Blog 179 - Improved Search Methods to find the Blog you want on motorhome-travels.net site

by keef & annie hellinger 2 May 2022, 8.52 a.m.


INFO UPDATE


NOTE this supersedes any advice given in earlier blogs when previous Blog development tools were used. All of those blogs will be retrospectively updated to that effect and will point to this blog.

From 2nd May 2022 this is the definitive method for finding what you want.


SEARCH FACILITIES AVAILABLE

  1. List of Blogs

  2. Dropdowns

  3. INDEXES dropdown

  4. BLOG dropdown

  5. BIG TRIPS dropdown

  6. Hashtags

  7. The END

Hope it helps you find what you want


NEW PAGE

We have also added a new page called LIST OF BLOGs split in 3 parts


  1. Part 1, will allow you to find the Blog by Blog number in ascending number sequence, by implication WIX forces Blogs to be displayed in reverse date addition order, which since I migrated all my blogs up to December 2021 from Moonfruit is in rather a random sequence, this addresses this issue.

  2. Part 2 on this new page shows all the blogs with just the title in post order sequence showing 50 per page, in essence a quick overview.

  3. Part 3 is an alternative yearly view of the blogs in ascending date sequence i.e from 2012 when I started the motorhome-travels blog to both document our travels plus hopefully share some of our hints and tips learnt along the way, an experience shared will hopefully stop others from making some of the mistakes we have made along the way. What's that old expression "show a person how to fish and they will learn to feed themselves"....or something like that!

The INDEXES drop down

  1. By year. This will give you all Blogs assembled by year, some blogs appear in more than one year especially if they were written retrospectively. These when used give you the BIG format of blog. They are in descending year. Hit the ALTERNATIVE (read part3) button if you would like to see them in a shorter format where they are in ascending year.

  2. By Month. Short format by months of the year they were written in.

  3. Tags Descending. Arranged by how often they are used on a Blog, the number next to the tag shows you, click on one and you will see all the blogs represented by that TAG word.

  4. Tags Alphabetically. Allows you to find any tag word you may be looking for. Again the number next to the tag shows you how often they occur, click on one and you will see all the blogs represented by that TAG word.

  5. Blogs in Ascending Order. Refer to part 1 here.

  6. SEARCH & SEARCH RESULTS. Use this to search for absolutely anything on the site. Once found in the search results click on it to go directly to it, so you can read on.

  7. A-Z search facilities. All Blogs have been registered to a letter of the alphabet, some will appear under more than one letter but essentially if you are looking for something it is either the start letter or a letter that is Key to describe that blog, click on it to scroll through Blogs identified this way until you find what you want
