Help Topic: Searching

The search feature can be used to search all areas of the community quickly based on keywords you enter.

Quick Search
You can start a quick search by typing your keywords into the quick-search bar at the top of any page and pressing the "Search" button.

Advanced Options
If instead of typing your keywords into the quick-search bar, you click the "Advanced" link next to it, you will see some advanced options for searching.

The first option, "Find words" is where you can enter the keywords to search for.

The next option, "Find author" can be used to only find content from a specific user. As you begin typing ausername, you should see a dropdown with username suggestions that you can select from.

The next option, "Find by date" allows you to restrict the results to content added between particular dates. To select your date, click the button - this will bring up a calendar. From here you can select any date and your option will be filled into the search form.

The next option, "Find in forum allows you to restrict your results to content within particular forums. You can select multiple options by holding the Ctrl key on your keyboard (or the cmd key if you use a Mac) and clicking on your options.

You can leave any of these options blank, however you must supply at least one search criteria when submitting the form. Once you have filled in the options that you require, press the Do Search button.

Inline Search
When you are viewing a particular topic, or a particular forum, you will notice that the search bar changes from "Search Forum" to "Search This Topic" - this allows you to easily and quickly search through the current topic, forum, or application, without getting search results for other areas of the forum.

Once you have submitted your search, a tabbed page of results will appear - you can change the selected tab to choose which area of the community you wish to search. For example, results under the "Forums" tab will bring up any topics and posts that contain your search keywords, while the "Members" tab will bring up any member accounts that match your search criteria.

You can change the order of the results to sort by relevance or to sort by date using the options at the top of the results page.

The keywords that you searched for will be highlighted like this.

Once you have found the result you are looking for, you can click on it to bring up the page, or, if you are searching through the forums, you can click on the preview icon to preview the search results without having to leave the search page.

Lizsshi : (08 November 2015 - 07:26 PM) Let's vote for SHINee!~
Sue2005 : (08 November 2015 - 12:30 PM) Hey all. After I posted the comment there was an increase of voting. So whoever voted thank you very much but this is not enough. Please keep on voting and ask your family and friends to do so as well. Also remember you can sign in with multiple ID's to vote and can vote every day so please keep it going as the amount we have now is not enough. Right now EXO and BIGBANG are leading with most of the votes. And most of the votes are from China so you can clearly see the reason as to why EXO and BIGBANG are leading. So people from Japan, Korea, Europe, America, and all the other fans VOTE VOTE VOTE. I know that there are many fans out there more fans than EXO or BIGBANG. All the SHINee fans out there if you truly are a SHINee fan please vote and whoever voted please keep voting. As a fan it is not just you going and taking pictures of them or giving gifts to them or doing other things but also making them win is also our job. We all know their music is great but that itself is not going to help them get awards and win so everyone please step it up. Please make SHINee who deserves these awards win than bands that don't (Don't get me wrong, I think all bands out there should deserve to win but I think SHINee deserves it more). Once again thank you people for whoever voted and for those who still have to please do so and keep it going and I apologize in advance for hurting someone's feelings as it is not my intension to do so. Also everyone who have accounts in other SHINee fan sites please upload the message of voting. Spread the word everyone. THANK YOU =)
OT5Love : (08 November 2015 - 10:27 AM) Please, vote up everyday ^^
OT5Love : (08 November 2015 - 10:27 AM) I see where we're lacking and that is 70% of SHINee's fanbase (K-Shawols and J-Shawols) aren't voting enough while other countries are!
OT5Love : (08 November 2015 - 10:25 AM) Wow! *Claps hands* Nicely said!
Sue2005 : (08 November 2015 - 10:17 AM) Hey all. Voting for MAMA is now open. All of you please take your time and vote for SHINee. SHINee is in last place with 8.8% votes for Best Male Group with EXO (31.7%), BIGBANG (30.6%), Super Junior (14.9%) and BTS (10.6%) leading. SHINee is also in second to last with 10.9% votes for Oupu Best Dance Performance Male Group with EXO )33.2%) BIGBANG (29.9%) and GOT7 (12.4%) leading and in 3rd place with 15.8% votes for best music video with BIGBANG (32.4%) and f(x) (30.1%) leading. All the SHINee fans out there please vote and make SHINee win as I truly think they deserve to win all these awards as they showed their best and did a lot of hard work. I personally think they did an amazing job this year and I think their work is the best than anyone else. Please vote for them as they deserve these votes than other artists who are out there especially BIGBANG. There is not enough time so please hurry. And please announce these on other media sites as I have not much experience in this as you all do. Thank you and I apologize in advance if I made any rude comments or hurt someone's feelings.
