    help finding things on this board

    About 2-3 years ago when I join this board if you wanted to look for a topic you could do a search, (example: paper pieced mouse) and you would get tons of results on the subject. Ever since they changed the formate I can't find anything I'm looking for no matter how I try. I'm I doing something wrong or is it just not possible?

    In the search box, your results will be anything with those words in it. They will be listed in the order of greatest match to least. If you type in paper pieced mouse, this listing comes up first because it has all the words in it. Below there will be others that have one or more of the words. If you use quote marks "paper pieced mouse", you will get only listings that have exactly that.

    I usually use the "advance search" mode. I get closer results by narrowing the search parameters. It's on the green bar at the top right of the page.
