i don't have Google so i have to do it the manual way.

but if i want to look at Fixed Point Math.

i would use: Fixed Point Math site:GameDev.net

right?


I'm a bit confused. What do you mean you don't have google?

And using the query 'Fixed Point Math site:GameDev.net' is how the current search feature on GDnet works (I think), so if you go to the seach page on GDnet and type in "allintitle: YOU_SEARCH_QUERY -user -profile" then it should work.

I am currently trying to figure out if there is a way to group results which are from the same url, but nothing yet.

Well for you, I'd just click on Ben's link and type in your seach - you end up getting this: Link. Just as boolean has said [smile].

I propose a new thread be made that shows this way of searching GameDev be made "stickied" across the boards (a new thread for it's cleanliness). A lot of people have not seen this thread, so I am giving it a *bump* as well as asking the staff/mods in helping make this great method known around the GameDev community. That or just sticky this one [lol]. Just another suggestion!

STAFF OR MODS:

With the amount of people who are being referred to this thread when they need to search GDnet, would it be possible to make this sticky?

Or perhaps adding a link to the Search Page?

Hey, just a quick idea. If the search function is being abused by people spamming the hell out of it, I noticed that a car audio forum I was at tonight limits people to using the search only once every 30 seconds. Could this be something that would help fix the search feature on GDnet?
