    Old posts

    I was looking for an old post (pre 2007) but I can't seem to find it. Are these still searchable?

    An easy way, especially if you don't remember the exact title of the thread is to search by member name and look at all posts by that member. It may be slow but you can narrow down by date. For instance if somebody has 10 pages of posts between 2005 and 2009 start on page 5 and adjust by date.

    I have had trouble with the serach function since the format change. I have put in words I know that are fairly unique to certain threads but the search function will not pull them up. I have found them doing as corky has suggested.

    Keywords don't seem to help at all, unless you know the exact, and I mean EXACT title of the thread.

    I also had trouble trying to find a thread from a while back.

    use google - "[search term] site:realbeer.com"
    My posts are definitive. Reality is frequently inaccurate.

    HogieWan has it right. I recently replied to a thread from a year ago (just today) because I came across it on Google. The thread had to do with our company so I had to respond. Use the key words you recall and add Realbeer.com and it should come up. This is funny because this just happened to me today. Good Luck
