With so many new people joining this site, I thought it might be helpful to show how to quickly search the forums for information before starting new repetitive threads. Many times, if not most times, the answer to a question lies in one of 3 places, just waiting for someone to read it: MacRumors Guides Searching the MR Forums with the Google search engine to see what has already been discussed Searching the internet, preferably with Google If you don't find what you want, and you click to post a new thread, I believe many people miss what's written immediately above the message box: Are you asking a question? Try searching first. Answers to many questions can be easily found. Otherwise, choose a Descriptive Title: Do not use a generic title such as "Help please" or "What to do" or "Need advice" -- be specific! There are a few ways to search the MR Forums: There is a search drop-down box on this site. There is also an Advanced Search on this site, with more options There is a Google search on this site, but it has some limitations, such as the lack of Google's Advanced Search capabilities and any Google search preferences you may have, such as 100 results per page, etc. There is MRoogle, which is nothing more than a simple way to use Google to search, automatically limiting the search to these forums. It's very effective. I'm going to show you how to set up a right-click and search function that will make looking up anything quicker, using SafariStand. I'll leave it to a current Firefox 3 user to post similar instructions that work with Firefox. First, download and install SafariStand, an add-on to Safari. Next, on your Safari toolbar, click Stand > SafariStand Setting... Click "Quick Search" on the left column You can either modify an existing entry, or click "new" in the lower right corner to create a new entry. Double-click in the Title field of the entry to enter a title, such as "MacRumors" Double-click on the "http://" or on any other text in the URL field to edit the field. Copy and paste this line http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=@key+site:forums.macrumors.com&as_qdr=y&btnG=Search Be sure to check the box under "ON" in the column before the title, so the new search will appear in your menu. You can also uncheck any entries you don't want to appear on the menu. Click the red button to close the window. Now when you see a term anywhere on the web that you want to search the forums for, highlight the term and right-click, then, under Quick Search, click "MacRumors" It will open a new tab and search the forums for the term you highlighted. This search will automatically return only forum responses from the past year, but on the Google results page, you can click the "past year" and change it to whatever time frame you choose. I hope this helps everyone's enjoyment and productive use of the Forums!
