This may have been addressed somewhere before and if so I apologize for the repost, I did do a search and didn’t find this topic. This is a feature I haven’t seen in a while and wanted to know if I am doing something wrong, in the past (a while back) you could do a search and break it down by projects, blogs, etc. to narrow your search down. Now it seems you do a search and it groups everything together. Is there something I am doing wrong or is this a feature we can bring back or am I the only one who remember this?

I don’t know if you’re doing something wrong but I’m sure one of these guys should know. I don’t know why no one answered you. Question seems straight forward.

I would have thought at the very least one of the moderators would have chimed in…

Searching google instead and adding after your search term almost always gives better results than the LJ search box. If you add the word projects or blogs to your search you will get results more focused on that aspect if that’s what you want. For example

restore blog
gets results of people’s blog posts about restores and

restore projects
gets results for projects

If you don’t use the full word “projects” with the s it doesn’t work as well because that’s what’s in the URL.
