How to use ePHOTOzine's search - A beginners' guide to using the ePHOTOzine site search
The main search box is opened by clicking the magnifying glass icon on the menu bar. This can be accessed from any page you're on throughout the site.
A search box pop up appears when you click the magnifying glass icon and it's automatically set to search the section of the site that you're currently viewing.
So if, for example, you are reading news and decide to search for the Canon EOS 5D you could key in EOS 5D and click on the magnifying glass icon to the right.
At this point a blue column appears on the left of the screen with any references to the Canon EOS 5D in all the other sections of the site. And the number of items it founds appears to the right.
So, at the time of writing and using the EOS 5D as our example, as well as the 98 News stories the search also found 31 Articles, 1 Book Review, 1 Directory, 2 Downloads 3 Equipment guides, 1017 Forum thread, 38 tagged photos,1 Pro Portfolio, 65 Reviews, 6 Techniques and 18 Videos. Each section is linked so you can go direct to those specific search results.
You can refine the search at this point and key in your new search words to the search box in the blue column.
You can also display the results by relevance or date. Relevance shows the nearest items to your keywords, So in our EOS example it will find the EOS 5D news before news mentioning the EOS 5D, while search by date orders the results with the latest mention of the EOS 5D first.
Try using the search to look up subjects such as bluebells when you're about to photograph them, or lenses when you're considering buying, or polarisers when you're wanting to learn how to use them. Our search is your friend :-)
