A New SEARCH Feature Added to Sidebar

Hi Everyone!

Please note that you will now see a new SEARCH feature added on the right sidebar of this blog

This search feature will allow you to search all the blog posts that are part of this overall blog.

Try a keyword or a phrase to see if it was mentioned among the various posts.

One other thing I did notice with the SEARCH feature is that if WordPress gives you a list of result “hits” in which the search term is contained among the posts,  IT DOES NOT HIGHLIGHT the hit.  You will still have to read through the entire post to find the words you used in your search.  So you will have to do a little bit of work.  I sure wish WordPress at least highlighted the search term used among the various hits.

Another thing I did notice in this SEARCH feature is that it will not find keywords or phrases that may be contained in the COMMENTS left by readers.  I was a little surprised at that inability by WordPress but it is what it is.

If you remember that something was mentioned in the blog but you just can’t remember when it was mentioned or in what particular post, then just try the SEARCH feature in the Sidebar using some creative search terms to see if you can find it within a post.

Thank you.
