Would it be difficult to add related How-Tos to the search results? I think this would be rather helpful for most people as they would be able to accomplish something themselves, or at least try before they ask for someone's help.

Just a suggestion, feel free to add you two-cents in.

Can I put a question here?

My 2 cents is that I don't use the Search feature at this web site.

I find that I get much better results by do a Google search using this syntax:

site:computing.net my search string

Someone in this forum suggested that to me a while back and I've found it works much better than the search engine built into this site.

Hey,

For technical reasons, it wouldn't exactly be straightforward to add the how to results into the search. However, it is something I am looking at including as the section grows.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Oh, alright then. I was thinking it would be helpful to integrate them more into the website.

BUT, if it's not as easy as it sounds, oh well right?

Can I put a question here?

Matt,

After some work today and yesterday, I was able to integrate the How-to results into search. Now, if you search ALL, how to results will be there. Also, you can select How-tos in the drop down. Thanks so much for the suggestion!
