Default Is there an advanced search?

I wanted to search the phrase "just beer". I am thinking of doing a couple buckets of beer for the masses.

I know of a couple touted on this site: Ed Wort's Haus Ale & Skeeter Pee.

The search turned up what appears to be the phrase "just beer" in someone's signature. Pages of it.

I thought maybe there was a way to search by just thread title or omit the catchy phrases from the search.

Any help would be appreciated.

(I'll take suggestions for recipies/threads also)

Thanks,
Bill

Can you explain in layman's terms in a few sentences what you just did there?

Thanks by-the-way.

This should explain it better than I ever could. But if you have further questions please ask. Google is the best search engine specially if you can fully use its features.

I think you have to be a premium member on this site to do advanced search through the site. Most forums I am on encourage members to use search before posting, but HBT seems to prefer people repost consistently. Not a gripe, just observation.

As carrolte points out, you can use google, but it seems the advanced search can do things like sort by username and such. My google-fu is lacking, so I don't know if you can do the same through google.

I have not had any luck using more than a single word in the advanced search on this site. Maybe I'm doing it wrong.

The advanced search sucks.. at least in my experience. The search function in the top right corner of the page, in the beer mug is fantastic! It's the only search I use.

...click on the link in post #2 guys.

It seemed almost self explanatory after that.

Would you believe I've never noticed that search area up there? It's kind of hidden. I have started using the Google option in the regular search and it works pretty good.
