Is it possible to provide a search bar at top or bottom?

I can't find the details of certain stocks, whether there any older threads related to it or not.

Alchemist, also see if something can be done for TLA's because the search requires the term to have more than 3 characters. So, for example, we can't currently search for ABB or ITC or SBI.

Try using Google.

This forum is well indexed in Google and most of the threads do show up in the results.

Just type this:

"site:e-investing.in GMR" and search.

http://www.google.co.in/search?hl=en...IN322&ie=UTF-8

------------------

The reason why minimum of 4 letters are needed is that searching for small words overloads the database.

Imagine how many threads and posts have words like "and", "the" etc.
Thanks for the explanation. I haven't read the site FAQ :eek: but the search tip you have given could be added there if it isn't there already.

I feel it would be nice if there is a search option based on date. For an example if i missed one week's posts and I would like to read "all" the posts during that period at one search. "From" date & "To" date option. :sleep:

There already is an option to find posts older/newer than a particular date.

Hi Alchemist,
I didn't came online on saturday. And on sunday when I clicked on "New Posts", cause of some unknown issue I got posts of sunday only.
I want to see all messages which were posted on saturday i.e. 31 Oct 09 - please tell me how to accomplish this.

On the Search link, there is an option to find older posts but it forces you to give a search string too :(

Right.

Can this be changed to return all posts from the given dates.
