Searching for USB info

Tue Aug 08, 2017 4:07 am

"USB" is an essential element of my search. But forum search ignores it for being to common. Please remove "USB" from this list. Information on USB is far to important to block.

The forum Search is simple, it cant handle searching for a search string with only three letters.
use Googles "site:" option instead, like so:

site:raspberrypy.org/forum USB

Thank you much!

Still a lot of results. But now I have a little less to sort through.

I used:
site:raspberrypi.org/forum android USB
on Google.

Google apparently requires "site:" to be spelled all lower-case. "Site:" gave search results unrelated to the forums.

Okay, I have edited my post, which I wrote from memory, (wondered if the ":" was needed, but I thought you would figure it out) and with the editor uppercasing the first letter of the "sentence".
