Forums

On the new website, is it possible to do a search just in the podcast library. Using the search box I seem to get results from the forums also, but I know there's a particular podcast i'm looking for.

Is this possible? Or might it be a future feature?

Thanks again for a great service!

Put your search terms in the search box, hit "Search" and then, on the search results page, hit the tab titled "Search Manager Tools" (instead of the default "Content")

That should get you results much closer to what you're looking for.

There is also the "Advanced Search" (on the search results page). I'm not proficient yet, but it might deliver exactly what you need.

Let us know how it goes.

littlejus,

John's advice should help. I also think that the ability to search a specific set of the content available on the site is a good idea. On the list it goes ... ;-)

Thanks for a great suggestion.

Best Regards,
Mike

John: Living up to your name, I see; the "hack" you provided worked as good enough. I used the "Search Manager Tools" feature you mentioned and, although the search results still featured some spurious content, I managed to find the specific podcast faster. Thanks for the tip!

Mike: Since the advent of the new website I have become a far more frequent visitor. So I'm very pleased to hear that I could make a small contribution in the way of a good suggestion. Speaking of contributions, is there any way a software developer like myself could contribute even more? I'm just thinking at the moment I've got a two month sabbatical coming up and, in spite of my wife's chagrin, I'm looking for ways to keep myself occupied. Contributing to Manager Tools would, in my opinion, be a worthy cause. Perhaps you might PM me if there's any way I might help.
