    Default Search Function Question

    Please excuse my ignorance here if I am over looking something but it is possible to search for a phrase someone (specific) said in a thread they did not start?

    - click on advanced search
    - select "Search for single content type" tab near the upper left
    - have "posts" selected for search type
    - put your keyword or phrase in the keyword box, i do it in quotes just to be safe or because i've always done it that way. phrases will be harder than specific words you think someone said

    - next field, put the username, in quotes of the person you are looking up, select the "find latest posts by user" option in the drop down and make sure to check off "use exact name"

    then search.

    The search feature can be finicky sometimes and usually it works best if you know just exactly what you are hunting for.
    If this doesn't work, google caches a lot of stuff, so if it's a very unique phrase that could work too
    Biography:

    Grind is one of the internets most beloved and influential political thinkers and deep-level theorists in the modern era. He rose to prominence in early 2015 when he alleged, contrary to the dominant theory of christiefanism of the time, that Bill Clintons wife was indeed running for president and wasn't considering settling down to be a grandmother. In 2016, Grind was one of the key figures in proposing the new revolutionary theory of "30% is not a rare occurrence" which shook up the JPP political landscape like no other theory ever had before. His academic prowess, deep-level analysis and remarkable insight into human nature and psychology will undoubtedly result in further complexities being untangled and laid bare. He currently resides in boston, his hobbies include #rekking libs, vaping, and patriotism. You can find him in a thread near you.
