IMPORTANT FORUM SEARCH GUIDELINES
The Apache Friends Forum Search facility has now been restored and so all past and present topics and posts are now available again to be searched and the search engine in phpBB3 would seem to far outshine the search engine of the old phpBB2 forum.
It is recommended to always search the forums before starting a new thread as most questions relating to XAMPP have been asked and answered many times before - this can be a big time saving recommendation.
For best results it may be just a case of experimenting with the keyword(s) and (new in phpBB3) the phrases used and the selected Search in forums: used in your search criteria, for example, XAMPP for Windows if searching this English forum.
You can also specify to see all available content of a post in the results or just a few lines, selected by using the drop box characters of posts.
In some forum themes is advisable to use the Advance search function for best results.
NEW SEARCH TIP
Search for solved topics only which may speed up your search for a solution.
1. Keyword = solved
2. Search for all terms or use query as entered = selected.
3. Search in forums = XAMPP for Windows
4. Search within = Topic titles only
5. Display results as = Topics
6. Click Search.
7. Right click on a topic of interest then select to open in a new background browser tab.
Thanks for reading this and good luck with your search.
