Search for "0 replies" threads only inside of the forum


I would like to be able to search for the 0 replies threads only inside of the forum I'm interested in. Is this possible without using "advanced search"? The "0 replies" link shows all the threads in the site with 0 replies . Thank you.

You can add "include=x" (where x is the forumid) to the 0 reply query to get what you're looking for.

O.K., but where is are the search syntax and instructions? When one clicks on "Search", all we see is a text entry box, a "go" button, and a link to "Advanced Search". No "Help" or "Format" or "Hints" button. Even in "Advanced Search" there is no description on how the search string should be formatted.

(As far as I can tell, the only "option" is an implicit or between whitespace delimited tokens in the "Search" box, and quotes are ignored.)

The "LinuxQuestions How-to" entry mentions "Search," but nothing I could see about search formatting.

Oh, and what happened to the "Googol Search" option?

Where is that query? I can find only the link in Quick Links...

yeah- a "how to get the most out of this search engine" article would be nice.

google (the company, googol is the large number ) is an option only available to contributing members, though when the search was hairy in the old LQ jeremy made it available to all users. I believe you can use google to just search specific sites using the site: keyword in the search box.

We're rewriting the googlesearch as the SOAP module we were using doesn't seem to be fully compatible with PHP 5. I agree that a "LQ search" LA would be extremely useful - any volunteers?

hehehe ms/l I actually put this as one of the things the 7th/8th graders had to find using a search engine. It reminded them that spelling is important. Also, looking for the national flower of Australia when the one for Austria was required...

sorry, that was offtopic.

what I meant was that I believe the google search was opened up to all members (not just CM's) when the server croaked. I don't know if this is still the case. It might just be a contributing member (CM) thing.

As of this moment, the LQ googlesearch is actually out of commission (the PHP5 SOAP module seems to have some issues). We hope to have it back up soon. Although I did open it to everyone while the search was having major issues, due to the limit Google puts on API calls that is unfortunately something we can't do long term.

Thanks to David, the googlesearch is now back:
