In the past, used this from time to time, but just tried it and severely bogged down trying to get past 'Local' entries by the dozen. Gave up as each location has several entries.

Think you could do with a 'search Local' page and ignore all

Local - <placename> - <topic>

entries in main search...

Use Google ?

site:mumsnet.com is your friend.

I never use website search boxes.

Yep. Good point, well made, NetworkGuy. We'll look into that.

With so many threads on MN, MN search offers date range, author and so on, cumfy

I think you're missing out if you've never tried it and I really doubt Google could do as good a job.

Thanks, Helen. Hope MNHQ staff enjoy the weekend...

They may not pay their taxes but Google are rather handy at the search thing.

Google searches can be refined in those ways too.

I think the MN search would be most handy when the nickname is a very common word/name.
