RAGBRAI LI Route Announced on Jan. 27!

Forum Question: Searching the Forum?

Is there a way to search the forum? I’m trying to track down a thread I posted in a while back to find someone in my area to train with. I can’t remember what the thread topic was. The guy lives in/near Newton Kansas, but I’d like to be able to see a list of threads I posted in anyway.

Do a google search for: “shawndev site:ragbrai.com/forums” (minus the quotes). That way it will limit it to the forums section of Ragbrai. Bingo…. all the posts you’ve ever made.

wow, just learned someting from the mentor, there is a way to search !. So does that work with a subject too, like if I did beer site:ragbrai.com/forums would I get all the Kaintuck Kurbb Crawlers posts? :)

It would get every forum post with the word ‘beer’ in it. What it does is limits google to just that particular site. No way to limit it to just author or subject line, but it’s WAY better than trying to find it by just searching through the archives. (and yes… I think using “beer” as your search term will get all of MichRiders posts) :)
