Searching

    Once you have over 200 hubs, searching for a particular one in the list can be daunting.
    Regardless of being able to sort alphabetically by title, it's still a long list.

    This problem is compounded when you suffer from 'senior moments,' and do not recall the exact title you gave the article, but only the subject.

    It would be good if we could have a search utility to search only our own hubs list by keywords or phrases.  wink

      You can use CTRL+F to search for text in the titles on the stats page.
      https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/se … t-or-links
      You can also export this in CSV format and search n Excel, OpenOffice Calc, Google Drive, etc.

      You can also search the indexed content on your subdomain using a search formatted like this.
      this searches your subdomain for the word "tantrums" for example.

        Ok, thank you all.
          @ WF and SpaceShanty, that I can remember, (I think) LOL

        @ Matthew--that was a useful link, but I doubt I'll remember all that's included, and when I used it, and substituted the term I wanted, it came up with zero results..(it gave one irrelevant result), and likewise "Ctrl F" came up empty. 

        I conclude that I must have somehow, for whatever reason, have deleted that hub.  sad
        (I presume that the "Ctrl F" function would also show hubs not yet published, or that are still extant, but that have been un-published?)

        May I then suggest that the "Ctrl F" feature be shown/listed/mentioned at the top of the stats page for everyone's reference, especially for non-techie types like myself?

        Thank you all.

          What was the hub about that you were looking for?

            It was a nostalgia piece I had written about grand plans for a superb doll house for my daughters, that never came to pass.

            Maybe I deleted it under HP's "too personal" standards...I don't know.  I sure isn't showing up under any kind of search, manual or computer-generated.

              If you deleted the Hub recently it will show on the stats page with strike-through text on the title, if you deleted it some time ago, then it will no longer be listed.

                nope--not there.  I'm sure I deleted it some time ago.  And what's worse, it seems I wrote it within the HP capsules at the time, and not in Word, which I often do...so it's really gone, and I'd have to start over.  But then again, perhaps HP is not the proper venue for that article; "too personal."

                  But, it still lives in your head.  Find it there and write it again.smilesmile

                    Yes, WF, that is true--it is still in my head.  But, as I said, perhaps my original reason for deleting it may have been that it seemed to stray into the "too exclusively personal" arena that HP discourages....

                  I searched for it too and no luck.

          If you still have the Hub, even though unpublished or not featured, and if you still remember the title, go to your Account page and search using Ctrl F.

      Yes, that would be very nice indeed!

      Yeah... like tabs that give separate headings so our topics can be grouped. smile

        On our dashboards you have the option in the pull down menus to display your Hubs by group.  This feature has existed for years.  How is this tab thing you keep requesting different?

          So... it allows us to do what? I've never seen it, although I put all my work in categories on my former profile. I didn't really know to what end though. I thought it had to do with what ppl would find when they googled a specific subject.

          My idea "that I keep going on about" lol... is that when ppl arrive at our page, it would have categories. One tab says "poetry" one says "how to" etc. A visitor could click on what ever tab they were interested in and go right to that category. They might see one hub (pic) from each category displayed on the home page instead of all our work in one long row.

          So is that what we have? I'll go check it out now as I've never seen that option.

          Edit... So I went and checked it out. Two years... never noticed that once. I am not a detail person. So yeah, we have the ability. I just think it would be cool if our pages were organized that way at first look.

      What I do is in the search bar type in the name of the hub that is close to the name I've given it and type in my user name as well. It usually pops right up. This I do for my Just Ask Susan account.

    Press Ctrl and f on your keyboard, this will let you search for a term on the page, if you can remember at least one word in the title you can find it.
