How to Customize Search to Your Specifications

If you like how the Search function works as described below, you can save your Search preferences so that this method of searching for information on FlyerTalk will become the default for you and you do not have to configure this setup again! How to do this is included in the instructions detailed below.

To view new threads or mileposts in all forums except for the OMNI forum:
  1. Click on Search, which will be one of the choices (more specifically, the third choice from the right, between New Posts and Quick Links) that will appear in the blue bar at the top of any thread or forum.
  2. At the bottom of the resulting small Search Forums pop-up window, click on Advanced Search.
  3. Click on the Miles&Points forum to highlight it in the large Search in Forum(s) list on the right side of the Search Forums area.
  4. Then, after scrolling down towards the bottom of the list, press the Shift key and select the Misposted Threads forum, which will result in all forums being selected except for the OMNI forum.
  5. If desired, deselect certain forums (whose new threads or mileposts you do not want to view) by clicking on them using either the Control key on a PC computer or the Command (Apple) key on an Apple Macintosh computer.
  6. In the Find Posts From pop-up list, choose Your Last Visit.
  7. In the Show Results as area, choose either to Show Results as either threads or posts.
  8. At the bottom of the Search Forums window, click on the Go button next to Save Search Preferences so that you will not have to set this search method again every time you wish to use it.
  9. Click the Search Now button above the Save Search Preferences pop-up list.
The desired result(s) should appear almost instantly.
