Hi John,
"Search in topic subjects" is not the same as what "Search in topic titles" would be. For example, today a poster asked "What is the best touring bike?". I went to search and typed in the words, "best touring bike", and clicked on the "Search in topic subjects" option. The result of the search presented every topic that had the words best, touring, and bikes, whether these words were in the title or in the subject. So that included a whole bunch of topics where someone said something like:

"Next week I'm going touring around the region on my bike. I'm sure I'll have the best time!"

A search option of "Search in topic titles" would only turn up results that had those 3 words in the title.

Thanks for replying, anyway.

Hi Erik,
I just performed the same test, and my results were much different. I placed "best touring bike" in the search box, selected "Match all words" and then clicked the checkbox for "Search in topic subjects only". My results that were returned consisted of the following three threads:
- The Best Touring Bikes/Frames (and other parts, as well)
- Best touring bike buy
- Best touring bike under $1,000

Using the "Match any words" operator returns many more results, but they still all have at least one occurrence of one of the words in my search phrase in the title, or as SMF forums call it, subject.

Hi Erik,
I believe that what you are looking for is the existing option titled "Search in topic subjects only". This searches the subject, what SMF forums labels the post title, for the keywords entered. Hope that this helps.

This topic has been moved to Cycling Events.
More appropriate in cycling events instead of general discussion.

where did you sign up for this self containted group ride? is this an ACA sponsored ride? i found out about the TransAm trail a yr or so ago and i would love to do it at some point in my life. im 24 now and hopefully in the next yr or 2 i will be able to do it.

Yes, the self contained transam is one of the ACA tours. You can check it out here and also check out all of the other self contained and event style tours that Adventure Cycling Association has to offer.

The issues with the Smileys should now be resolved. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for bringing it to my attention.

Should I have erased the word "quote" from the start of it, too?  thanks for your patience.
If you use the "reply with quote" link you should not have to do anything at all except type in your response.

When you use the quote button it adds information to the opening quote tag that allows it to display the person and post that is being quoted. In your last post with the quote attempt it looks like it had two closing quote tags. the "/" in front of the word quote signifies that it is a closing tag. The opening tag will start with the word quote and not have the /.

Click on the "reply with quote" link to the right of this post and you should see a proper example of how the quote tags should work.

The first paragraph of my message above was a quote from  another member.  I can't figure out how you guys do this quote thing so it says "quote from...."  Can anyone tell me how this works?  I'm kind of a computer "newbie".  thanks for any directions you can give!
Hi John,
On each individual post there should be a link in the upper right hand corner that says, "Reply with quote". If you choose that it should add the message you want to quote with the quote tags around it. That is what instructs the forums to add the quote from heading and show that portion of the post as a quote. When you give it a try you will see how it adds the quotes and you can remove a portion of the post at that point if you want or need to. Hope this helps!

I'm not of much help on this topic but I have heard good things about this beer. Sounds like it might be one to keep and eye out for.

Well, the crank arms themselves are most likely in good shape but the actual chain rings might be worn or the bottom bracket might need replacing. If the chain rings are so worn that the chain is starting to skip it would be wise to replace the rear cassette, chain rings and chain all at the same time as replacing individual pieces will accelerate wear on the whole set. If your bottom bracket does not spin smoothly or makes noise it may be time for that to be replaced. Your local bike shop should be able to help determine these issues.

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already.  Hope this is what you are looking for.
Thanks for pointing it out, I didn't know this section existed. But it only answers half of what I was looking for. The way it is set up, only the folks doing the ride can add their "ride". I was hoping a section could be added to the forum for websites/blogs that members of this board have discovered could share with other readers.
We are looking into ways to highlight different blogs in the future either on our main site or our blog. In the meantime anyone could start a forum thread that lists cycling blogs and asks others to contribute. Thanks for passing along the ideas.

We do have a something similar to what you are asking for already. Over in our Ride Registry there is a link for online journals. Choosing this link will allow you to see all of the rides that people have entered that included a link to an outside journal. Hope this is what you are looking for.
