Thanks for this ^ I maybe have read this method in the past but have forgotten it since (I'm not very internet search engine literate). Bookmarked this time.
If it is not in a Tips and Tricks thread or Guide on this forum somewhere I think it should be added as a tip in the FAQs or something? Maybe over here?
(side note: the hide/show tags don't seem to be functioning in this thread - I recall this being a widespread issue sometime ago - or maybe there were photos linked that a host site lost)
It has been a minor annoyance for a long while that it seems I have to log in just to execute a search, especially when I am on the go. And frustrating that a search cannot have strings that are 3 characters or less. The mobile and tech world is an acronym soup. Most of which are 3 characters or less. The list could really get quite extensive.
