Smile Yeah

Yeah,i think so, i think if you type in the search bar what you want you can probably find it. that's what i usually do if i am trying to find an old thread that i commented on or something like that, or you can always go to your email and find the update and click the link to it when someone else comments on it. that's another way to do it.

"Advanced Search" is still there. Google is just under it now. When I click, there's a box for "Search", under that a link for "Advanced Search" and under that a box for a Google search.

If you are going to use advance search make sure you are looking for somthing specific. the google seach tool is more for general search stuff, new people and the public.
Its partly there to help google index the site better but as well when a new person joins and searches UFC, Dana White, MMA, Gracie. very general very broad terms that will show up in probably half of the 63,500+ threads it can cuase the search to hang on a query (take too f*ng long) and just crash or lock up the search tool for everyone else.

Similiar things will happen when you decide to show posts by user and the user is active and has over 10,000 posts.

This is why seach and new posts usually gets turned off durring a main PPV event, to keep the traffic that is drawn to here before and after a major PPV flowing.

It is in the middle of the dropdown that comes up when you click 'search' at the top of the page. A link for 'advanced search'. This is the link it gives:

http://www.mmaforum.com/search.php

That is where you go to breakdown the search by specific forums or members or what have you.

I know the google thing sucks but the majority of people who are searching on this site are not searching for specific things its amazing how many times just "UFC" was searched on here before we made the google search the main one.
