. If you don't see a thread that your thought would pertain to, feel free to start a new one.

Thanks to everyone for your cooperation.

PS - I did a search for the words *New Topics* before posting this one - just in case you were wondering.a-hard-days-night-george-10

Yeah, thanks Zig - don't know that I've ever noticed that advanced search option before! Probably wasted many minutes (hours?) of my life here running inefficient searches as a result.

One day, a tape-op got a tape on backwards, he went to play it, and it was all "Neeeradno-undowarrroom" and it was "Wow! Sounds Indian!"

I'll keep that in mind Zig.  It's good because it refocuses my attention on older topics.  I just found one in fact from 5 months ago, where I think Joe posted a YouTube link to "Brian Epstein blues" -- however, the link no longer works.

 

Joe, do you have a new link?

 

I did an Advanced search on it just in case, for all forums --

No idea about the Epstein song. I could look on YouTube for another source, but so could you!

After wrangling with this idea in another thread (said idea was prompted by a comment by our esteemed administrator), I now think that using the search box on the Beatles Bible homepage works better than the search box/function that is a part of the forum. Using the homepage search box will take you to the exact page in a thread where your search terms appear instead of just sending you to p. 1 of the thread. Also, the results list provide the little summary of the page you are linking to, just like you see in Google (very helpful)

If anyone has a different experience, please let me know. I adore talking about search tips. Guess it's the librarian in me.
