Hi Site Feedback.

If I enter:
insertDocumentFromUrl
into the search or advanced search, no results are found. If I use google to do the equivalent, I get lots of matches. I know this String exists verbatim in several posts. What's happening?


Thanks.
Paulj.

I inserted the string (in this forum's search with spaces and between ".." and got around 4000 matches. (I admit tI didn't read them all ...)

Hi Bill.

What was the search string you used? I'm not sure what you mean about spaces and "..".


Thanks.

I wrote "Insert Document From Url" That is, with " at the start and " at the finish. AndIi left spaces between the words.

Hi Billbc.

Thanks again. There are lots of results as you mentioned, but they don't contain insertImageFromUrl. Since it is the name of a function I am particularly trying to find, putting spaces between the words is not helpful. Putting the " characters in doesn't seem to help either - it seems to match any quote in the post.


Regards.
Paulj.

I revive this thread because I have an example of unsuccessful search.

I tried this:
Search query = GetPrivateProfileString
Whatever other options you use the search will not find any message. (Maybe it will find this one !)

Yet, there are several messages:
Declaring Win API calls http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=19936
Using DLL in a Macro http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?p=67454
Can't read a .INI file ! http://www.oooforum.org/forum/viewtopic.phtml?t=10237

I thought that the search function ignored some formatted structures like code or italic, but the first message does no use any formating.
