TechRepublic Technical Q&A - Searches?
Can I search for a term, say "Maintenance Contracts" through-out the TECHNICAL Q&A section?

Or do I have to review each message to find something?

You will need to search each question,the search will only give you the topic posted that has the keyword in the search,so when you enter Maintenence Contacts,it will yield the keyword Maintenance,so you will then have to review the next,if the mostrecent post does not give you what youare looking for.

That doesn't seem to be as good as it "could get."

Maybe a third-party "agent" can crawl around their website with a "string-search" to find something.
Any suggestions?

Congrats on being "tops" on the points list.
Thanks for your help.

I suggest that you conduct this search "in TechRepublic" instead of the Q&A section. This way you can pull up articles on maintenance contracts.

If you have a specific question regarding maintenance contracts, then append another keyword from your question in the Q&A section and you should be able to narrow down the parameters that way.

Or you can do an Advanced Search at the screen that pulls results from your first query.

I put a similar question into the Discussions area for the same problem - searching for existing, relevent messages.

I also submitted a question specific to my interest in the
Technical Q&A: CIO Republic - Vendor Q&A:
Question: "Maintenance Contract - Bonded"

Thanks for your help.

I have noticed that for some reason, the TR search feature works best with all lower case letters in the search string.
This is very true when searching for article titles.

make sure you search for
"maintenance contracts" in quotations - search both technical q&a and tech republic.

Most likely you won't get what you wanted
