Class: Generic Google How To
Difficulty: Not hard to remember
Time: According to Google, milliseconds
Desirability: Handy if the forum search function is not working out for you

The team are working hard to fit in the time required to look into the search feature of phpbb3 and see if it can be improved, but in the meantime it might be helpful to know that Google's site search feature offers a very (perhaps too) effective method of finding answers on the boards.

Type this into Google's search bar, for example, if you're looking for an answer about the openbox menu opening when you right click on the desktop:

Code:
site:peppermintos.net openbox menu right click desktop


Like this.

Please do take the time to look for a solution to your problem before posting a new support request. Even this early in, we have endeavored to write as many how to guides as we can, and answered a number of common support requests satisfactorily. Using these existing resources helps keep the boards clean, saves everyone time and promotes all our good mental health ;) .

Caveat lector: The search results given by Google will only be as recent as the last time the crawler got here. It is worthwhile browsing the last week or so's worth of posts for your issue, too.
