Problem With Forum Search

Tue Aug 02, 2016 2:06 am

trying to search for some keywords and get this error:

"Information: The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: video problem.
You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards. "

Don't use the forum search. It's useless.
Instead use Google and include raspberrypi.org as part of the search terms.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated RPiOS Buster w/ Desktop OS.

One thing that is wrong with these forums is people who use all caps subject lines. It makes it look like the poster is shouting at people and makes one not want to provide answers.

Use google, type this into the search box

Code: Select all

site:www.raspberrypi.org/forums PI
That will search this forum (and only this forum) for the word PI.
