TheLitForum.com Forum Index Filtering
To filter the list based on some text, type the text into the filter field and click “Filter”. The special symbols "/s" and "/c"(both
without the quotes) indicate sticky and closed threads respectively. Filtering is cumulative, with each successive filtering only
including the currently-displayed rows. This allows a search to be narrowed with a sequence of consecutivevfilter steps. To start
filtering again with the complete list, click “New Search”. Filter text is not case-sensitive.
Filter text by default may be in any column. To restrict it to a single column, precede the phrase with the column number followed by
a colon, for example: “3:sowry”. Column numbers are shown before the column titles.
Multiple phrases may be searched for at once with the phrases being separated by AND (&) and OR (|) symbols. AND conditions are
evaluated first with OR conditions last. This is equivalent to the expression (A&B)|(C&D)|(E&F). Do not include spaces
around these symbols unless you want spaces in your search phrase. To include & or | in the search phrase, type it twice, for
example, “R&&C”. Each occurrence must be doubled, so to search for “A && B”, you will need to enter “A &&&& B” as the search phrase.
