You need to do some "Google-Fu" but it is possible.

How: site:http://activerain.com/questions/ SEARCH TOPIC

Explanation:

So, I just researched this and here is my process for finding the answer:

  1. Look at the URL of this question, it shows that questions are grouped in a directory called "questions"
  2. Next utilize the Google "Site" search operator to limit search results to only "http://activerain.com/questions/"  (technically, you don't need the "http://" part, just the "activerain.com/questions/" part.
  3. Put a space and then type in your search term.
  4. Enjoy your search results targetting just this section of AR!

if you don't see the question on the last few pages it is fair game to ask again. Heck some people ask the same question on the same page.

Filters are here simply terrible. I guess that's why we have the same questions asked again and again.

I'm not so sure it is possible.  There is certainly evidence of the same question being asked over and over again.

There is no effective way.  Maybe AR and Bob Stewart can put it on their to-do list.

I do not know unless it is redunant I think for the most part people do not care if you ask the same questions especially if it has not been asked in awhile!

 I don't think there is a way to do this specifically. Would be kinda nice given how much content there is here now!

I do not believe we can search specifically for questions.  Search on keywords and the question may show in results.

I don't believe you can. I remember them speaking abt this feature (or at least people asking for it) and they said it would be a future upgrade. however, ar has changed owners since then so it may not be a priority. that being said, you can generally search wi/ ar (w/ search button, so you may find it that way.

Great question!  I also see this in a local community blog where local residents ask for help regarding cleaning, building a deck, babysitting etc. Every few days, the same question is asked again by a new member and it starts all over again.
