    So I decided to put this tutorial together so new members could familiarize themselves with the site and learn how to use it more effectively, and so existing members could link to it when dealing with someone in a thread.

    So, without further delay, here goes:

    At the top of every page on CrackBerry.com, there is a bar (header if you will) that will include functions ranging from UserCP (user control panel) to log out.



    On this header, you will also find the 'Search Forums' menu. This is where you will enter your search term and the criteria you want to search. It also includes an advanced search link at the bottom.



    Once you enter the search term and hit 'Go', CrackBerry.com will then send this query to the database and search for whatever you typed in the search box. It is very simple and straight forward. If, after searching you don't find any answers, browse the first page of threads in your device's section and look for similar posts/threads that may or may not have something/anything to do with what you're looking for. For instance, if you have a problem or question about BBM (BlackBerry Messenger), look for any posts/threads that contain the keywords: BBM, blackbery messenger, messenger, IM etc and browse through there to see if it might be a related issue being discussed by others.



    This method eliminates the clutter of members posting 1,000+ threads on subjects that have already been discussed or addressed.

    I have included a link to a video demonstrating how to use the search feature.

    Other searches and features such as contacting members or searching specific threads or forums can be done as well.





    For a thread search:



    For a specific forum search:



    I hope this helps, and I will be revising this with more details as time goes on but I wanted to put something together for members right now.

    Thanks, and happy hunting.

    Here is another thread on searching as well.

    This thread can serve as a gateway to the other thread. We can leave it open also for search related discussions too.

    If you click on your name in the forum post, there is a drop down menu that shows up and it will allow you to "See all posts made by ...". You can actually do that for any member.

    Thanks for the heads-up. There was an error in a configuration file on my new server. It has been resolved.

    Thought I'd throw this in there but once u search for something and find the links you can further search the thread. U might have 2 go from thread 2 thread 2 find what u need but its better than going page by page of all the entries. Especially handy if the thread has hundreds of entries.

    I think more people need to learn how to use this function.

    Another good trick *idk if anyone has stated it yet but...

    i've always found it easier to search on google

    ie. i am searching for help with my trackball because it won't click anymore

    go to google and type in
    trackball won't click + crackberry

    BAM brings up and ton of threads.
