Try putting a space between vs. and bsc - I was able to find the thread when I searched for docs.hp.com vs. bsc

 


 

 

Now I have 1 hit - this topic right here (We need an 'advanced search screen'), but not my thread.

 

 

Meanwhile google has a hit to the old forum and another to the new for this search (to my thread).


Hope this helps!

Did you change the drop-down from "Board" to "Community"?  If you don't,  the search is going to restrict your results to the selection in the drop-down (in this case, just the Feedback board).

 

On a related topic, I just posted the following in the Tips & Tricks area - Searching in the HP Enterprise Business Community

Torsten - you've still got the spacing issue between vs. and bsc with that link - try this one:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/searchpage/tab/message?advanced=true&filter=openResponse&phrase=...

 

And there's not a drop-down on the results page because you're no longer in a specific category/board section of the site.

Re: We need an 'advanced search screen'

Same result with space (still 1 hit):

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/forums/searchpage/tab/message?advanced=true&filter=openResponse&phrase=...



I usually don't know about the specific sub forum when searching anything.

Hope this helps!

Re: We need an 'advanced search screen'

I'm not seeing the space in there - take a look at the portion of the url that's passing your search parameters:

 

phrase=docs.hp.com+vs.bsc

 

there needs to be another "+" in there between vs. and bsc - otherwise you're just searching for "vs.bsc", which doesn't occur in the original thread.

Re: We need an 'advanced search screen'

I was trying the same term in google (correct hits) and here (wrong hits).

 

"docs.hp.com vs. bsc"

 

definetely with space!

 

 

But there is also no hit for "vpars on sd2 servers", where it should be.

 

google:

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Virtualization/vPars-software-on-SD2-servers/td-p/4733125

 

I cannot find it here ...

 

 

Would it make sense to set the advanced "with all the words" option across all the forums as a default?

 


Hope this helps!
Regards
Torsten.

Re: We need an 'advanced search screen'

Torsten - I'm sorry, but I just can't duplicate your results.

 

Please see the two attachments for what I see when I enter "docs.hp.com vs. bsc" in the search box (one for the "suggestions" and the other for the results page upon hitting "Search").

Re: We need an 'advanced search screen'

Thanks Kevin for the 'short' answer.

That's surely matches what most of us observed/concluded.

We understand kudo's and solved markers are separate thingies.

IMHO there is room for a simple improvement though, by adding an author kudo to a post selected as 'the one solution'

 

To stick with the examples:

1) solved, but no specific reply selected. There is nothing more the system can do. 

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Languages-and-Scripting/calculating-variables-with-decimals/m-p/4824241



2) a specific reply marked as the solution. Here an automatic kudo would be appropriate for that reply

http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/LVM-and-VxVM/how-to-generate-HDD-I-O/m-p/4826039

 

But no worries mate. Until you get this fixed automatically, we'll all chime in at times and sprinkle kudo's to match the solved flag, and then some! I have plenty of kudo's left to give. It is not like there is a shortage :-)

 

Cheers,

Hein
