Forum search

Hello I'm new to the forum and I don't know if it's me but I find the search tool sometimes does not return any results when I know there should be results. Any chance a website admin can look into it? example I search for 'X20' in classified, For Sale: Parts & Accessories and I get no hits even if I narrow it down to the last 3 month. same thing if I search for 'GPS' or 'usb'.

thank you

You'll see the search function will say something like "too short" or "too common" search criteria. Just google "mastercraft teamtalk xyz" and it should yield results.

google works but I cannot seem to narrow my search down to only classified/accessories section of the forum...

Would be nice if I could search for parts only relevant to my MC X20.

Agreed. We get a lot of questions/ complaints about searching here.

Google advanced search will do this for you.

Go here:
https://www.google.com/advanced_search

And enter the web address for the classified forums (https://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk...splay.php?f=54) where is says "site or domain".

I tried this but the results are not focused, seems Google is disregarding or not able to filter down.

example: I get results from the 'What is my boat worth' section. I'd like to include a screenshot but seems I'm only allowed to insert a URL.

"What is this boat worth?" is part of the classifieds sub forum. you can do what was suggested above with each individual classifieds sub forum.

"For Sale: Boats" (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...splay.php?f=55)
"For Sale: Parts & Accessories" (http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/...splay.php?f=56)

etc


EDIT: Disregard, this seems to produce the same results regardless of using the 55/56/etc
