Search help

I always have trouble searching for two word (or more) terms. For instance, if I wanted to search "silent sea", how do I go about it? I tend to get either results on "silent" or "sea" but not the combination. Thanks.

I used the Advanced Search (under the Search tab) and put "silent sea" in quotes just as you wrote, and it returned your post only, with no hits on silent or sea alone.

+1@ RunningBum on the quotes. Another option is to use the plus sign. For example, in this case, silver+sea.

In advanced search you can also limit the search to just one forum, such as travel.

But I am sure others have mentioned the Netflix show "Silent Sea" somewhere on the forum...why isn't that showing up in the results?

A search of the thread “what new series are you watching” shows 7 uses of “silent” and all are related to “silent witness”. For every show there has to be a first mention, perhaps you’re the first for the show Silent Sea

In addition to the other comments, I tried the google search and "Silent Sea" came up empty.

I'm gonna suggest that you are having an experience that I have from time to time - "I could have sworn I saw that here", and later, it shows up somewhere else.
