People often wish to “search” the coffee room for old threads, that they remember (and don’t want to manually look through all the individual forums to find) and want to restart (by making a new post to it) or simply read.
The easiest way to do so, is to go to Google (google.com) and enter the following in the search bar:
site:theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom davening with minyan
to search for davening with minyan. (Change davening with minyan to whatever you wish to search for.)
See this google search for how the above search will look:October 11, 2010 3:06 pm at 3:06 pm #721489
thanks! Good tipOctober 11, 2010 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #721490
Thank you! Can this be part of the information in the threads on top?October 11, 2010 3:45 pm at 3:45 pm #721491
I was told by member Chofetz Chaim that his name takes you to a direct CR search link.
I always find him in the dvar torah thread and click on his name.
Works great for me!October 11, 2010 6:52 pm at 6:52 pm #721492
Intereting tip. I wonder why there isn’t an official search option.October 11, 2010 7:19 pm at 7:19 pm #721493
I once asked in a different thread and the answer I got was to search through CC.
I do think YW should make an official CR search box though.October 11, 2010 8:43 pm at 8:43 pm #721494
There have got to be 1000’s of threads its high time to have a search tool.October 11, 2010 8:48 pm at 8:48 pm #721495
WIY – there are less than 1,000 threads. It must be, or Dr. Pepper would have started a thread claiming the status of #1000.October 11, 2010 8:58 pm at 8:58 pm #721496
The funny thing is this thread (a mere few hours old) is now the first result for searching for “davening with minyan” (see the link in the OP). I’ve seen Google index new CR threads literally minutes after it posted.
BTW, you can count the number of threads in each forum on the main page below the top 50 threads.October 11, 2010 9:02 pm at 9:02 pm #721497
There must be more than 1000 threads by now. I know I started a whole bunch myself. Probably close to 40 in the last few months alone. 🙂

Kasha- the problem with that count is that it includes deleted threads and posts. Someone with mod access could determine what percentage of threads and posts were deleted and use that to calculate the # of posts/threads.
But it does look like we’ve passed 1,000. I guess it’s just a milestone that Dr. Pepper failed to note, like the fact that today is the third “binary day” this month.
Maybe he’ll make up for it in November, but he still missed the most important one (forty two).
The count is updated after a mod does a “recount” option in the system. Until then it will be out of date. It has just been updated, so it should reflect an accurate count as of 5 minutes ago.October 12, 2010 12:05 am at 12:05 am #721499

Since this site doesn’t have a way of finding old posts I am requesting that the moderators allow new posts with topics that have been previously discussed. Also I am (and I’m sure others as well are) unlikely to join a stale conversation that has likely gone off topic, and it is extremely diffucult to steer an off topic thread back to the origional topic.December 14, 2010 10:11 pm at 10:11 pm #721506
isn’t it great when in the cofee room your name is on the last posted freshest thread?
P.S. No-one answer this!December 14, 2010 10:30 pm at 10:30 pm #721507

I agree with you 100%+December 26, 2010 6:31 pm at 6:31 pm #721508
Mods – any thoughts about adding a search within the Coffee Room, not just news? Thanks!
