    Hello guys,

    since I'm here in BHW, I read a lot of content and learnt how to navigate through the different sections.

    Something I find hard using is the "Search" tool.
    Sometimes I want to search for a thread I know exists, and whatever I type into the search bar point me to old posts or old threads and sometimes, even after going through all the pages of the Search result, the thread I was looking for isn't showing (Sometimes I remember part of the title and can't find it !)

    The easier way to do a search on BHW is using ... Google. But it doesn't work on new Threads.

    An example (which led me to share this thread), I wanted to search for the thread posted by a certain vendor, and I can't find it using his profile page... So I have to search for the thread using ... the search bar, can't find it, go to Google, can't find it because it's new and now, I had to go through the Marketplace and read all the latest threads to find it !
    Something has to be done, at least for the last use case I just shared.

    My suggestion is to make the search tool way better than it is now.
    Am I the only one finding this tool hard to use even for a simple request ?

    + Be able to access people' Threads (if they make it available for example, some people maybe want privacy or something). Or not just people but vendors on Marketplace or something.

    What do you guys think ?

    how come you can't find thread on vendor's profile page? Just check latest posts or "find all threads started by xxxx". You can easily find it.

    I think that the forum Search works extremely well.

    Did you try the "Newer than" option within the Search? I find that to be incredibly helpful in isolating the threads to look at. For example, if I know that there was a recent post on Facebook and unblocking, I can type Facebook unblock in the first box, and October 20 in the Newer than box.

    And if you know the member who wrote the post, you can use the "Posted by Member" box.

    I found it in the BOTTOM of the "Posting" tab, written in a long sentence with a smaller font. (Thanks btw)
    There are ways to optimize the navigation when you search something was my point. In here since 3 years and just discovered this feature...

    The newer than feature is great when you know it's recent. But I found authentical nuggets reading here and can't find them without intensive search.
    "Someone shared a Dropshipping/Instagram/Reddit repost thread very interesting" - If you have very used keywords, you find your nugget drawn in all the content.

    My suggestion would be to give a "weight" to certain threads depending on their number of likes on the first post, the number of pages (and shown in the search results by default) etc...

    If I'm interested in Telegram marketing and I want to learn more about it, I can't find without scraping one by one leaving the "well-known" thread hidden (that's why I was suggesting the number of pages)
