how to search database of Forum

Recommended Posts

Some time ago there was a discussion about the kinds of tea foreigners (British?) in Thailand like.

I remember one of the tea brand names mentioned was "Heladiv"  ...this is not a common word and I do not understand that I cannot find this discussion when I put this brand name in the "search engine" /  it is not about this particular tea...I simply want to find back the whole discussion

The search function on Thaivisa sucks. Often have the same problem. You know the content is there because you read it before but the search function brings up next to nothing, if anything at all.

i just did a search for the word "tea" and there were only two pages of results. obviously that is impossible.

i did not see the topic you are looking for.

Exactly, I started a thread maybe a month ago, used the search function quoting a word in the title ( like the op, not a common word ) it did bring up a few hits but my thread was not amongst them.

Tried the ” content I started “ button, only goes back 10 days ??

If they managed to fix the search engine then there wouldn’t be so many repeated threads about the same subject ??

It is best to use google or other search engine. type in the search term(s) plus :site:thaivisa.com"

 

Doing that for the term Heladiv yeilds:

 

https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/1107587-british-tea-drinkers-of-thailand/page/7/

 

and also

 

https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/883158-heladiv-english-breakfast-teabags/

 

https://forum.thaivisa.com/topic/341860-tea-bags/

 

the first is probably what you are looking for

I just use a normal google search with the  appropriate words plus 'thaivisa'. Normally works  just fine  - per the above link.

Yes that works ( found my thread started July 19th that way ).

Found putting Thaivisa.com before the keyword gives you better results than the other way round.

Yes you got it in the first link (British tea drinkers) you mention ....but what kind of words did you use in the Thaivisa search box?

Thank you !
