Would there be a reasonably easy way to search the forums for posts like the screenshot below, where a specific question is asked, and a specific (correct) answer is given? Or is there only tedium?

I think some edited compilation of these kinds of posts, put together in a QnA-type document, would be a great help to beginners (and not-so-beginners too) on how to get the hang of doing tasks like searches, visual filters, and other Logos-centric things that are only generally alluded to in the introductory videos.

I hope these two kind folks don't mind being used as examples...

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

For sure it is difficult to find specific information like this and it would be great if it were in one place. I continually am learning how to discover helpful information. The Logos wiki is my first place to go. Then I do a Google site search of the forums. Also MJ put together a great list of helpful links here - https://community.logos.com/forums/p/105287/731395.aspx#731395

Tedium. Outside of the wiki (which is helpful when you know what and HOW to search for it), the best method is to use this syntax on Google: site:community.logos.com SEARCH QUERY

There is a wiki page of Tips from the Forum. People should feel free to add to it nuggets like this in one a Q&A format that they discover on the forums:

This is the best approach IF AND ONLY IF-

  (a) people add these as they come across them

  (b) they are organized (probably by document/tool type)

  (c) there is a readily accessible link to the page rather than making folks search the wiki
