Not an item to buy or selll.
Is there a method to search this site other than scroolling?
Thanks for any help.Dec 27, 2019 at 8:55 pm #3624348Mike BBPL Member
On mobile there is a search box, click on the 3 bars towards the top left of the headerDec 28, 2019 at 12:54 pm #3624562Chris MalnowskiBPL Member
Is the question about searching particular sub-forums (like gear swap) versus searching the entire site? I can see that being a need. I wanted to see if anyone was selling a vargo bot 700. I could search the entire site (which has its benefits), but would like to just search gear swap.

Not perfect, but if I was searching for a Vargo Bot in gear swap, I’d not use the BPL search (which is way too basic for a site search in this day and age), I’d instead type the following in the URL bar: vargo bot gear swap site:backpackinglight.comDec 29, 2019 at 6:26 pm #3624742Chris MalnowskiBPL Member
Agreed. I think that’s what the OP was wondering. Is there a decent way to search this site, or is it just easier to use google search with the “site:” operator.Jun 6, 2020 at 8:06 am #3651305Philip BBPL Member
along with that, is there a way to sort by post date? They do not appear in date order, which is frustrating. I cna’t tell if something was posted yesterday or in 2016 without clicking on every one. I even added 2020 to the search and it was zero help.
