    string search in forums

    I don't know how to search for a text string in the Ubuntu forums.
    example: search for error message string "your computer failed to suspend."
    keywords like "your" and "computer" and "failed" don't mean anything.
    So I go to google and search for the string, which gets good results.
    Am I missing something?

    Thumbs down Re: string search in forums

    I also use google to search for a specific string on the forums. However, I use a special query to restrict the results to ubuntuforums.org

    site:ubuntuforums.org "STRING TO SEARCH FOR"

    The results aren't as up-to-date as the normal forum search, but I still tend to get good results.
