posting a search

When you want to post as search, it can be problematic because the search number expires quickly.

You can search this site using an off-site search engine, and post the link from your browser.
eg. "search this site".
When searching for a phrase this may actually be preferable to using EMD's search.

If you wish to post a search for posts by a specific user there are a couple of handy links in the user profile which you can right-click and copy.

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

Or, if you wish to post a specific search from within EMD you will have to construct the search url by hand.
